Molly-Mae Hague has opened up about her body ‘struggles’ after having daughter Bambi, having been out shopping looking for new clothes, only to find ‘nothing fitted’.
See the new Zara outfit she bagged for Bambi here:
Reality star Molly-Mae, 23, welcomed Bambi - her first child with boyfriend Tommy Fury - in January, and in the months since has been candid with her fans about the challenges of parenting.
A few weeks after Bambi was born, she said in an Instagram post: “Newborn life is absolutely no joke!"
Molly-Mae also said she had been 'winging [her] way through each day', over the course of a 'super challenging' six weeks.
Now she’s opened up about the ‘struggles’ of trying to find new clothes thanks to the changes in her body after giving birth.
The star had been on a shopping spree at The Trafford Centre in Manchester, stopping off at one point for a spot of lunch.
Her next Instagram Story showed her Zara haul, which she went to try on after getting home - from the comfort of her walk-in wardrobe, no less.
But when Molly-Mae popped the garments on, she found that, annoyingly, ‘nothing fitted’.
She wrote: “Just tried everything on that I got in Zara but nothing fitted... The struggle of not knowing what size to buy after you have a baba is real.”
While the clothes weren’t right for Molly-Mae’s body - which is of course totally natural, and no doubt something many new mums will relate to - she did manage to grab something nice for Bambi.
Posting a short clip, she said: “Not my little grown up girl in her Zara tracksuit.”
Recently, Molly-Mae thanked followers for their ‘endless love and support’ in a brand new YouTube video titled ‘The Truth’.
In the clip, she spoke about how she’d been desperate to get back into making vlogs on the platform, but felt like her ‘jumbled’ brain meant nothing seemed to be making any sense.
“I just feel like there is so much to say and there is so much to discuss and talk about, that I feel like I literally don’t even know where to start,” Molly-Mae began.
She said she had been struggling to film the video two hours, having originally planned to do a 30-40 minute Q&A for fans.
“I don’t feel like I’m being myself,” she explained, before going on: “I feel like I’m questioning everything I’m saying, I’m thinking, ‘Oh my God, what are people going to think if I say that?’ because I’m trying to be so transparent and so real about the last two months of my life - but I’m also really scared to do that.”
Fighting back tears, she continued: “I’ve just been trying to talk, and nothing is coming out, I feel like what I’m saying isn’t making sense and my brain is jumbled and my brain just is not my brain anymore. And I just don’t feel myself, you know?
“And it’s not like I need more time to come back, because I do feel ready to come back. And I want more than anything to come back to YouTube - it's what I want more than anything, I want to bring you guys along this life with me so much.”
Molly-Mae wondered if she had maybe ‘left it too long’ as by the time she came to vlog she had so much to fill people in on that she didn’t know where to begin.
“I just feel overwhelmed,” she said, having a little cry to the camera.
Despite the challenges, Molly-Mae said she did feel parenting had come easily to her.
“I don’t want to sound big-headed, but I think I’m a really good mum,” she said as she began to respond to questions.
“And I think it has come so naturally to me to become Bambi’s mum - I am good at it and I’m proud of the mum I am to her.”
