After their last fight, he belted out American Pie to his adoring wife – but what do we know about Paris Fury?

Who is Paris?

Tyson met Paris around 16 years ago at a wedding of mutual friends when she was just 15.

Like Tyson, who grew up in a gypsy family in Wythenshawe, Manchester, she was also raised in a traditional traveller family in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

The pair met again by chance at Paris’s 16th birthday party and took up together, going to the cinema and ice skating every weekend.

He is 6ft 9ins and she is 5ft 8ins.

The heavyweight superstar has likened boxing to marriage.

He said: “Boxing is like a marriage – you have to work at it. You do fall in and out of love.

“But I have spiced it back up again, bought her some sexy lingerie and we are back at it, better than ever.”

Paris, 31, has been a regular panellist on ITV’s Loose Women.

What was their wedding like?

The couple had a traditional wedding in front of more than 300 guests in Paris’ home town in November 2008.

In keeping with the travellers’ tradition they didn’t sleep together until their wedding night.

Paris explained: “Even after we got engaged, Tyson would sleep in a caravan at my parents’ home, while I slept inside the house.”

How many children do the couple have?

The couple have six, after welcoming the latest to their brood on August 8, 2021.

They have welcomed a girl called Athena, who follows their third son Prince Adonis Amaziah.

He came along just over a year after their fourth child, Valencia Amber.

They are also parents to three other children – Prince John James, Venezuela and Prince Tyson Fury II.

She told Tyson she was pregnant with Prince John James less than 24 hours before his famous world ­heavyweight boxing ­championship victory against Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

Paris revealed she suffered a miscarriage on the day of the Gypsy King’s comeback fight against Albanian Sefer Seferi. 

But she did not let him know until after the bout.

She said: “I was about eight weeks pregnant. Then on the day of the fight I knew I’d lost our baby.

“I didn’t mention it to Tyson before he went in the ring.

“Then straight after I told him and the next day we went to the hospital and it was confirmed.

“Five weeks later we fell pregnant again.”
