Style icon tackles motherhood

GEORGINA “George” Wilson has one of the most recognizable faces, having endorsed some of the best global brands — but there was a time when she didn’t want to enter modelling or the world of Philippine entertainment.

She was poised to join the corporate world in London after earning a degree in accounting and finance, when her family members encouraged her to try out modelling first. She fell in love with it, and soon she began to receive projects one after the other. Now, millions of her fans consider the host of 2015 Asia’s Next Top Model as one of the most influential style icons of the decade.

After her dreamy wedding to Arthur Burnand, a British businessman and hotelier in April 2016, the 31-year-old model, TV host and entrepreneur was surprised to find out four months later that she was pregnant. But she embraced her new role wholeheartedly, with the same drive and passion she brings into her career.

George researched and prepared herself as much as she could, wanting only the best for her coming baby. Then she came across Chicco, a beloved brand from Italy that has been making high quality baby products, toys, carriers, strollers, walkers and playpens since 1958. Immediately, she knew she would be able to trust the brand to help her take care of her baby.

“Nobody thought I would be super excited to be a wife or a mom since I was very career-driven. When I got married, it was not in my plan to have a baby so soon, so I was so surprised when I found out. I was like, ‘Wow, this is happening!’” Georgina shares with a laugh. “But there are some things in life that you can plan for, and there are some things that just happen at the right time,” she adds.

So in December 2016, she gave birth to Archie. It was challenging at first, but she was determined to learn as much as she could. “I planned as much as I can because, really, you’re dealing with another individual. Archie is a human being too and he has his own kind of sets of wants, needs. He has his own thing going on so being a mother has taught me that I am not in control of everything. It was very difficult but an important lesson as well,” says Georgina.

Georgina believes that motherhood has changed her, and made her stronger. “I was so excited to do breastfeeding, but it was extremely challenging. I was in pain, and was up for so long during the night. Night after night I was up from midnight until 7am,” she recalls. “I wish somebody would just have told me that it is this difficult. Mothers are strong women that sometimes they forget to share such difficulties. That’s why I’m sharing my story — so that other moms will be empowered to feel okay when they have difficulties, that the pain is part of motherhood, and it’s okay to have that.”

As a self-confessed nerd who loves to research products and tips for traveling and other adventures, Georgina has her own list of travelling essentials. “Number one on the list is our car seat. It is super important, and I really want to raise awareness on car safety, especially here in the Philippines. I don’t like how it’s not mandatory here to have car seats for children. Just Google “car crashes without car seats” and you’ll see it’s not a joke,” Mrs. Wilson-Burnand says in a serious tone. “So number one travel essential is my CHICCO car seat that fits perfectly. I bring the CHICCO walker too, because Archie is obsessed with it, and they’re handy to bring.”

Even when it comes to baby clothing, Georgina trusts CHICCO. “Archie is like the perfect CHICCO baby because of his easygoing and lovable personality. I like it when babies are dressed to look like babies, which is more natural. 

“It may seem kind of weird, but I think Archie was born to have his own kind of look, from his name, to the way he dresses. I feel that I knew him already before he came out of my tummy. I don’t know how to describe it but he really has his own thing going on. And so I feel that’s the reason why it’s so easy to dress him up because I know what looks good on him. He has his own style,” says Georgina with a smile.

Motherhood brings her balance

Before she gave birth to Archie, Georgina worked out a lot and even did prenatal Pilates, which helped her avoid back pains usually associated with pregnancy. “I’m really proud of that, but the next time—if I get pregnant again—I will do a lot more swimming, too. I wish I did, but I only found out I was pregnant four months into it, so my pregnancy flew by so fast,” she adds with a laugh.

Georgina’s favorite part of motherhood is waking up to see her growing little boy. “When we look at each other eye to eye as soon as we wake up... oh my gosh, I don’t know how to describe that. No matter how tired I am, I would just have to look at him, and when he smiles at me, it’s just the best.”
