Tommy Fury has shared some rare insight into fatherhood nine months on from his daughter's birth.

Tommy shares Bambi with wife-to-be Molly-Mae Hague, whom he met on Love Island in 2019.

The adorable tot was born in January just two weeks before Tommy's then-highly anticipated boxing match against his rival Jake Paul.

Tommy went on to prove victorious against the YouTuber, and recently beat yet another social media star, KSI, in the ring.

Tommy won by unanimous decision on Saturday, 14 October.

It was evident that his pre-fight hard work paid off, but it didn't come without its difficulties - especially as he had to be away from baby Bambi for a long period of time.

Speaking to Tyla about being apart from his young daughter, Tommy said: "It was very, very tough [being away from Bambi].

"Obviously, with the Jake Paul fight, she was born two weeks before and [she was only young] as all that was going on.

"Now that she's older, she's getting a personality and you get more and more attached by the day."

Tommy continued: "It was hard to rip myself away from this training camp but, at the end of the day, sacrifices need to be made."

The 24-year-old also spoke about if Bambi will ever come to his future boxing matches when she's older.

"I don't think Bambi will ever come to one of my fights," he shared.

"I don't really think it's a place for a boxer's own kids.

"Maybe when she's a lot older and if I'm still boxing she can come and see what her dad does, but it's not something I'm really concerned about at the minute."

Elsewhere, he addressed if fiancée Molly-Mae will return ringside after she felt she 'embarrassed' herself at the fight earlier this month.

She said in a video posted to her YouTube channel: “I’ll be honest though, it's probably the last time I will ever go to a fight - I say that - it won't be because I will drag myself there like I did with this one!"

Molly-Mae added: “I more than anything slightly embarrassed myself as Tommy's support system at the fight because honestly my head was on the ground the whole entire fight.

“I physically could not lift up my chin to look at the ring and watch the fight. I don't know what happens to me in those situations."

With her comments in mind, Tommy told us that he doesn't know if his wife-to-be will have the 'nerve' to go again.

"Having her there is amazing," he said.

"I'm in that zone and I don't see anyone else outside of the ring when I'm fighting so, it is what it is.

"She knows how happy it makes me and that's the reason why she tolerates it.

"We'll see if she's got the nerve to come again; I don't know."
