Molly-Mae recently delighted fans the world over by announcing that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tommy Fury.
The Love Island alumni, 23, has now revealed that it's not been the easiest of pregnancy journeys and explained that she was 'crying five times a day'.
Keeping it real in a new YouTube video, the influencer said that it's been 'emotionally hard' and she and her boyfriend of three-years have had to face unexpected uncertainty.
Molly-Mae said: "We were going through a really tricky time with Tommy and his work and fights happening, then not happening, and situations being completely out of our control.
"I was in the most emotionally hardest period of my life, whilst trying to also support Tommy, and it was just a very crazy few months."
Molly-Mae is most likely referring to the fact that her boxer boyfriend was meant to take on YouTuber Jake Paul last month, but the fight was called off when he was prevented from entering the US.
She said of her pregnancy hormones: "I literally just can't explain how the shock literally overtook my body for the first month, 100 percent.
"I just felt like every single day I was living an out-of-body experience, my emotions were something I'd never experienced before.
"I cried maybe five times a day for no reason, just in tears over everything."
She added: "Every time we talk about it, it feels like we're talking about a situation that's not our own because it was a complete shock, I can't lie."
The Pretty Little Thing Creative Director said that she did not plan to announce her pregnancy until she was 21 weeks gone, which, if she did, will mean she is due to give birth in the next three months.
"When I announce, I'm going to have three months left, three months, I'm not going to be giving specific dates, I'm going to keep those to myself," she explained.
As well as struggling with her mental health, Molly-Mae admits that she's had to get to grips with her body changing throughout pregnancy too.
On YouTube, she revealed that she'd already gained a stone by the time she was 13 weeks pregnant - something she claims shocked her midwife.
"I am really struggling with my body at the minute. I knew that was going to be the thing that I struggled with the most out of this whole entire journey," she admitted.
"I've always been quite self conscious of my body. I've never been that girl that is excited to put on a bikini for a holiday.
"I’ve always struggled with body confidence so I knew his part of my journey, watching my body change - which it has so much already, which is absolutely fine and it’s amazing and it's meant to be changing - but I knew it was going to be hard for me."
