After the resounding success of her family's hit Netflix docuseries, Paris Fury has voiced her concerns over her children's safety.
Netflix offered fans a unique insight into life behind closed doors of the heavyweight champion and his family with the streaming platform's At Home With The Furys, which first hit our screens last month.
The official Netflix premise for the massively popular doc reads: "Following the heavyweight champion as he exits the ring and tries to embrace retirement with his family including his wife, Paris, father, John, and his six children."
As well as focusing on Tyson and Paris' family life, who have just welcomed their seventh child, viewers can also see Love Island stars Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague before the birth of their daughter, Bambi, as the two prepared to become first-time parents.
Paris has previously voiced her worries over her family's safety following the roaring success of the Netflix programme.
In an interview with OK! Magazine, the mum-of-seven revealed: "People knowing who you are and where you live can be hard sometimes.
"I hope people will watch the show and realise we're just a normal family."
Since then, it seems the concerns worrying the pair - who share children Venezuela, 13, Prince John James, 11, Prince Tyson II, seven, Valencia, five, Prince Adonis, four, Athena, two, and a six-day-old newborn son - have not dissipated.
Paris told Fabulous magazine: "We’re taking into account at the moment that it’s made the kids famous. Often, we have to employ bodyguards if we’re together in public."
She also explained: "I frequently worry about them being kidnapped. Do we want to go down that route, because how can you live a normal life if you have a bodyguard?"
The mum went on to note: "Venezuela is starting to go places by herself. She went to the races last week and had a security team.
"She was asking why she had a bodyguard, as she found it embarrassing. I understand, but every person was pointing her out, saying, 'There’s Tyson Fury's daughter'."
Paris also added that there had been 'tension around the house the last couple of weeks' following the success of the Netflix show.
"It is hard for them," the mum admitted, "because they have got to learn to live in a world where they’re not blended in or normal.
"It is a bit unfair, but then there are a lot of worse things that could be happening. They are blessed in other ways."
At Home with the Furys is available to stream now on Netflix.
