Spending eight weeks together on a reality show at the beginning of a relationship can be a tad unconventional, but it's certainly stuck for Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury.

Explore Hague and Fury’s full relationship highlights, below.

As mentioned, Hague and Fury first met on the fifth season of ITV2’s Love Island. The pair were coupled up together on day five of the 2019 series and, despite a little drama early on, they quickly fell head-over-heels for one another. With one of the most solid courtships in that year’s villa, Hague and Fury sailed through to the all-important finale, finishing in a respectable second place.
September 2019: The pair move in together
Shortly after their Love Island stint, Fury revealed to The Sun that he and Hague were going to live together. “We're both really happy. We've bought an apartment in Manchester and we're going to move in together,” he told the outlet at the time.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan soon after their first major relationship milestone, Fury revealed that their experience of living together for the first time was “really good.” He added: “The biggest thing about moving in together is trust, and in a relationship, you have to be honest with each other.”
In the following months, Hague and Fury kept fans updated on their relationship with sweet social media posts of them celebrating Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, and everything in between.

After Jake Paul leaked the news early, the couple confirmed that their baby daughter was born on Jan. 23, 2022. Sharing the news on Jan. 30 via Instagram, Hague posted a black and white photo of the new family of three with the simple caption: 23/01/23🤍”.
In her Instagram Stories, Hague shared a little more about their bundle of joy. Celebrating one week since her birth, Hague wrote: “Becoming your mum has been the best thing to ever happen to me… It doesn’t seem possible but my love for you grows with each passing moment. There is no feeling like holding you in my arms little one, my heart literally explodes.” Hague went on to thank their daughter for “blessing us with the gift of being your parents. We promise to love and care for you unconditionally forever.”
On Fury’s Instagram stories, he shared a similar post writing “I’ll protect you forever my little girl.”
As for the name of their daughter? Hague took to Instagram on Jan. 31 to reveal that she and Tommy have named their little one Bambi. She posted a picture of her baby girl in a crib alongside a Disney Bambi toy, with the name in lights on the wall behind her.
In a previous Youtube Q&A video, Hague revealed they had the name picked out from the start. “I've had the name picked out since I was basically a baby girl myself,” she said. "It's always been my dream little girl name and luckily when I met Tommy and I told him the name that I'd always dreamt of using, he absolutely loved it too."
"It's a really really unusual and a different name, I do not know anybody else with the name. I've not seen any other girls with the name before, it's that different. I think you guys are going to either absolutely love it or hate it, but we absolutely love it. It's super unusual, super different, nobody will guess it because it's not really a name. It's not made up, it's totally not made up, I can't explain it," she said. "It's just not a name that has really ever been used before. I've searched on Instagram and I've seen there's a few girls with the name."
