Both Georgia and Tommy left the show that made them famous TOWIE behind to become parents for the first time.
Georgia has very different plans to the TOWIE stars who have brought their kids up on-screen including stars Billie and Sam Faiers on The Mummy Diaries to Ferne McCann on First Time Mum.
Previously, the blonde bombshell revealed she didn't want their children growing up in front of the cameras and on TV.
She told The Sun : "When 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."
