“Being a mum is the hardest thing that’s ever happened to me”

Molly-Mae Hague has opened up about the struggles of motherhood in an emotional new YouTube video.

The mega-influencer has been MIA on the platform the last month until last night when she shared the ups and downs of being a new mum.

In a video titled “The Truth” she tells fans how she “doesn’t feel herself” since the birth of her baby girl Bambi in January but she says she wants to get back into her usual routine of uploading.

She said: “I’ve been trying to talk and nothing is coming out.

“I feel like what I’m saying isn’t making sense and that my brain is like, jumbled. It’s like my brain isn’t my brain anymore.

“I just don’t feel myself you know.

“It’s not like I need more time to come back because I do feel ready to come back. I want more than anything to come back to YouTube.

In the 11-minute long video, Molly is open and honest about how she is struggling with her feelings recently and seemed super emotional throughout.

She said: “Wholeheartedly, I have found it really really hard. The word I would use to describe the past two months would be overwhelming.

“I’ve been so overwhelmed every single day. You almost don’t believe the 360 that your life has taken.

“It’s the biggest life change ever that nobody no matter what they say can prepare you for.

“People said to me ‘Prepare yourself it’s the hardest job in the world’ but I just didn’t listen, I didn’t understand,” she shared.

“I just didn’t prepare myself for that and I didn’t listen. I didn’t realise what they were talking about or understand it.”

“I’m so happy now that Tommy is back”

Molly also mentioned how hard it was to navigate being a first time mum on her own while boyfriend Tommy Fury was away boxing.

She said: “I’m so lucky and grateful and happy now that Tommy is back properly and that we’re now doing this as a team.

“Things have been so much better and so much easier. I feel like the day he got home from the fight it was almost better than the day Bambi was born.

“The day she was born it was the best day of my life but on that day I knew that our journey as a family hadn’t started yet because Tommy had to go.

“I knew we wouldn’t be a family until he was back. It’d be four weeks until he was home so the first few weeks of Bambi’s life, I did a lot of it by myself.”
