Tyson and Paris Fury explain reason behind son’s adorable ‘Tutty’ nickname

Paris Fury has explained the meaning behind her son's adorable nickname.

Paris and her husband, boxing champ Tyson, have shared a glimpse inside life at their £1.7m Morecambe mansion in a new Netflix documentary series titled At Home With The Furys.

The nine-part documentary, which debuted this week, follows Tyson's transition from the boxing ring to embracing retirement while focusing on his family.

The couple are proud parents to their three sons Prince John James, ten, Prince Tyson Fury II, six, and Prince Adonis Amaziah, four, and three daughters; Venezuela, 13, Valencia Amber, five, and Athena, two.

Paris is currently expecting the couple’s seventh child.

Viewers have quickly embraced the show, finding it both entertaining and heartwarming.

However, they were left scratching their heads when, throughout the first episode, Paris and Tyson referred to their son, Tyson, as 'Tutty'.

In the second episode of the show, which debuted this week, Paris explained the reason behind his unusual nickname.

As they celebrated the six year old's birthday, 33 year old Paris said: "Baby Tyson gets the nickname Tutty because when baby Tyson was little, it seemed so crazy to keep calling this tiny little baby Tyson, obviously, looking at his dad.

"So we somehow came to the name of Tutty and it just seemed to stick."

Discussing previously why they chose unique names for their kids, Tyson, 35, whose nickname is The Gypsy King, explained: "My wife is called Paris. I'm Tyson and [gesturing to his son] he's called Prince John James. If the girl had a normal name it wouldn't fit in, would it?"

Tyson himself is named after legendary boxer Mike Tyson and he's previously explained why his own father bestowed the name upon him.

The boxer's dad, John, who also features in the docuseries, said Iron Mike was the inspiration behind his son’s name, as the fighter was reigning supreme when he was born in 1988.

On top of that, baby Tyson was three months premature and weighed just a pound, so, touchingly, his dad felt he needed something that would give him strength and belief.

“I thought, ‘There’s only one name fitting for him, he’s fought hard to become a person living in this world,’” John said.

Since the release of the Furys' docuseries, social media has been flooded with praise for Paris, with viewers expressing awe at how she manages to handle such a large family and her husband's career with grace and dedication.

One viewer wrote: “Watching at home with the Fury's and Paris has her hands full with this lot, Tyson included.”

Another tweeted: “Only one episode into ' At Home With The Furys and Paris Fury deserves a medal and more.”

A third added: “I will be watching At Home with the Furys for Paris fury and her only.”

While a fourth chimed in: “Paris Fury is a saint raising all those kids with an adult baby #AtHomeWithTheFurys.”

While fans are eager for more episodes, there has been no official confirmation from Netflix regarding a potential second series.
