Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have been together for well over a year now, which is pretty much an eternity in reality TV time. The Islanders became official just weeks after their first villa date and moved in together a month after landing back in the UK. While they weren't crowned the winners of their series, they'll always be the true champs in our eyes. To see why, just check out some of their cutest couple moments...

23rd February 2021: While Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury have been living together pretty much since the end of the series, more recently the pair have been looking to buy their first home together. After lots of searching, it sounded like they'd finally found somewhere they could see themselves move into, but Molly-Mae got cold feet at the last minute.

She posted on Instagram explaining what happened, telling her followers: "We went to see the house again after we put the offer in, and I was like, 'I don't like it'.

"We were driving past the house and I got out the car and went to look in through the windows because we were all excited about it.

"And then I just had this epiphany and was like, 'Tommy, I just don't see us living in this house. I don't see us in that kitchen cooking dinner, it doesn't feel right.'"

No doubt they'll find their dream house soon.

Here's the rest of Tommy and Molly-Mae's relationship timeline...

June 2019: Love Island bombshell Tommy enters the villa alongside Curtis Pritchard and first has eyes for Lucie Donlan. But that all changes when influencer Molly arrives in the villa.

July 8, 2019: Tommy officially asks Molly to be his girlfriend and does it in the cutest/cringiest (whichever way you prefer looking at it) way ever. Enlisting the help of Molly's beloved teddy Ellie Belly, the boxer wrote a note to her from the stuffed teddy.

"Dear Mummy. Daddy left me here in his best interests," it began. "He wanted me to tell you that you’re his everything. I’m going to leave it with Daddy. So…"

As the rest of the contestants watched on, Tommy asked: "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?"

July 29, 2019: In the Love Island finale, Tommy and Molly-Mae come second to Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea despite being together for over 50 days and never ending up in the bottom two.

August 2019: Fans question if the pair have already split after noticing neither of them have posted anything on social media, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

September 2019: A month after arriving back in the UK, the pair move in together. Tommy later tells Cosmopolitan UK:

"Living together is going really good. You know, the biggest thing about moving in together is trust, and in a relationship you have to be honest with each other. Since day one, me and Molly have been real with each other. We've always been really honest with each other. I think that's why we work really well inside the villa and outside the villa. Inside the villa, off-camera - we've never had an argument. We've never had an argument, and we've never said a cross word. So everything has just fallen into place at the right time. Me and Molly have always been really real together."

October 15, 2019: The couple reveal they can't wait to have kids together. Molly posts a Q&A video to her YouTube channel with Tommy and one of the questions the ex-Islanders are asked is if they want children. Molly answers the question first, saying, "We both definitely want children, yes, but obviously we're both only 20 years old."

However, Tommy chipped in and said, "We've been trying to make children most nights." He continued, joking that "I want kids by the time I'm 22, simple as that. She wants six kids, I want eight."

May 18, 2020: 10 months after the show finished, Molly-Mae finally answers whether the pair 'did bits' in the villa. The influencer hosted another Q&A with fans on YouTube and opened up about her time in Spain last summer. Fans sent their 'presumption' questions to Molly-Mae's sister Zoe, who then directed the questions to the Love Island star via FaceTime. One curious fan asked: "You and Tommy had sex in the Love Island villa?"

A flustered Molly-Mae fired back at her sister, "Why did you ask that so quickly?" before confirming, "Um, yeah. Yes we did. Next question."

May 25, 2020: Molly celebrates her 21st birthday and Tommy pulls out all the stops despite being in lockdown due to coronavirus. Sharing videos and pictures on her Instagram Stories, Molly-Mae shows off the ceiling covered in a sea of silver and purple balloons. Next up was a cute collage of at least 100 pictures of them together with a red ribbon wrapped around it. "I love you so much @TommyFury," she wrote. "What did I do to deserve you."

June 15, 2020: Molly tells fans she's ready for a "new beginning" as she and Tommy move into their stunning new home following the death of their Pomeranian puppy Mr Chai.

"I don’t want to dwell on the last couple of weeks but what I do want to say is thank you. Thank you to every single person who has sent me such thoughtful messages asking me how I am and making sure I’m okay, it has meant the world to me. I’ve enjoyed a much needed break from my phone but I’m back now and ready to get stuck into some really exciting things I have coming up."

November 3, 2020: Molly-Mae has opened up about having kids with Tommy in a new YouTube video shared with fans. In the video, titled 'Assumptions Part 2', the influencer revealed that Tommy is ready to have kids right away, but she wants to wait until the timing is right."We'll do a baby question, because it wouldn't be an assumptions video without a baby question. That's like the other 30 per cent of the questions that I get. 'You want a baby within the next two years'," she shared.

"I just feel like when the time is right, we will know. Honestly, if it was up to Tommy, we would have a baby today, tomorrow and the next day. He wants so many kids."I definitely, definitely want kids soon, but not soon soon. I always feel like a broken record with the whole kids thing because I always talk about it."

She added, "I don't mind having a child out of wedlock – it doesn't matter to me. We're just so happy and we're so, so excited for the day that it does happen because we just can't wait."

I know Tommy will be the most incredible dad. It literally makes my heart fill up when I think of Tommy holding our child. It's just so exciting. But I am so young and I never wanted to think about having babies before I was, like, 28. But when you meet the right person it just kind of feels right. But not yet!"

You guys are so cute!

7th January 2021: Molly-Mae and Tommy are celebrating their 18th month anniversary. Yes, that's apparently a thing for these two lovebirds. Molly posted a series of videos to her Instagram Stories showing hundreds of red rose petals lining the floor to their dining room, where a huge bouquet was waiting for her.

"We always try and do something special on the 7th," she wrote, while Tommy posted a throwback snap of them and added, "Every minute is a blessing with you. Happy 1 year 6 months soulmate."

Happy anniversary, guys!

14th February 2021: The pair basically win Valentine's Day. Molly shared a number of stories on Instagram with her 5.1million followers, revealing the home cinema set up Tommy had prepared. There was a projector, a popcorn and pick 'n' mix station, a fruit platter and cushions scattered all over the floor.

Tommy also had his love letter from the Love Island finale written out in calligraphy, had scattered rose petals all over the floor, and essentially just created an incredible at-home date night vibe.

"You deserve the world," Tommy wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of Molly sat in the at-home cinema, with a fire roaring on the big screen. Molly commented, "Best Valentine’s ever ❤️."

These two are too much.
