Molly-Mae Hague and boyfriend Tommy Fury are “trying” to figure things out after a feeding problem with their four-month-old daughter Bambi. The couple, who met on ITV’s Love Island in 2019, welcomed their first child on 23 January, 2023.
In Molly-Mae’s latest YouTube video, ‘A Much Needed Glow Up’, she revealed that Tommy and Bambi ended up crashing her dentist appointment because the tot “has got into a bit of a habit of not liking to take bottles” from the professional boxer, adding that “she just gets really really fussy with him”.
The Love Island star told her 1.79 million subscribers: “We’ve been trying to figure it out, it literally could be anything. It could just be the fact that I breastfed her and I then obviously I do a lot of the bottles with her, so she’s kind of used to me doing it and kind of associates me with feeding time, obviously because we did start as a breastfeeding journey.
“This is not at all me being stereotypical or sexist in any way whatsoever but when you’re that baby’s mum, you do have a bit of a different...how do I explain it, it’s a mother’s touch isn’t it. I don’t know if I’m going to get in trouble for saying it but it is a mothers touch sometimes and she associates me with feeding time because like I say, we breastfed.”
Molly-Mae, who travels a lot for her work with fashion brand PrettyLittleThing, added: "Tommy and I have said that from now he’s going to do her bottles, well a lot more bottles, because obviously we really need her to get out of the habit of only liking to have her bottles with me, because that’s not going to work. Today was ridiculous, we can’t do that again. Say for example if I go away, he wants to be able to have her by himself.”
Later in the YouTube video, Tommy is seen asking the four-month-old: “What happened this morning Bam Bam?”, before saying: “She gatecrashed it [Molly-Mae’s dentist appointment] because she didn’t want to take any milk from da da”.
