During her last radio gig before maternity leave, Carrie Bickmore shared her concerns about the impending arrival of her third child.

Speaking on her Hit Network radio show Carrie and Tommy, the 37-year-old mum broke down in tears as she opened up about adding a new member to her family.

In particular, she was worried about the impact a new baby would have on the close bond formed between her other two kids, Ollie, 11, and Evie, three.

“They’re so cute together,” Carrie said.

“They’re a little team. He (Ollie) never thought he was going to get a baby brother or sister and then he got a little sister and they’re seven years apart and they’re joined at the hip,” she continued.

“And I know families of three and I know they’ll all love each other so much, but I don’t want anything to happen to their bond. So it makes me a little sad,” she said.

Carrie said: “I’m very excited about my expanding family.”

“Ollie thinks we’re having a boy and Evie thinks we’re having a girl so one of them is going to be very disappointed and one very excited,’ she added.

Carrie had her eldest son Ollie during her relationship with her late husband Greg Lange who sadly passed away in 2010 after suffering from brain cancer.

She  met her new partner, Chris Walker and together they welcomed young Evie into the world.

  • Her concerns are real and I think many of us can relate to her feelings. It will be alright Carry !! Xx


  • Wishing them all the very best.


  • Initially Evie may feel a bit left out as you suddenly have a newborn taking some of the time you would spend with her. With some understanding she will adjust to the facts. However she may not show signs of jealousy for a few months. I’ve witnessed that in two families


  • Carrie is so down to earth, her concerns are real and I’m sure her kids will continue to surprise her.


  • leave the breakdowns for real concerns. Lots of bigger families are happy. I wish Carrie and her family all the best.


  • I am so excited for Carrie. Ollie is such a gorgeous kid, I’m sure he will be full of love for his new sibling as will Evie. I think they’re creating such a beautiful family.


  • I think most mums think & feel the same,but as we learn after the new bubs is born,we wonder WHY we ever worried,always so much love to go around & they’ll all share a unique bond.


  • Families make room for new family members and adjust.


  • I think it’s perfectly normal to worry. They will love their baby brother or sister and I’m sure it won’t affect the close bond Ollie and Evie have with each other. By the look and sound of it they have a lot of love to share and the new baby will be surrounded by love

    • You are spot on – there is a lot of love and people are happy to share it!


  • I had the same thoughts when I was having my twins after my singleton, they were premmie so I spent so much time at the hospital when they were born, I felt like I was neglecting my eldest daughter. I think, they are normal worries.


  • A perfectly normal worry. I had the same worry about the impact on my first born when having my second. The trick is remembering that there won’t be less love but more!


  • They will adjust and become a close trio! It will all be ok.


  • Everything will be fine and you’ll wonder why you worried. I must admit I had four as with three there always seemed one left out – however the bonding can be different to what you think. I thought 1 & 2, then 3 & 4. Having a boy first then two girls then a boy, I then thought 1 & 4. 2 & 3. But in our case it turned out to be 1 & 3, 2 & 4. Go figure!


  • ah just pop out a fourth so they can all have a best friend ;)


  • I only have two children but I remember worrying about the change of dynamic a new member would add, while still being so excited to meet this new one. I wish Carrie all the best for the arrival of her baby,
