Paris Fury is the wife of professional boxer Tyson Fury. The couple has been married since 2009. Paris is credited for helping her famous husband at the time when he was fighting clinical depression. In an interview, Tyson admitted that it was the thought of his wife and children that kept him from taking his own life in the summer of 2016. Since then, Paris has stayed by her husband’s side, playing a crucial role in his comeback in December 2018. Paris and Tyson are blessed with four children. In August 2018, Tyson took to his Instagram page to announce that he and his wife are expecting their fifth child and third son.
Relationship with Tyson Fury
Paris was just 15 years old when she first met Tyson Fury at the wedding of a mutual friend in London. Paris was introduced to Tyson by his aunt, who called upon Tyson to meet a ‘young lady.’ Paris later revealed in an interview that she thought his aunt was introducing her to a much older man, as Tyson, who now stands 6 feet 9 inches tall, was much taller than Paris. Since Paris herself is not short by any stretch of the imagination, she was expecting to see someone at eye level when she lifted her head. However, Tyson’s gigantic physique did not stop her from having a brief chat with him before parting ways. The two then met again after a year on Paris’ 16th birthday in Doncaster, England. Since Paris was not allowed to date anyone until her 16th birthday, Tyson became her first boyfriend when they started dating after meeting at the birthday party. Paris later revealed in an interview that she would get excited at the thought of meeting Tyson during the weekend. Weekend was all Tyson could afford as he would train during weekdays. After dating for a couple of years, Paris and Tyson decided to get married. Their wedding took place in 2009, when Paris was 18 years old.
