TOWIE star Georgia Kousoulou has told fans she made the decision to not to breast feed her new baby, Brody, who she shares with boyfriend Tommy Mallet.

Georgia, 29, took part in a Q&A on her Instagram story this week in which she delved into her birth story and gave details on baby Brody.

When asked if she was breastfeeding, Georgia wrote: “You have to do what’s right for YOU!!! For me & my family breast wasn’t best. Brody is on Aptamil & he is very content and happy."

Georgia opened up about her postpartum body and told fans she wasn't putting herself under any pressure.

When asked by a fan if she'd put on weight during her pregnancy, she wrote: "I don't even know, I haven't weighed myself at all & my body is swollen from the c section. I'm giving myself a year to feel back to myself! I don't want or need the pressure."

The star went on to explain that following a planned C-section, she stayed in hospital with her new baby boy for two nights. She said: “Yes I stayed in 2 nights & it was the best thing as the midwifes & everyone was amazing.

"I also learnt how to change a nappy and feed a baby.”

Georgia also opened up about having a Cesarean section, writing: “Honestly people don’t talk positive enough about c sections. The whole thing for me has been SO positive & I would 100 percent do it again! Get your playlist ready & try to enjoy it. Honestly it was amazing… arnica tablets for after are amazing.”

The star also said that her little bundle of joy is “Tommy’s twin.”

The couple announced the arrival of their first child last week. The reality television star announced the news on Instagram, revealing that she and Tommy have named the baby Brody Fordham.

Next to a snap of her in a hospital bed holding the newborn, as Tommy wears surgical scrubs and beams at her side, Georgia wrote: "Introducing you. Brody Fordham, 05.05.21 weighing 8lb 9. We are so in love." Her caption also included numerous heart emojis.

The tot was delivered via a planned Caesarean after Georgia discovered he was in the breech position.

The star, 29, revealed the change to her birth plan on Instagram, telling fans: “So baby is coming earlier than we thought because I’m having a C-Section. Baby is breech.

“But because of that, I have not stopped. I know everyone keeps saying you need to rest, but he’s coming quicker than we thought so I’ve had to get organised.”

Sharing an image of herself cradling baby Brody shortly after the birth, Georgia wrote to her own 1.4million followers: "Thank you for all your messages. I feel so blessed, the best experience of my life.

"@tommy_mallet I didn't think I could love you more than I did already.. you are the best x."

"We are so in love," she concluded, alongside numerous heart emojis.

New dad Tommy took to his own Instagram page and expressed: "Meet Brody Fordham he's 8lbs 9oz & was born on 05/05/21 at 12:16pm… @georgiakousoulou is very well & so is he."
