Who are Mary Bedford’s family?
- Mary is close to her mum, but does not often share pictures of family.
Although she is an influencer, Mary tends to keep her posts to selfies, or occasionally with close friends.
However, she has publicly said that her first modelling shoot was accompanied by her mum.
It happened after an agent took Mary’s number when buying a tracksuit, before calling her mum and asking her daughter to model for a brand.
Mary has not spoken about any siblings, and tends to keep her family life private and away from social media.
What happened to Mary’s family?
- Mary’s grandmother passed away while she was on Love Island.
She revealed the news to her Instagram followers on August 26th.
The Islander said she had been taking time to mourn, reflect and be back with her loved ones before returning to social media.
Aaron reportedly said Mary had “ghosted” him and ignored his messages, when revealing their split in an Instagram Q&A.
