Towie’s Georgia Kousoulou takes a swipe at ex co-stars and says she ‘doesn’t want her baby to grow up on TV’

PREGNANT Georgia Kousoulou has revealed she'll introduce her baby to fans on Towie after she gives birth – but admitted she doesn’t want her son to grow up on TV.

The reality star and her boyfriend Tommy Mallet are expecting their first child together after six years on the ITVBe show – which returned to screens on Sunday.

But Georgia, 29, hasn't made up her mind on whether she feels comfortable with raising a child in the spotlight.

Asked if she'll show her son on air, she said: "I'll have to – yes."

In a swipe at former Towie stars who are raising their kids in front of the cameras, she added: "If he’s only a baby I will, but when he’s a bit older I’ll probably rethink it once he goes to nursery because I don’t know if I want him growing up on TV.

"I haven’t made that decision yet, but when they’re babies – they’re fine because they don’t know any different, and they change so much."

Georgia former co-stars Billie and Sam Faiers hit the jackpot with their reality series The Mummy Diaries showing their life after Towie, as they raise their kids.

Whilst Ferne McCann also capitalised on her Towie fame and motherhood with reality show First Time Mum.

Georgia confirmed she and Tommy, 28, have agreed to film Towie spin-off episodes with ITVBe and Lime Pictures producers about the couple becoming mum and dad – but ruled out taking on any more.

Speaking about the episodes Georgia said: "We start filming in the first week of April which is exciting.

"So you’re going to see us moving house, and the first episode will be all about before the baby comes, and the second episode will be once the baby is here. So it’s just two hour specials."

Georgia had been isolating during her pregnancy as she feared catching Covid, but said Towie have been super cautious with her filming arrangements.

She said: "I feel much more confident now as Covid is dying down, but I still haven’t set foot in the supermarket since last year.

"From 28 weeks a pregnant woman is more high-risk, and I’ve heard lots of horror stories about pregnant women so I’m just being cautious. I’m back filming TOWIE now, but they’re taking lots of precautions."

Reflecting on the moment she discovered she was pregnant last year, Georgia added: "I love tea, and I stopped finishing my cups of tea, and for anyone who knows me – that’s really strange.

"Plus Monkey my dog kept lying on my stomach, and being a bit weird with me… but the tea was the main thing for me. So I just did a test, and the first one read negative, and I said to my friend, ‘I have this feeling.’

"I remembered my boob hurt – I touched my boob and went, ‘Ohhh’, which never happens. So I was going to leave it and thought – I’m not (pregnant). Then a week later I did another test, and it was positive. It was crazy!"

The star is in the final stages of pregnancy but is taking it in her stride – saying she isn't worried about the labour as long as the baby is delivered safely.

She said: "I like the idea of a water birth, and the calming aspect of it, but I’m really open-minded, and I think what will be – will be."

Georgia is now the newest face of Dementia UK – the only charity dedicated to caring for families affected by dementia through its specialist Admiral Nurses.

She said: "My Nan sadly got dementia a few years ago, and she is in an nursing home.

"Since lockdown her condition has worsened like I knew it would.

"I haven’t been able to see her since last March, and she now no longer recognises my dad which is heartbreaking.

"I haven’t been able to tell her I’m pregnant, because in her mind I’m still a little girl. So for her to see me with a bump wouldn’t make any sense to her at all."
