1. “I have huge mixed emotions.” Carrie Bickmore on returning to The Project after maternity leave.
On Monday night, beloved TV presenter Carrie Bickmore will return to her seat behind the desk on The Project, seven months after giving birth to her daughter Adelaide.
The 38-year-old took maternity leave from the Network 10 news show after welcoming her third child, the second with her partner Chris Walker.
Despite having co-hosted The Project for 10 years, Bickmore says she has “mixed emotions” about returning to her role.

“I’m looking forward to getting a coffee and being able to drink it before it gets cold, and for the silence of a 20-minute ride into work. But I’ll be really honest, I have huge mixed emotions about [going back to The Project],” she told The Sydney Morning Herald on Sunday.
“I think it’s going to be a massive adjustment for me heading back to work. I’ll have a little pain in my tummy, but that’s the reality of working when you’re a parent… I don’t know if you ever feel quite content.”
Bickmore has been open about struggling going from two to three children, sharing candid images of herself and baby Addie on Instagram during her maternity leave. She is also mum to Ollie, 12, and Evie, four.
We can’t wait to see Carrie back on our screens next week!
