WHILE many first-time mums turn to educational books or social forums for advice, pregnant Molly-Mae Hague will likely turn to someone a little closer to home.
In September, the former Love Island star revealed that she’s expecting her first child with beau Tommy Fury, 23 – three years after they met on the fifth season of the hit ITV2 reality show.Molly-Mae will likely be turning to her future sister-in-law Paris Fury for parenting advice[/caption] Molly-Mae enjoying a holiday with beau Tommy in Dubai as she turns 7 months pregnant[/caption]
And it’s likely the 23-year-old fashion director, who is currently seven months pregnant with a baby girl, will be asking for parenting tips from her future sister-in-law Paris Fury, who is a mum-of-six.
Paris and her former heavyweight champion Tyson were quick to congratulate the young couple on their news, with the relatable mum calling it “the best news ever” as she re-shared their adorable video post.
Here, Fabulous takes a look at the tips and traveller traditions that Paris swears by when it comes to raising her big brood – from homeschooling to the trick she uses to help get her kids organised in the mornings…
Being married to Tyson Fury, who is worth an estimated £26million, means that Paris Fury could likely live wherever she desires.Paris and Tyson Fury have stayed put in Morecambe to ensure their kids have a “normal life”[/caption] Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury live in a lavish Cheshire mansion[/caption]
But the glamorous mum and her husband have stayed put in the Lancashire seaside resort Morecambe, which they made their permanent home in 2011, to ensure their kids have a “normal life.”
The couple share six children – Venezuela, 12, Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and baby Athena, who was born prematurely last August.
And with Molly-Mae, who currently lives in Cheshire with Tommy, rising to fame since her appearance on Love Island, it’s likely she’ll be following in Paris’ footsteps and doing all she can to ensure her daughter stays grounded.

Appearing on Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe’s podcast, Parenting Hell in November, Paris, who lives, who lives in a £550k house, explained: “The other thing that is difficult is just to live a normal life.
“For us to live in Morecambe, which is where we’re at at the minute, and that’s easy because everybody has known us for years here.
“So we’re not nothing special. We’re not like, ‘oh wow here’s Tyson and Paris, here’s the kids, here’s oh my goodness’ it’s just normal.
“And yeah people say hello and they get a picture but that’s it. It’s not like a big ordeal.

“But when we go to towns, cities, zoos, fairgrounds, anything, there is no normal life. There is no normality.”
And Tyson has made no secret of the fact that he has no desire to move either…

Speaking in his three-part ITV documentary series, the ‘Gypsy King,’ explained: “People say to me, ‘Why don’t you live in California or America?’ Why would I?
“Why would I abandon my own country for a bit of money and some fame?
“I love it. I would never leave Morecambe. It’s true beauty. If the weather was better, every house here would be a million quid.”
In February, the heavyweight champion took to Instagram and posted a snap of himself in Morecambe Bay with a heartfelt caption where he noted how he’s “never forgotten” his roots.
In the post, he penned: “King of the world – but never forgot where I come from.
“Started here in Morecambe and still here. I’ve kept grounded and stayed true to myself. It’s a lonely place on top of the world.”
“Believe in yourself and follow your dreams – you never know what is possible.
“With faith anything is possible all praise be to God.”
QUICK TRICKSMum-of-six Paris lays her children’s clothes out the night before to save time[/caption]
As any parent will know, getting one child organised in the morning is challenging enough. So, just imagine the obstacles that Paris must face with six.
Thankfully, the relatable mum, who admits she’s “not a morning person,” has a very handy trick that helps her dress her children with minimal effort every morning.
And it’s definitely one for Molly-Mae to remember in a few years’ time when her little girl starts school.
Taking to Instagram, Paris posted a snap of her children’s clothes laid out the night before, so she doesn’t have to pick items in the morning.
“Life hack me mam taught me,” she penned.
“Lay the kids clothes out for early mornings.
“I’m not a morning person and my brain don’t function well before 9am so this helps.”
HOMESCHOOLINGParis took eldest daughter Venezuela out of school at the age of 11[/caption] The mum-of-six offered a sneak peak into the gift bags for her kids’ teachers[/caption]
Sticking to Traveller traditions, Paris and Tyson revealed how they took eldest daughter Venezuela out of school at the age of 11.
Speaking to Fabulous, Paris previously said: “We finish school at primary age, which is the traditional traveller way.
“We’ve just brought the tradition into the 21st century. Venezuela wanted to leave school and all her [traveller] friends were leaving.
Her tutor is gonna keep her up to date with all of her tests. She will also be having piano lessons.”
The glamorous mum also appeared on Loose Women and told of the backlash she’d received following her decision to homeschool her daughter – but insisted she’s “not taking away any chances” from her.
“It’s nothing new to us,” Paris explained. “It’s what our culture, our race of people as gypsies and travellers, have always done.
“We gave Venezuela the option – do you want to go to high school or be homeschooled?
“I had such a bad backlash, ‘you’ve took away her chances for this, her chance for that?’
“I haven’t took away her advantages because she will sit her levels and go through the full extent of schooling.
“When she is 15 and 16, if she wants to go into further learning, she can.”
Paris went on to explain that she spent three years studying how to run a beauty therapy business so she could start up her own salon.
“I’ve told my girl, she can do everything,” she continued.
“She’ll keep up to date with her studies and then when it comes to that time.
“People just look at it like ‘you’ve taken her out of school’, but that’s not the case.
“I can’t take full credit, she does have a tutor.
“Somebody comes in weekly and they do all her work, and keep her up to date with the standards she is meant to do.
“It’s going great.”
When it comes to the topic of school, another issue that parents, such as Molly-Mae, might come face is what gift to buy your child’s teacher.
Well, Paris has offered the perfect solution after revealing she’d made gift bags for her kids’ teachers when they broke up for the summer holidays.
Taking to Instagram, the Lancashire-based mum showed how the bags contained bottles of wine and other treats.
She penned: “Last day of school so teachers’ gifts ready.”
QUALITY FAMILY TIMEParis Fury took a sweet snap of her family as they sat front row to watch the WWE clash at the Castle in Cardiff[/caption]
Paris often shares images from fun family days out, revealing the close-knit bond they have.
In January, Paris and her family posted pictures as they posed in the sun over the bank holiday following Tyson’s sensational win over Dillian Whyte.
Tyson wrote: “Lovely day out with the fam. Blessed.”
The snap showed the family’s large brood adorably dressed in matching red tracksuits.
In June, Paris enjoyed another jam-packed day out with her family in Blackpool.
The mum-of-six took to her Instagram page where she documented their jam-packed day, which included a visit to Madame Tussauds, Sealife and The Blackpool Tower Dungeons.
Then in September, Paris, who was again joined by husband Tyson and their children, posted a sweet photograph as they sat front row to watch WWE Clash at the Castle in Cardiff.
TEACHING THE VALUE OF MONEYThe glam mum told how she makes her kids cringe by shopping in the sale rails[/caption]
Having children can be expensive, but according to Paris, not everything has to be designer.
Speaking to Fabulous, the glam mum told how despite making her kids “cringe,” she still sifts through the sale rail and can’t resist Poundland or Asda bargains.
“I’ve turned into my mother,” says 32-year-old Paris. “I stand and now my daughter is me cringing when I’m at the sale rail.”
“And I’m buying Asda pyjamas that are only £3. I can’t help it, it’s just me.”
She continues: “I think you do turn into your parents, but I don’t see where I would go.”
“People say: ‘Oh, you shop in Asda?’ or wherever I might go. But where else do you think I go? Here [Morcombe] there’s not many options, but I like being here. I think it’s just normal.”
“Where we came from, you know that you can’t always have everything and things are limited,” she explains.
“So when we’ve had our kids, we both said that we want to try and keep them grounded.”
“And I’m aware of this and with my kids, I’m bringing them up how I was brought up which is what people find so strange.”
And Paris is fully aware of the privileges and luxury lifestyle that comes with being married to one of the world’s most famous boxers.
“On the other hand, the kids are jumping in first class seats, we’ve got to have that sort of balance,” she continues.
“I remember we got on the aeroplane and instantly my little boy..he’s only five, hops on a seat in the first class and goes, ‘Lady could I have a Coke please.’ That’s not right. Stop!”
“I even think to myself ‘you little pampered boy.’ They automatically do do that.”
“But then on the other hand, they’ll ask me, mam, can I have £2 to go to the sweet shop? And sometimes I say ‘no,’ because they’ve been already this morning.”
“I still need to try and keep some level.”

Speaking of the moment Tyson signed a new, five-match agreement with US network ESPN in her autobiography, Love & Fury, Paris writes: “We’d both been brought up by our parents to
appreciate the value of money, and to use it wisely.”
“We saw no reason to stop shopping in Asda and Home Bargains, and
we had no immediate plans to swap our family home –
which we loved, despite the increasing lack of space – for a
