Molly-Mae Hague may one of the most successful women to ever come out of Love Island, have a boxing champ boyfriend, and live a luxurious influencer lifestyle, but that doesn't make being a new mum any easier.
The reality TV star welcomed her baby daughter Bambi with boyfriend Tommy back in January, and it turns out raising a baby isn't as easy as the Love Island baby challenge.
Over the course of her pregnancy, and now her motherhood journey, Molly-Mae, 23, has been updating fans on the process - and six weeks in, she's starting to feel the pressure.
Taking to her Instagram Story over the weekend, Molly admitted that she has been 'winging [her] way through each day', over the course of a 'super challenging' six weeks.
Posting a photo of herself with her 'hair washed and fresh PJs on', Molly gave followers a quick update.
"Bambi is six weeks old on Monday," she wrote.
"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.
"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.' Newborn life is absolutely no joke!"
Molly explained that she's being as transparent as possible to provide reassurance and comfort to other parents who might be finding the first few weeks difficult.
Molly-Mae and Tommy announced back in January that they had welcomed their baby girl Bambi.
Since then, the star has been ambushed with criticism from trolls and other mums on everything from the baby name she chose, to the amount of exercise she's getting as a new mum, to taking her little girl out for fresh air.
Despite her struggles, Tommy doesn't think Molly-Mae could be doing a better job.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain following his victory over Jake Paul, Tommy raved: "At the end of the day, this career is for those two.
"When I was in training camp, she was an amazing mother.
"She is the best woman anyone could ask for and because I was in training camp, I owe everything to her."
After bagging a reported £3.7 million for the fight, Tommy admits that he 'did very well at the end of the day'.
"It's a career high pay day for me," he said
"Well, not for me, because everything I do is for my little girl Bambi.
"Everything I do is to make sure she has a happy life."
