Molly-Mae Hague has given Tommy Fury a big welcome home after he won his highly anticipated boxing match against YouTuber Jake Paul.
After spending ages going back and forth trying to set up the fight the two men finally got into the ring in Saudi Arabia and it was Fury who emerged the winner by split decision.
He dedicated his victory to newborn daughter Bambi, declaring that 'this fight is for you' and paying tribute to 'my missus' Molly-Mae, who was watching the bout at their home.
Having only given birth a few weeks ago Molly-Mae did not travel to Saudi Arabia to watch the fight in person, instead watching all the action at home alongside sister Zoe.
At times she could scarcely bring herself to watch the action unfolding and had to be told that Tommy had won, but later posted to Instagram that there was 'never a doubt in my mind' that he was going to win.
She then posted to say she'd 'never been more proud of anyone in my life' after seeing Fury dealing with all the pressure on his shoulders in the run-up to the fight.
The fight had been postponed more than once with the original bout in December 2021 scuppered after Fury broke a rib and suffered from a bacterial infection.
Rescheduled for August 2022, the boxing match was again called off after Fury ran into visa issues, leading to taunts from Paul claiming that he was trying to duck out of the fight.
The beef between Fury and his opponent grew in the run-up to the third attempt to put the fight on as Paul leaked the news that Tommy and Molly-Mae had welcomed a baby girl into their family.
The YouTuber later apologised for leaking the news before the parents did and made a show of offering baby Bambi a gift to make up for things.
With the fight over Fury has now jetted back to the UK and received a hero's welcome from Molly-Mae, who posted another tribute to him on Instagram showing the moment he came through the door.
In her video, captioned 'MY CHAMP', she filmed Fury returning home with a champion's belt draped over his shoulder.
The pair then hugged plenty and kissed, the new parents clearly happy to be reunited after some time apart.
It's likely not going to be the last time Molly-Mae has to see Tommy step into the ring with Paul, however, as Paul suggested he was going to trigger a rematch clause in their contract and fight him again.
