Paris, who is rumoured to be pregnant with her seventh child, and Tyson are also parents to Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson Fury II, five, Prince Adonis Amaziah, two, Valencia Amber, four, and Athena, who was born in August 2021.

She recently revealed that the couple had taken their eldest out of school, explaining to Fabulous Magazine:

‘We finish school at primary age, which is the traditional traveller way. We’ve just brought the tradition into the 21st century.’

‘Venezuela wanted to leave school and all her (traveller) friends were leaving.’

Paris added that her daughter will continue with her education, explaining: ‘Her tutor is gonna keep her up to date with all of her tests. She will also be having piano lessons.’

Both Tyson and Paris were brought up with a traditional gypsy lifestyle, leaving school at 11 without any qualifications. 

Tyson’s 2020 ITV’s documentary, Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King showed the couple, who live in Morecambe, Lancashire, arguing over whether their children should stay in school.

While Paris said she wants her children to be raised as she did, her husband describes parents who stop their children from going to school as ‘dream killers’.

‘Tyson wants the boys to go into education but I don’t; it’s just not what we’ve ever done,’ Paris explained in the documentary.

‘I was brought up as a Traveller and I want my kids to be brought up as Travellers. They will probably leave school at 11 and they’ll be educated at home from then.

‘The boys will take a wife and make their family and the girls will take a husband and make their family.

‘Until they take a husband or wife they won’t be leaving the home and I wouldn’t want them to, but for definite [eldest daughter] Venezuela won’t be.

‘Tyson’s idea is they have the best of the both worlds; the upbringing of a Traveller but the education of a non-Traveller – how powerful could you be?’

Her husband responded: ‘Do you think you live a Traveller’s lifestyle? Because I don’t. I think you live like a footballers’ wife.

‘You said it’s not something we have ever done. But I am a precedent setter am I not? Now I’ve set these laws and precedents you watch how many will follow. Watch!

‘The parents of these kids I call them dream killers. Because [they say] ‘Oh, you never get anywhere because you’re a traveller or because they don’t want you to do it.’

Both Tyson and Paris were born into Irish traveller families – Tyson in the Wythenshawe area of Manchester and Paris in Doncaster. 

They met at a wedding at the age of 15 and started dating soon after her 16th birthday party. 

Neither of them attended school beyond the age of 11, with Fury joining his father John, who named him after boxing legend Mike Tyson, in the tarmacking business, and Mrs Fury training to be a beautician.
