Molly-Mae appears to hit out at Traveller school traditions for daughter Bambi in new Fury documentary

Molly-Mae appears to hit out at Traveller school traditions for daughter Bambi in new Fury documentary

Molly-Mae Hague shares a baby with boxer Tommy Fury, who is part Irish Traveller

Molly-Mae Hague gave her thoughts on Traveller schooling traditions before becoming a mum earlier this year.

The Love Island star has a different background than her fiancé, Tommy Fury, when it comes to approaching parenting.

The pair of 24-year-olds feature in new Netflix docu-series At Home with the Furys, which follows Tyson Fury after his 'retirement' from boxing.

The series was filmed before Molly gave birth to her daughter Bambi and sees them announcing the pregnancy to the Fury family.

Talks eventually turned to their child’s upbringing, with Tommy admitting he’d love to have 10 children in total, while his partner would rather have a ‘maximum’ of three.

The boxer, set to fight KSI in October, explains to the camera: “Growing up the way I’ve grown up, I’ve got my morals.

“I live my life a certain way. And I feel like when our little girl comes along, she’ll most definitely be brought up the way I’ve been brought up – the old fashioned way, the right way.”

Tommy’s half-brother Tyson is from an Irish Traveller background and prides himself as ‘The Gypsy King’.

He and wife Paris share six kids together and they all follow the Traveller tradition of leaving school at the age of 11 – something Tommy is apparently keen on following with his children.

But Molly points out their baby ‘is only going to have one quarter Traveller blood running through their veins’.

She appears to hit out at the schooling traditions in the community as she says: “With Tommy obviously being Traveller, he has had conversations with me about our child not going to school, which is absolutely non-optional.

“I’ve been raised completely differently to that. It would never be a question that our children or child would not go to school.

“But hopefully it won’t cause too many rifts.”

Later in the series, the YouTuber sits down with Paris to talk about being a mum within a Traveller family.

Molly says: “We were speaking about schooling, and for him, I think he just probably wouldn’t have her going to school.

“He literally thinks that the minute she’s born, he’s just gonna put her in his bag, and he’s just gonna take her round everywhere with him.

“But yeah, I think we need to sort of work out a way that I’m happy, he’s happy, the families are happy, and the baby’s happy, essentially.

“But with school and stuff, I said I would preferably prefer her to go to school because that’s the way I was raised.”

She added that the tradition isn’t something she disagrees with, ‘it’s just very different to what I know'.
