Carrie Bickmore has confirmed that she will return to television next month, after taking time off to have a baby.

The Project anchor gave birth to a baby girl, Evie, two months ago, and will go back to work in June.

She said on radio, “I’ve found someone that is going to come in to work and look after Evie while I’m doing my stuff and I’ve got someone to pick [seven-year-old son] Ollie up so it is all a bit of a coordinated effort.

“Once [Evie] settles into a routine and is a bit older, she will be at home but at first I think she still needs to be attached to me for a little bit longer.

Thanks for the Gold Logie votes. Told Evie about the nomination and this was the response I got…

“I’m kind of looking forward to everything settling down to be honest, and just getting into a groove and getting back to work.”


Bickmore won a Gold Logie at the recent awards show, and made headlines for dedicating her moving acceptance speech to her late husband, Greg Lange, who died of brain cancer in 2010.
