Jake Paul got in trouble for revealing Molly-Mae Hague had given birth to her first child with partner Tommy Fury before the couple.
On Friday, the YouTuber-turned-boxer used social media to reveal he will fight Tyson Fury’s younger brother in Saudi Arabia on February 26.
But while taunting his rival for previously pulling out of two fights dates with him, Paul claimed Fury has no excuses now his baby daughter had been born.
He wrote: “Tommy has no excuses now…Baby’s born. Money’s massive. Immigration no issue. Tyson promises he & Papa will make Tommy retire from boxing & change his last name if he can’t beat the YouTuber. [Saturday] I’m coming to London to look at all 3 Fury’s in the eye & shake on that promise.”
Many fans suspected that Molly-Mae may had given birth beacause the usually active social media influencer hasn’t posted on Instagram in days.
Hague has now confirmed the birth of their daughter while Fury ignored his opponent’s revelation when reacting to their fight being made official.
He said: “Jake Paul’s boxing career ends on February 26th and I can finally move on with mine. Every time I go out right now, everybody asks me about the Jake Paul fight.

“After this fight is done, everybody will be asking me how it felt to knock Jake Paul out. The world is about to see what happens when a proper boxer faces a YouTuber.”
Amidst talk about his upcoming fight with Fury, Paul is facing a wave of backlash for seemingly revealing Molly and Tommy’s baby news before they got the chance to.
One social media user wrote: “Jake Paul announcing Tommy Fury & Molly Mae child’s birth before either of them could is either an unfortunate error, or a proper s***house move.”
Another added: “Not Jake Paul announcing molly mae having her baby before molly mae what a p****””
A third person said: “Imagine Jake Paul announcing that molly mae have given birth before them, what a c***.”
It wasn’t all bad though, as one Twitter user saw found it hilarious, writing: “Jake Paul being the one to announce Molly Mae’s birth is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Tommy Fury also refused to answer a direct question about whether Molly Mae had given birth.
He said: “I will be making no comment on that.”
In the end, the couple revealed their daughter had been born on 23 January, posting a picture of the three of them together on Monday night.
But that didn’t stop Paul’s digs as he claimed Fury’s daughter had been born ‘just in time to watch’ her dad being ‘knocked out.’
‘The Problem Child’ has a history of trying to get at Fury by taking shots at Molly-Mae.
In May 2021, Paul posted screenshots that claimed Fury’s partner had privately messaged him looking to meet up a year before she met her boxer boyfriend on Love Island in 2019.
It was later proven that the message was photoshopped when a fan pointed out that the emoji used in the screenshot wasn’t released until the year after the message was supposedly sent.
The rivals met in the ring on the night Artur Beterbiev beat Anthony Yarde and had to be separated and now both will be training ahead of their clash.
