And some were even right.

Many Molly-Mae Hague fans have been theorising over her daughter’s name, and it seems that they were spot on when it came to one aspect of it.

Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury welcomed their baby girl Bambi in January and while we know where her name comes from now, it seems the influencer had teased it leading up to her birth.

The Love Island couple chose the name Bambi as it was Molly’s favourite fictional character growing up and she knew many people would have some questions.

Now, it seems that the new mum has admitted to dropping hints about her baby’s name on social media for her followers to figure out.

Speaking in a Q&A, one fan asked what she thought of fans thinking her baby’s name was going to be Cloud or Halo.

She wrote back: “I thought it was cute. I just love individual names so much… I was in a class at school with 3 Mollys and I always wished I had a name no one else had. People did also guess it was Bambi! As I did used to give a few very small hints.”

The Love Island star then went on to share insight about her biggest hint, where she posed in a t-shirt with a deer on it, joking that it was a “tiny” clue.

She originally posted the snap back before she had announced her pregnancy and was only three months along, with Maura Higgins commenting with seven love emojis and “the t-shirt.”

Maura also may have given the name away months before Bambi was born but nobody realised.

She gave her reality co-star a mug with the cartoon Disney character on it for her 22nd birthday and Molly thanked her on her Instagram Story, saying there was more to the image than we thought.

“Only the real ones know why this is special. Love you @MauraHiggins,” she wrote at the time.
