And Georgia’s sadness was brought back to the surface as she reflected on her trauma while writing new book I Wish I Knew, where she speaks openly about the heartache of baby loss.

After almost a year since since the nightmare, Georgia says she’s ‘distracted’ by ‘dream child’ Brody but often experiences negative thoughts, especially when she’s on social media.

But she wants to try have four children with Tommy, who she married in a surprise ceremony last year, as she’s always visualised having a big family, like it was when she grew up with two siblings.

She said: ‘I don’t think you ever get over the feeling.

‘I have just started therapy, I’m much better, luckily for me I have Brody who’s the love of my life, he’s a dream child and keeps me distracted, but there are still triggers. The problem with baby loss is there are triggers everywhere.

‘All my Instagram is either babies or weddings. The hardest thing I have learned is that it’s okay to feel sad but happy for other people.

‘I really struggled with that… I thought I was a bad person.

‘The aftermath is draining, it is hard. Hopefully one day I will be pregnant again and maybe that will make me feel better, but I don’t know.

‘I really want a big family; I see us having three or four children. When you’re old, you look at your table and it’s full of people, that’s what it comes down to.’ 

While Georgia says writing her book was a cathartic experience, she also had to cope with reliving a lot of her previous trauma.

The Baby Steps star has previously explained that she had to undergo a termination after doctors discovered a rare chromosome disorder that meant the couple’s baby had no chance of survival.

If she had continued with her pregnancy, her baby would have been miscarried or stillborn.

Recording the audio book was particularly difficult but Georgia says confronting her heartache head-on has helped her to move forward, and she urges women experiencing similar emotions to do the same.

She said: ‘Writing the book resurfaced a lot of bad memories… especially baby loss because that wasn’t in the brief. 

‘I was pregnant when I was writing the book and then it all changed and that was hard. I was like s*** I’ve got to add this chapter. I didn’t want to talk about it, but I had to.

‘I did the audio recording in January… that was hard. I remember just coming off my period and I told the producer I needed a minute because you are really… it’s so raw.

‘I’m talking from my heart, and I was reliving it again. I know it will help people though, so I have to keep going. It does help me afterwards because the more I talk, the better I feel.’

Georgia also discusses in her book feeling ‘lost’ after becoming a mother for the first time, saying ‘I looked like a different person.’

She went from being a glamorous TV star to only wearing ‘baggy clothes’ and says once Tommy returned to work and visits from friends stopped, she asked herself ‘What am I supposed to do now?’

Learning how to be a mother was tough too, with Georgia admitting she was paid to endorse some baby products that she wasn’t even sure how to work herself.

She said: ‘I remember having Brody and I was in a really dark place, my hormones were everywhere, and I felt so low.

‘It’s really, really hard because you are you all this time and then you’re a mother and you’ve got to look after this human.

‘They need you all day, the TV you’re watching is children’s TV, the food you’re cooking is for them, your whole life is focused around this little, tiny person telling you what to do.

‘Looking back now, if I could give myself some advice it would be don’t put too much pressure on yourself, allow yourself that time because it’s a lot.’

Georgia credits partner of ten years Tommy for helping to find her confidence again.

She recalls the footwear entrepreneur organising a babysitter and taking her shopping, where he treated her to some new clothes.

The gesture is one Georgia says will stay with her forever because it was the first step in her starting to feel like her old self again.

Georgia says writing her new book I Wish I Knew was like ¿therapy¿ as she reflected on the highs and lows of her childhood and becoming a mum for the first time to son Brody

She said: ‘Tommy saved me. He was amazing with me.

‘I will never forget it, one day he took me shopping and I said I didn’t want to go but we went out and he bought me really nice gym stuff. 

‘I got really excited about my new little wardrobe that he bought me, I felt confident in it, just by giving me a few more outfits, it boosted my confidence and then I started to get my hair done again, and feel like me.’

Georgia and Tommy shocked their fanbase by posting an image from the day of their legal wedding after tying the knot in secret last December.

Writing on Instagram, Georgia said: ‘After a challenging year, we decided we wanted to end the year happy, in love and together as husband and wife. Wedding part two coming soon…’

And now Georgia has revealed she’s the opposite of a bridezilla and is under pressure from her wedding planner to start making some important decisions.

She said: ‘I am so excited for our Spanish wedding next year.

‘I have barely organised anything because I am the worst bride. I haven’t thought about this since I was a child like most girls. I haven’t been that girl.

‘I’ve got no band, all I have are 12 bridesmaids, which is so dramatic. It’s going to be chaos and like one big party.

‘I know what I want to wear though, I’m going to get my dress designed and have an evening dress because I just want to get down and dirty and dance the night away.’
