Tyson revealed earlier in the day that he is raising money for the Ronald McDonald House charity, which provides ‘home from home’ accommodation for families with children in Liverpool’s Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Standing next to his father in an Instagram video, he explained he wants to raise money for the charity due to ‘the fantastic job they do on a daily basis’.

Tyson has remained at Alder Hey hospital since the arrival of his sixth child and explained in a clip shared on Monday that he will be auctioning two signed WBC belts and offering a meet and greet to a randomly selected GoFundMe donor.

Standing next to his father John in the hospital’s carpark, Tyson told his followers in a short clip: ‘Hi this is Tyson Fury aka the Gypsy King. I’m just here with my dad at the children’s hospital.

He concluded: ‘Whoever wins – I’ll pick a winner at random – I will do a personal meet and greet to whoever wins these belts and I’ll personally sign them to you.’        

It comes hours after Tyson revealed his newborn baby daughter is in intensive care.

The day before, Tyson wrote: ‘Please can everyone pray for my baby girl who was born this morning. Athena Fury born 8/8/21.’

The birth of their baby girl comes after Paris endured a lengthy two-day labour.

The new mother-of-six took to Instagram to re-share a video on Saturday that her husband took of them both eating what appeared to be spicy food – in an attempt to speed on the birth of Athena.

Her caption read: ‘He is dangerous with a camera think he’s bored now we nearly at the end of day 2 in here and still no little girly’.

The couple are already parents to Venezuela, 10, Prince John James, eight, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and Prince Adonis Amaziah, 16 months.  

 The couple announced they were expecting their sixth child together in February.

Tyson shared the happy news on boxing correspondent Gareth A Davies’ YouTube series.   

Tyson revealed the news while gushing about his family values, telling Davies: ‘Paris is pregnant again and the Lord has blessed us definitely with another child and I’m very thankful.

‘Got a beautiful wife, beautiful kids, they’re all healthy. That’s the most important thing, you know, your health and your family.

‘Nothing else really matters. Your job, your money, your wealth, your career, none of that really matters because you can get another job, you can start snooker or you can go make more money.

‘It doesn’t really matter but the one thing you can’t get back is your family. You can’t get back time lost and that’s the crazy thing about it all.’ 

 The proud dad, who is the highest-paid fighter of 2020 with £46million in earnings, also spoke about how he and Paris are raising their children to understand the value of money. 

‘For me it’s very important to stay close to my grassroots as I’ve got a lot of kids coming up, I’ve got five kids, very important for them to know the value of money,’ he explained.

‘It’s very important for them to know how to earn money. So, if they see me splashing out all the time and living a move stars’ lifestyle they grow up thinking that’s the only way they can live.

‘To earn from a normal job, £200-300-a-week, however much they’re going to get, they might think that’s no good if they’ve been spoiled rotten by multimillionaire parents.  

‘So I don’t do that. My kids don’t go to private school, I don’t have any private education, they just go to normal school, everyone does normal stuff.’

Paris, who shares a sprawling family home with Tyson and their children in Morecambe, has been forging ahead with her own career over the past year, landing a role as a panellist on Loose Women last year.
