Phillip Schofield Mocks Molly-Mae’s Baby Name In Cruel Swipe At Star

Love Island stars Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have just announced the name of their baby girl, and it’s adorable, but Philip Schofield doesn’t seem to think so.

In a Q&A last year, Hague said she has had the name picked out “since I was a baby girl myself” and said she’d “not seen any other girls with the name before,” which set off dozens of comments from fans, trying to guess what it could be.

Hague finally revealed her newborn’s name, along with a photo of the tot in her new room.

“Bambi,” she captioned the adorable photo, and fans were loving the Disney themed name. 

However, Schofield didn’t seem to be very impressed by the choice.

The This Morning host was discussing baby names when he made the controversial comment, which has seriously raised some eyebrows.

He commented that the name had “sparked conversation”

The sixty-year-old asked: “Should parents be thoughtful about what they name their children and what they should be called, obviously because that’s for life?

“Some social media users have helpfully pointed out that Bambi is a boy in the animated film, although neither of us even knew that,” he added.

“Is it anyone’s business what you call your baby?” Schofield continued per The Mirror, adding: “If there was a child in school called ‘Salad Bowl’?”

Fellow panelist Vanessa Feltz responded: “Then they would be known as Sally and nobody would care.”

“It could be anything. You could call your child anything you like,” Schofield snapped back.

Tom Swarbrick, who was also present for the baby name discussion, then shut him down: “People are going to judge, but people will judge about anything.”

This comes shortly after the news that Jake Paul ‘accidentally’ broke the news that Hague and Fury had welcomed their first child. 

Paul and Fury are set to battle it out in the ring in Saudi Arabia on 26 February, after months of cancellations due to visa issues and injuries. And it seems Paul has taken trash talk to a whole new level.

As fans will already be aware, Love Island’s Fury and Hague have recently welcomed their newborn daughter into the world and shared the incredible news with their 7+ million followers on Monday.

However, before they could make their announcement themselves, Paul decided to spill the news in a Tweet while also bashing his rival Fury, who he claimed had ‘no excuses now,’ in reference to their upcoming fight.

He wrote: “Baby’s born. Money’s massive. Immigration no issue.”

It seems that Paul was unaware that he had ‘leaked’ the baby news before the couple had the chance to announce it, as he told reporters: “Did I do that? I leaked it? Oh s***. My bad. I’m sorry Tommy, but don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone the gender or anything like that.”

It didn’t stop there though, as Paul went on to leave a remark on the Instagram post after Hague and Fury made their own public announcement.

“Just in time to watch your dad get knocked out,” he wrote before later deleting the comment.

And understandably, fans were furious with him, one wrote: “No matter your opinion on the whole Jake Paul and Tommy Fury situ, it’s just morally wrong to a) announce the birth of someone else’s baby and b) comment on their announcement post with such an inappropriate comment.”

While another said: “Jake Paul announcing the birth of someone else’s baby before they do seems cruel to me, I feel like he robbed them of a special moment for, what, a cheap shot?”

And a third added: “The fact that Jake Paul actually leaked that Molly Mae had her baby is so sad for her. I would have been gutted if someone had announced that I had birthed my child before I got to, especially to millions of people.”

Despite the backlash, Paul didn’t stop there. He later spoke out about Fury to reporters, saying: “Yeah. It’s a bit bizarre. Two of his biggest life moments in a very short time period here.

“I was telling my friends: I don’t know how he’s mentally going to be able to deal with that.

“If I had a kid, I wouldn’t want to be showing up at the gym, so I think it’s going to be a distraction for him.”
