Paris and Tyson Fury’s ever-expanding brood looks like it makes for a chaotic home life, as we’ve seen in the family’s hilarious recent Netflix docuseries.
A synopsis from Netflix says: “Heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury attempts to navigate retirement, his mental health and hectic family life alongside his wife Paris, brother Tommy and Molly-Mae Hague."
It seems like there’s never a dull day in the Fury household, which is home to no fewer than SIX kids – with a seventh also on the way.
The couple confirmed Paris was pregnant with another child earlier this year, with Tyson saying on Instagram: "All is not lost! I get to date night with my beautiful pregnant wife @ParisFury1.
"God is great! Seventh baby incoming, fantastic news to cheer me up."
Paris also posted the same pic to her profile, writing: "Baby NO 7 on the way God willing."
No doubt the pair are already dreaming up potential names for their seventh child, who'll have a tough act to follow if they want to fit in with their glamorously-named siblings.
Something tells us they won’t just be going for something like ‘Jack’ or ‘Sarah’...
That’s because three of their sons are called Prince, while their eldest is named after a country in South America.
Venezuela was the couple’s first child, born in 2009, who was followed by Prince John James, born in 2011.
Then came Prince Tyson II (also known as 'Tutty’), born in 2016, daughter Valencia, born in 2017, and Prince Adonis Amaziah, born in 2019.
The youngest Fury child is Athena, who was born on 8 August 2021.
Speaking about the decision behind his daughter’s name back in 2011, Tyson told the Guardian: “One night, while I was sleeping, I thought of Venezuela. My wife is called Paris. I’m Tyson and [gesturing to his son] he’s called Prince John James.
“If the girl had a normal name it wouldn’t fit in, would it? I wanted to call the boy Patrick but the wife didn’t want it.”
As for why several of his kids are also called Prince, he explained in his 2020 documentary: “I'm a king and they're princes until they earn their rightful name.”
