Molly-Mae Hague has shared that she's been struggling to cope with the way her body is changing during her pregnancy.
The influencer and reality star had fans in floods of tears last month when she and her partner Tommy Fury announced that they were expecting their first baby together.
The couple, who have been together since they first met on ITV's Love Island back in 2019, have been documenting every step of their parenting journey. But it sounds like some moments have been more difficult than others.
Molly-Mae, 23, and Tommy, 23, waited until five months into the pregnancy to share the news with followers. But, now that it's all out in the open, Molly-Mae has been able to share some earlier moments from her pregnancy to her YouTube channel.
In the new vlog, which was filmed when the reality star was 13 weeks pregnant, Molly revealed that she had been having a hard time with her changing body.
Speaking to the camera on her bathroom floor, she revealed that she had put on one stone in her first trimester.
She joked: "I’ve already told my midwife how much weight I had put on already and she was like 'that’s not normal'."
The mum-to-be added that the biggest giveaway that she's pregnant has been her 'gigantic' boobs.
"I've never had more questions about a boob job in my entire life. They are huge," she laughed.
"I have no idea what I'm going to do when I actually give birth because they double in size then, and mine have already tripled in size."
Molly Mae gave another update at 17 weeks, and spoke candidly about her trouble accepting her changing body.
"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 don’t like summer and spring because I don’t like wearing revealing clothes and I don’t like getting my skin on show.
"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."
Elsewhere in the vlog, Molly-Mae revealed that she and Tommy already knew the gender of their baby, but are planning to keep it a secret for the time being.
In a recent Q&A session with her Instagram followers, Molly shared that she and Tommy also have a name in mind for their baby which, she says, they had 'picked out from basically the day we met'.
