Reality star Georgia, who recently shared a snap of her millionaire dad's incredible home, managed to spark pregnancy rumours while hosting a Halloween-themed dinner while reflecting on their relationship on the show last month.
Hinting they had babies on their mind, Tommy said: “I come in handy sometimes, George. I’m needed in other ways… kids. Marriage. You’re not going to get married to yourself, are you?”
Sharing the clip on Instagram, TOWIE’s official account wrote alongside: “Georgia & Tommy celebrate 6 years together. Can you believe Tommy and Georgia have been together for 6 years!? What's next in store for one of the cutest couples in Essex?”
