I use my baby as my fast track ticket, mums can judge me but you've got to make the most of it, says Jorgie Porter | The Sun

ANY mum is bound to agree that there are plenty of downsides when it comes to travelling with a baby, whether that’s packing everything but the kitchen sink or dealing with a tantrum on a plane.

But Jorgie Porter has learned that there is one big perk, and is urging more mothers to take advantage.

The 35-year-old soap star and fiancé Ollie Piotrowski, who has a son from a previous relationship, welcomed their son Forest in November 2022.

And while many new mums might hole up at home for the foreseeable future, Jorgie was keen for her son to see the world from a young age.

While some are cautious about travelling with a newborn, Jorgie admitted it has its perks and has encouraged fellow parents to take the leap of faith.

Speaking exclusively to Fabulous, the Hollyoaks star said: “I’ve just got back from Marbella and it was really good to get away with the baby.

“You should always go on holiday with your baby, because you can jump to the front of the queue.

“We actually did travel when he was quite young, which I think is good as well.

“You’ve just got to get back on that horse.”

Jorgie has travelled with Forest a number of times during the early months, whisking him off on two sunny beach holidays including to Dubai at just four months old, and says she’s learnt to ignore the eye rolls of mum-shamers.

But mum shaming no, I don’t even listen, I don’t even take it in.”

She previously told us: “I am a person who doesn’t listen or take in what anyone really says negatively.

“If anything I block them, I’ve probably lost more followers blocking them, rather than caring what they think.

“But mum shaming no, I don’t even listen, I don’t even take it in.”

Nine months into parenthood and Jorgie feels “more settled” and “confident” having days out with her child than ever before.

Asked how she has found motherhood, she replied: “I think I’m in a place now where things are a bit easier to understand and to cope with, you feel a bit more settled, you can leave the house confidently on your own.”

Jorgie has eased her way into work following her pregnancy as she has featured in a number of beauty campaigns, and is set to reprise her role as feisty Theresa McQueen on the longstanding Channel 4 soap in due course.

But, that’s not to say she hasn’t experienced her fair share of “mum guilt”.

Jorgie, who has partnered with Wilkinson Sword as the new celebrity ambassador for Wilkinson Sword Intuition 2 in 1 Ultra Moisture Razor Summer Campaign, told us: “You don’t really know about mum guilt until it actually happens.

“So when I got work, or even going on the Wilkinson Sword shoot abroad for the whole day I thought ‘Oh my god, what do we do with the child?’”

She added: “I see it as a good thing for him to get used to friends and family, and to learn different things.
