‘You cry. You’re looking at this little boy and he was staring into my eyes, I was thinking, ‘Oh my god he’s mine.”

Team: On how becoming a parent has affected their seven year relationship, the former TOWIE star said she now experiences a ‘different type of love’ for Tommy

Looking ahead to the future, the Mallet footwear mogul said he can’t wait to go travelling with his family and to show Brody the world. 

However, the happy couple don’t plan on tying the knot anytime soon as Georgia said she wants to ‘enjoy life’ instead of ‘rushing life’. 

She said she has felt pressure to settle down with Tommy throughout their entire seven year relationship and now, she wants to enjoy time with her family instead of living up to other people’s expectations.

That also applies to having more children as Georgia confirmed she is happy having just one child for the time being.

Priorities: However, the happy couple don’t plan on tying the knot anytime soon as Georgia said she wants to ‘enjoy life’ instead of ‘rushing life’

Georgia has spoken candidly on social media about the changes in her body since giving birth.

The former TOWIE star asserted in the interview that she’s proud of her body and its ability to grow a human, something she reminds Tommy of whenever he gets on her nerves. 

She also joked then she ‘gave birth to Tommy’ as she noted the striking similarity between her partner and their baby. 

But Georgia acknowledged that she sees the resemblance between Brody and herself, now that his cheeks have ‘filled out’ and she can see his dimples.

The couple announced their decision to leave The Only Way Is Essex in May, but they are preparing to return to TV screens later this year with their solo show, Georgia and Tommy: Baby Steps.

According to the mother-of-one, she was initially hesitant about doing their own show, but ultimately decided it was the right thing to do considering their entire relationship has been documented on TV. 

As the first series only has two episodes, Georgia teased the idea of shooting more  instalments in the future while adding that she thinks viewers will enjoy the way it’s filmed because it’s different to other reality show formats.
