Love Island couple Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury recently became parents, welcoming daughter Bambi. And now, Tommy has shared why they opted for the Disney-inspired name for their little one.

Appearing on Loose Women, Tommy shared that his partner had her heart set on the name for years.

"We spoke about it in the Love Island villa and loads more once we got out, but Molly told me that ever since she was a kid, she wanted to call her daughter Bambi," he told the panellists.

"So I'm not going to be that guy to take that away from her."

He also spoke about how he's finding fatherhood now he's no longer preparing for his long-awaited boxing match with YouTuber Jake Paul.

"There was a lot going on in the build-up to the fight and I was switching from being the aggressive fighter to trying be the daddy too, but having Bambi is the best thing that's ever happened to me," he said.

"Waking up everyday and seeing her little face, you can't be in a bad mood."

Last week, Molly-Mae opened up about how she's been coping being a mother.

"The last two days have been the first time I’ve felt like I’m slightly getting my life back in order," she said, before explaining that she had been finding it difficult.

"So many people said to me 'it gets easier' and I’ve had days where I really didn’t believe them or see how it would get easier, but I’m finally starting to see that it does!" she added.

While Molly-Mae was pregnant, she hinted she'd gone with an unusual name for their daughter.

"I’ve had the name picked out since I was basically a baby girl myself," she said last year. "I do not know anybody else with the name. I have not really seen any other girls with the name before, it’s like that different.

"It is super unusual, super different."
