When it comes to Love Island, some find love and others find fame—but in the case of Molly-Mae Hague, she found both. The influencer turned creative director is arguably the most successful Love Islander ever—and following her baby announcement, we now know that she and boyfriend Tommy Fury are having a baby girl! Here’s everything you need to know about the mum-to-be, Molly-Mae Hague.
For those who missed Love Island season five, Molly entered as a bombshell—and while she did already have an online following ahead of entering the villa, by the time she left, her fame had skyrocketed. To really drive that point home, she now has over 6.4 million Insta followers...
Since the villa, she’s landed brand deal after brand deal, been named as Pretty Little Thing’s creative director bought a house (more accurately a mansion) with boyfriend Tommy Fury and has just announced that another Love Island baby is on the way!
Yep, Molly and Tommy (who are one of the few Love Island couples still together) are having a baby and that’s not even the half of it—so if you’re a mega Molly-Mae fan or want to catch up with her life post-Love Island—here’s everything you need to know…
Who is Molly-Mae and what is her job?
Molly-Mae is an influencer who starred in season five of Love Island and bagged second place with her boyfriend, Tommy Fury. Since then, the pair have seen a whole lot of success—with Tommy resuming his boxing career and Molly taking the fashion and beauty world by storm.
Currently, Molly-Mae has quite a few jobs—she’s both an Instagram influencer and YouTuber, a business owner (having founded her own fake tan company Filter) and is PLT’s (Pretty Little Thing) Creative Director.
With PLT, Molly releases clothing collections, where she also models the clothes—meaning she’s often flying to different locations for photoshoots. Often, Molly also ‘vlogs’ these trips for her YouTube followers.
Alongside Molly-Mae’s PLT role, she also has a number of brand deals including one with BeautyWorks—where she has brought out her very own hair products and tools.
They announced the news with a joint video on Instagram, showing their Love Island speeches to each other ahead of the final (where they came second). Molly tells Tommy that she can't wait for their next 'adventures' before the video then cuts to the present day, with both Tommy and Molly holding her baby bump. *Our hearts!*
There's no word yet on their baby's due date or gender but no doubt Molly will be updating her followers very soon, likely with a vlog—so keep your eyes peeled!
After sharing her first pregnancy vlog—where Molly revealed that she was around six months pregnant—she finally announced the gender of their baby in the cutest video you'll see all day...
Popping a gender reveal balloon together, Tommy and Molly shared that they were having a baby girl, as pink confetti rained down over them—cute!
As far as marriage goes, wedding bells could also be on the horizon for these two after Tommy responded to a fan in May 2022, during a Q&A who asked: "When is Molly getting that ring...I think it's time."
To which the boxer replied: "It was probably time about six months ago but it's coming very soon."—Eeek!

Molly Mae and Tommy Fury's relationship
In regards to Molly and Tommy’s relationship, the pair couldn’t be stronger. They’ve now been an item for over three years, having moved in together almost immediately after leaving the villa.
The pair are very open about their relationship, with Molly updating followers on their life together in her Insta stories and YouTube vlogs—with Tommy often making cameos in her videos. Earlier this year, they revealed that they have bought a house in Manchester together, which they are currently renovating, as well as adopting two cats, Egg and Bread.
But now, Molly and Tommy have updated fans with an even more exciting relationship development...they're having a baby!
Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury's Love Island appearance
For those who need a little recap, the couple met on season five of Love Island after Molly-Mae entered as a bombshell.
After Molly invited him on a first date to the Hideaway hot tub, Tommy was pretty much smitten with her—although Maura Higgins soon arrived to try and turn his head (funnily enough Molly and Maura are now best friends IRL).
It was during Maura’s flirtation with Tommy that one of the best Love Island memes was born, where Molly was spying on them through a fern.
After a few tense days, Tommy decided to stick with Molly and then, of course, came Casa Amor…
In one of the most emosh and dramatic Love Island recouplings ever, both Tommy and Molly stayed loyal—with Tommy holding Molly’s cuddly toy EllyBelly while he anxiously waited at the firepit. When she re-entered the villa to find that he was also alone, Molly broke down into tears before hurrying to hug and kiss him.
Though that wasn’t the end of their rollercoaster journey quit yet—as Lucie Donlan then revealed that she liked Tommy too despite telling Molly that they were just friends. Tommy however told her he was only interested in Molly and would be distancing himself from her.
It was smooth sailing after that, with Molly and Tommy finishing in second place behind Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea.
Molly-Mae's Instagram and YouTube
Along with her other ventures, Molly has a massive online platform, with 6.4 million Insta followers and 1.66 million YouTube subscribers. She’s also recently started a new Instagram for her home renovation called @mollymaison.

Molly-Mae's beauty ventures
Molly-Mae’s area of expertise is beauty and fashion, with the influencer sharing sponsored posts collabing with beauty brands as well as sharing makeup tutorials on her socials. She even has her own fake tan company and beauty tool collection.
Molly-Mae's fake tan company
Molly-Mae owns a fake-tan company called Filter (opens in new tab) which sells tanning drops, mousse, tanning mitts and even dressing gowns.
The tanning formulas claim to be naturally streak-free and act like a ‘real-life filter’ for all skin tones. So far you can shop the brand directly from the website and from a number of brands—including ASOS.

The Filter tanning mouse comes in three shades and is lightweight and packed with ultra-hydrating ingredients like aloe and green tea antioxidant.

Molly-Mae's plastic surgery
Since leaving the villa, Molly-Mae has also started using her platform to document her journey with filler. The influencer became the target of online trolling after a photo of her jaw and lip filler went viral—which she now describes as a turning point.
Speaking on the Diary of a CEO podcast, Molly revealed that this was a big turning point for her, “I wouldn’t say I got addicted to it, but by the age of 21, I didn’t look like the same person. I literally looked like a different person. When I look back at the pictures now, I’m terrified of myself. I’m like, 'Who was that girl?' I don’t know what happened.
"But there was this one pivotal moment where I’d gone and got loads of filler and I posted a YouTube video and I hadn’t let the filler settle and it was really swollen and a screenshot from that video, it trended on Twitter for weeks. It was horrendous. It was utterly horrendous. My face was literally like, it was just awful. That was the moment for me as well where I was like, I think things need to change.”
Molly-Mae's lip and face are now filler-free, as the star got candid about wanting to get it all removed (even her dental composite bonding) and embrace her natural face.
Though in her latest 'Glow Up' vlog, Molly did reveal that she may get her composite bonds redone after detailing how her composite edging keeps chipping.
Molly-Mae's house ‘Molly Maison’
The latest development in Molly’s life is that she and Tommy recently bought their dream house in Manchester. The couple and their cats—Egg and Bread—are now all moved in and have started their renovations on their seriously glamorous home.
Though Molly has opened up about the process being much harder than she thought it would be. She has also pleaded with fans to respect her privacy, after having a number of fans driving to her home to meet her and take selfies.
If you want to keep up with all her home-reno updates you can catch vlogs on her YouTube and news on her ‘Molly-Maison’ account.
