Burgess WAG Tahlia Giumelli is left mortified after her two-year-old daughter used the F-word at a café
Tahlia Giumelli, the model wife of NRL player Tom Burgess, had an embarrassing parenting moment on Tuesday when her toddler used the F-word at a Sydney café.
The 29-year-old, who married the Rabbitohs star in January, revealed on Instagram that her two-year-old, Sophie, had said ‘f**k it’ twice in anger.
She was so stunned the first time her little girl used the F-word that she assumed she’d misheard it and asked Sophie to repeat herself, only for her to swear again.

The mortified mother of two posted a selfie of her stunned reaction, and revealed she’d used the incident as a lesson about what words shouldn’t be used.
‘I’ve always been impressed by Sophie’s speech and language development,’ Tahlia said.
‘But not this morning when she decided to say really loudly at a café, “No mum, just f**k it.” When I asked her what she said, again she goes, “Mum, I said f**k it.”‘

‘This was me trying to to hold it in, and not give into any of the attention,’ she added.
‘Thankfully I managed to squash it for now with a conversation about words we don’t ever use.’
It comes after Tom and Tahlia gave a joint interview to Stellar magazine last month in which they discussed their recent ‘no-fuss’ wedding.

‘When we got married, it was about making our commitment to each other, in front of our kids, for our kids, [and] saying, “There are going to be really good times and there are going to be not-so great times. But that doesn’t matter. We’ve got each other,”‘ Tahlia added.
Sophie, and her one-year-old sister Elodie were part of the ceremony, which their mother hopes they will remember fondly.
‘Our girls might not understand it now, but they’ll look back on it and realise how special it was to be there and part of it,’ Tahlia said.
