TOWIE star Georgia Kousoulou revealed her body is swollen after giving birth via C-section.
During a very candid Q&A with fans on Instagram the new mum also revealed she hasn't weighed herself since falling pregnant.
When asked if she'd gained a lot of weight, she replied with a picture of her bump and 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!"
A fan celebrated Georgia's attitude and said it wouldn't have been wise for her to rush back after a such a major operation.
The reality star also revealed boyfriend Tommy Mallet's real name – leaving fans shocked.
The 29-year-old and Tommy announced the birth of their first child last week – but revealed he didn't have either of their surnames.
Instead they named him Brody Fordham.
New mum Georgia explained: "Mallet is a nickname for Tommy! Fordham is his real name."
She also revealed that she is not breastfeeding Brody as "breast was not best" for their family.
One follower asked how she was finding feeding, Georgia replied: "You have to do what's right for you!!!
"For me and my family, breast wasn't best. Brody is on Aptamil and he is very content and happy."
The new mum also said that she had planned a planned caesarean, telling her fans that it was a "positive" experience.
She said: "Honestly, people don't talk positively enough about C-sections. The whole thing for me has been SO positive & I would 100 per cent do it again!
"Get your playlist ready & try to enjoy it! Honestly it was amazing… arnica tablets for after are amazing' followed by a heart emoji."
Georgia recently said that giving birth was the "best experience of her life" as she shared a beaming snap with her son.
In the photo, glowing Georgia was make-up free and in a hospital gown having just given birth.
Baby Brody was cradled under her arm, wearing a white hat and wrapped in a patterned blanket.

She went on to pay tribute to her partner, adding: "@tommy_mallet I didn’t think I could love you more than I did already .. you are the best x"
