Carrie Bickmore shares the hilarious realities of parenting on social media

Celebrities often give a very glamorous picture of motherhood, but not Carrie Bickmore!

It’s not the first time The Project host has ‘got real’ about her views on motherhood and her latest snaps are hilarious.

‘Instagram versus reality’: Carrie Bickmore shares the less glamorous side of parenting

Carrie, 38, shared two contrasting images of herself with her two-month-old daughter Adelaide. The first is a funky showbiz pic of her napping with her newborn on lap, hat perfectly positioned.

The next, the tired mamma can be seen exhaustedly sprawled across a couch – a lot less glam than the first!

“INSTAGRAM verses REALITY (swipe right),” the mum-of-three captioned the photos.

“1st pic was taken on a flattering angle, with some props, some casual hand positioning, some clever cropping and a nice little filter added.

“The 2nd was the real moment captured without my knowledge a couple of weeks after Adelaide was born before I woke up and suggested we take a nice shot.”

Carrie’s refreshingly honest pics resonated with mums everywhere.

“I love that you are so raw and real! Sincerely a first-time mum who is definitely the picture on the right,” one fan commented on the pic.

Another follower added: “You are a total legend for posting both…We can definitely relate, finally, someone shows what it really looks like!”

Way to keep it real, Carrie!

We just love how open and candid Carrie was about motherhood when pregnant with Adelaide. She also shared how she was both excited and terrified of being a mum of three.
