Carrie Bickmore and her partner Chris Walker have welcomed a beautiful baby girl Evie into the world.

The Project co-host announced the news on social media – and shared a snap of the bub.

This is Bickmore’s second child, she is already mum to seven-year-old Ollie, who is the son of her late husband Greg Lange, who passed away in 2010.

The 34-year-old Gold Logie nominee took to Twitter over the weekend to reveal that doctors had said her unborn baby is currently the size of a pumpkin.

Bickmore shared plenty of baby bump photos from the set of The Project during her last week at work before taking a break.

In one, she compares bellies with co-host Peter Helliar. The caption reads: “2nd last show with this man before I go on mat leave for a few months. Don’t laugh me into early labour Petey!!!”

In another she thanked her stylists for finding her “something super stretchy” to wear on the show.


Gorgi Coghlan will replace Bickmore on The Project panel while she’s on maternity leave, but the mum-of-two only plans to be off for a few months and has vowed to be on the red carpet for her favourite night of the year, the TV Week Logie Awards, held on May 3 in Melbourne.

Bickmore posed for a stunning pregnant photo shoot with Australian Woman’s Weekly last month, opening up about her partner, her son and losing her first husband to brain cancer.

“I’m so excited,” she told the mag, “But I’m also slightly terrified. I think when you have done it once before, when you do it again, you know what you are in for.”

Congratulations to Carrie and Chris on their brand new bundle of joy!
