MOLLY-MAE Hague wants to delay having children with Tommy Fury to “capitalise” on opportunities she has now.
The Love Island star recently came under fire for boasting about her work ethic and saying she’d rather make money than friends.
Speaking on her YouTube channel last year, before her recent comments went viral, Molly, 22, shared: “I’ll be completely honest, sometimes I get really excited by the idea and I think I want to have kids NOW.
“But it takes my manager Fran to make me realise these next couple of years of my life are the most important years for me, to capitalise on and work as hard as I can work to set myself up for life.
“There’s plenty of time to have babies and start a family.”
She previously insisted she would be married to Tommy by the time she’s 26, whilst he claimed he is already trying to get Molly pregnant and wants eight children.
He said last year: “Yes we have, we’ve been snoodling in the bedroom, I want twins by the time I’m 22, simple as that. Molly wants six kids, I want eight.”
Molly also told fans she’s not on any contraception currently – but said it wasn’t a deliberate move to fall pregnant.
She said: “I went on the pill a few weeks ago for the first time. I found it so hard to find a good time each day to take the pill. I started taking it and no, it’s not for me.
Molly made headlines last week about her work ethic in a controversial appearance on Dragons’ Den star Steven Bartlett’s Diary of a CEO podcast.

The businesswoman is thought to be worth around £2million.
She has been branded “tone deaf” by some after comments on the podcast last month, in which she said: “You’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.
“When I’ve spoken about that in the past I have been slammed a little bit, with people saying ‘it’s easy for you to say that because you’ve not grown up in poverty, so for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.’
“But, technically, what I’m saying is correct. We do,” the TV personality continued.
“So I understand that we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations, but I do think if you want something enough, you can achieve it.
“It just depends to what lengths you want to go to get where you want to be in the future. And I’ll go to any lengths.
“I’ve worked my absolute a**e off to get where I am now,” she concluded.
In light of Molly’s comments resurfacing online, many took to social media to air their grievances with her grafting sentiments, pointing out that she went on one of the UK’s biggest reality shows and had endorsement deals waiting for her.
One tweeted: “She literally just went on a TV dating show and got brand deals, I’m not sure she ‘worked here a**e off'”.
“So funny that people have gassed her up so much that she feels comfortable to be able to say this,” another remarked. “She’s always been well off and for her to say this is so tone deaf.”
A third shared: “Ngl I like Molly Mae but if you’ve never been in poverty you’ll never know how hard getting out of poverty is, it’s an endless cycle.
“Yes life is what you make of it but it also helps when you don’t need to stress about what you or your family are having for dinner.”
