The 22 year old, who recently showed off the condition of her natural hair after ditching the extensions, took to her Twitter account to answer a question posed by an account, which read: “When did you realise he loved you deeply?”
She immediately replied: “When he fell in love with my cuddly elephant just because of how much I loved it”.

The former Love Islander delved deeper into what the condition is like, explaining how she has frequently had to take days off work while battling the pain that often leaves her unable to “stand up” .
Detailing what the pain is like, Molly-Mae continued: “I can honestly only probably describe them as on the same level as labour.
“I don’t know, obviously I don’t know what labour feels like but they are at a point where I literally can’t stand up.”
Molly-Mae, who recently bought her hairdresser a Prada bag, added: “I’m literally screaming in pain, no painkiller will make me feel any better, I have to take days and days off work.”
“I feel like I have literally been in a car crash after I’ve been on my period – it’s just not normal.”
