‘Our happy place!’ Carrie Bickmore dotes on six-month-old daughter Adelaide as she takes her for a walk… after admitting she thought she had postnatal depression
She recently admitted that she was ‘struggling’ so much after the birth of daughter Adelaide six months ago, that she thought she had postnatal depression.
But on Saturday, Carrie Bickmore enjoyed a walk with her little girl, doting on her as she had her strapped to her chest in a carrier.
The Project star, 38, took to Instagram on Saturday to share a sweet snap of herself and Adelaide while out and about, saying that they were both in their ‘happy place.’

‘Her happy place = my happy place,’ Carrie captioned the image, adding the hashtag: ‘Strapped to my chest.’
In the image, which appears to have a pink, floral filter on it, Carrie beams as she holds Adelaide, who wears a sweet bear onesie.
Carrie looks fresh wearing makeup including winged eyeliner and wears a dark cap.
It’s unclear if Carrie is back in her native Melbourne with her family, or still in London, after travelling there to watch the Spice Girls.
It comes after the mother-of-three admitted in her column for Stellar magazine last month, that she has been ‘struggling’ since the birth of Adelaide.
She wrote: ‘It’s been one of the most challenging periods of my parenting life. I realise now I had it pretty easy during the newborn phase with my other two kids.’
Adelaide suffered from reflux and needed to be held constantly, the TV host revealed.
The lack of sleep led to a breakdown when Carrie’s partner Chris Walker was away on holiday with her oldest child, Ollie, 11.
Carrie writes she ‘felt trapped’ and found herself texting Chris multiple times in the early hours of the morning.
‘I’m really struggling… I can’t do this on my own tonight, I’m worried I may be getting postnatal depression,’ she wrote in her desperate messages.
The star says that the baby is now better and the family have settled into a routine, but admits those early weeks were fraught with ‘anxiety’.
Carrie and partner Chris Walker also share daughter Evie, four, together, while Carrie also has son Oliver, 11, with late husband, Greg Lange.
