Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury's romance has continued to go from strength to strength since they left the Love Island villa in 2019
PrettyLittleThing creative director Molly, 23, and professional boxer Tommy, also 23, have proved their critics wrong and are the only couple still together from the Love Island 2019 series.
Since leaving the villa, the pair have amassed a huge fanbase and have continued to keep their followers updated on their romance, from moving in together to announcing that they're expecting their first child.
As Molly and Tommy get set to start a family together, here we take a look back at their incredible love story…
Tommy and Molly-Mae are the only couple still left together from the Love Island 2019 series.
The brother of Tyson Fury and also a fellow boxer, had been romancing Lucie Donlan in the villa before social media influencer Molly walked in as a bombshell two weeks in to the series.
From then on the pair went from strength-to-strength, with only blips in the form of Maura Higgins who tried to woo Tommy with her "fanny flutters" and a love triangle with Lucie who was sure Tommy liked her too.
It wasn't long before the L-word was shared between the couple, with Tommy making a sweet declaration to Molly-Mae and asking her to be his girlfriend in the most romantic way.
Placing a note inside her treasured stuffed animal Ellie Bellie, Tommy then made a speech to Molly on the balcony: "On a serious note, you know how much you mean to me and you’re the only girl for me.
"I only want to be with you. Therefore, I was wondering if you wanted to be my girlfriend?”
The rest, as they say, is history with the couple being firm favourites through the entire series with Amber and Greg pipping them at the post to scoop the £50k prize.
Moving in and buying a house
Luckily for Tommy and Molly-Mae the pair were both based in Manchester, so location was never a problem for them like many other Love Island couples who have struggled to keep up a long distance romance.
They swiftly moved in together to Molly's apartment in September 2019, following a whirlwind few weeks of red carpet appearances and Molly's Pretty Little Thing collection launch.
The couple rented apartments up until January 2022, when Molly excitedly announced that they had finally found their dream home to buy.
She and Tommy purchased a sprawling mansion located in an affluent neighbourhood in Cheshire, which is believed to be worth around £4m.
The couple have got to work renovating their new home and Molly has documented the entire process on her second Instagram account, @mollymaison.
Ever since Tommy and Molly-Mae left the Love Island villa they had been dogged with split rumours, and there was even speculation that the couple were in a fake relationship.
In August 2019, just one month after leaving the villa, fans became worried the pair had already called it quits after they stopped sharing pictures of each other on social media.
But at the time an insider told The Sun that the couple were focusing on their relationship away from the cameras: "They’re very very much together and haven’t split up. They’re completely obsessed with each other and that’s why they haven’t posted to social – they’re too busy concentrating on the relationship.”
During the show, the influencer and boxer also faced constant backlash from viewers that their relationship was a “showmance” and that Molly was “using” him for money.
Molly previously hit back at those accusations saying everyone was entitled to their opinion but, "We proved everybody wrong in the end, anyway."
Tommy and Molly have proven how serious they are about each other and have barely spent a day apart since meeting in 2019.
The pair have been each other’s biggest fans, with Tommy following Molly to America for her PrettyLittleThing launch, and Molly going along to Tommy’s boxing practices.
Back in February 2020 it was rumoured that Tommy was going to propose to his girlfriend, after he made a promise that if his brother Tyson won his boxing match in Las Vegas he'd get down on one knee.

But the proposal never happened and Molly-Mae said that she had put a stop to Tommy asking for her hand in marriage because he would “propose to her tomorrow” if she let him.
Aged 20, she previously insisted she wanted to “wait” a while longer because she was “too young”.
The couple were hit with engagement rumours once again in January 2022, as they jetted off on a romantic getaway to New York shortly after Christmas.
Many fans presumed Tommy had a proposal up his sleeve, as he surprised Molly with the holiday.
However, the boxer didn't pop the question and Molly was quick to shut down speculation on her social media accounts. She told her followers: "I can promise you guys he is not proposing to me. Don't act like you are Tommy because I know you're not."
In September 2022, Molly announced that she and Tommy are set to become parents for the first time.
The couple took fans by surprise as they shared a sweet video montage on Instagram of Tommy kissing Molly's growing baby bump, alongside a snippet of Molly's Love Island finale speech.
Quoting her 2019 speech, Molly-Mae captioned the post: "I can’t wait for the adventures that we haven’t even dreamed of yet”, followed by an angel emoji.
The parents-to-be were instantly inundated with sweet messages from their friends, families and fans, with their adorable pregnancy announcement racking up over one million likes in under three hours.
Molly-Mae's sister Zoe – who got engaged earlier this year – penned: "Love all 3 of you so much. You’re going to be incredible parents".
Loose Women's Stacey Solomon said: "congratulations this is amazing," with a series of crying emojis, while Molly's BFF and fellow Islander Maura Higgins wrote: "AND THERE WE GO IM CRYING AGAIN!!!!! LOVE YOU SO SO MUCH".
