Molly Mae Hague has opened up about the struggles she has faced with her changing body during her pregnancy.
The former Love Island star, 23, had waited until she was five months pregnant before announcing the news.
It’ll be the first baby for her and boxer Tommy, 23, who met on the reality dating show, after the couple revealed they were always excited to start a family together.
Molly Mae shared a YouTube video, filmed at 13 weeks pregnant, in which she revealed how her body has changed since finding out she is pregnant.
The influencer told her followers that she had put on a stone in the first trimester, joking: ‘I’ve already told my midwife how much weight I had put on already and she was like “that’s not normal”. But the hunger has definitely been my main symptom.’
She added that the main giveaway that she was pregnant was her breasts getting bigger, adding: ‘The biggest giveaway right now is my gigantic, gigantic boobs. Oh my gosh!
‘I’ve never had more questions about a boob job in my entire life. They are huge, they are literally huge.
‘I’ve no idea what I’m going to do when I actually give birth because they double in size then and mine have already tripled in size. I had to go and get all new crop tops, all new bras the other day – hilarious.’
While Molly Mae acknowledged that body changes in pregnancy are completely normal and to be expected, she admitted it was difficult for her to process.
She explained: ‘I am really, really struggling with my body at the minute. I knew that was going to be the thing that I struggle with the most out of this whole entire journey.
‘Like, even if I was to be sick or to be poorly, or to have issues, I just knew that over everything, mentally, a struggle for me would be like, well, it would be a mental struggle but it’s a physical thing that’s happening that I mentally struggle with – just seeing the changes to my body.’
Molly Mae, who revealed she has not suffered with morning sickness during her pregnancy, admitted that she has always struggled with her body confidence.
She revealed: ‘I’ve always struggled with my body a bit. I’ve always been quite self-conscious of my body. I’ve never really been that girl who is excited to put on a bikini for a holiday. I don’t like summer and spring because I don’t like wearing revealing clothes and I don’t like getting my skin on show.
‘I’ve always struggled with body confidence so I knew his part of my journey, watching my body change – which it has so much already, which is absolutely fine and it’s amazing and it’s meant to be changing – but I knew it was going to be hard for me.’
The PrettyLittleThing creative director also revealed that her baby is due in three months’ time after sharing her announcement, adding that she and Tommy are aware of the gender but are keeping it a secret for now.
