Carrie Bickmore opens up about her ‘horror’ first week back at work after third baby

Just three months after giving birth to her third child, Adelaide, the 38-year-old went back to her gig hosting the Hit Network’s Carrie & Tim show.

Carrie, who is also mum to Ollie, 11 and Evie, three, admitted it probably wasn’t the best week to head back into work mode.

“Week 1 back on radio @carrietommyshow certainly packed a punch! The household had gastro, colds and nits. Welcome back to work mummy!!!! What will week 2 bring?!” she wrote on Instagram.

“We are broadcasting live from my house each afternoon so expect to hear tears (from any one of us!), a chatty toddler and an 11 year old arriving home from school. Chaos.”

What’s more, Carrie’s co-host Tommy Little revealed he helped de-lice Carrie’s nit-infested hair.

“I was really excited to get back on air and then my first day involved a cake that said “f— you” and de lice-ing @bickmorecarrie’s hair,” he captioned on a snap of himself treating the mum-of-three’s hair. “Can’t wait for what’s in store for the rest of the year!”

Poor Carrie. Things can only hopefully get better, right?!
