Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague returns to work three months after giving birth as she has 'bills to pay'
Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague has returned to work three months after giving birth to her baby girl.
Molly-Mae and her partner Tommy Fury welcomed their daughter Bambi into the world back in January, but Molly-Mae has revealed that she is already returning to work because she has "bills to pay".
The reality star, who is the creative director of fast-fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing, said in a new video posted to her YouTube channel: "At the end of the day, I am self-employed, so I have to work because there’s bills to pay."

She continued: "We've got a mortgage to pay, car bills to pay. I've got outgoings. I have to earn. I don’t get maternity leave pay. You don't when you're self-employed, so I have to get back to work."
Molly-Mae told her subscribers that she will be jetting off to Nice in the south of France for a fashion shoot, which she admits is "bittersweet".
"I am so excited, but it’s a little bit bittersweet because it’s going to be my first time leaving my baby," she said.
"She’s three months old now. It’s low key making me feel kind of sick. I’m not going to lie. You know that kind of homesick feeling you’d get."

Last month, Molly-Mae spoke candidly about motherhood and admitted that she didn't start feeling like herself again until Bambi was nearly six weeks old.
"Bambi is six weeks old on Monday. My little best friend for life. The last two days have been the first time I’ve felt like I’m slightly getting my life back in order," she said.
"Up until this point I’ve literally just been winging my way through each day, not finding it particularly easy at all (to be honest)… waking up in the morning/going to bed at night thinking 'here we go again.'"
Love Island airs on ITV2, and is available via catch up on ITVX and BritBox.
