When it comes to juggling a successful television and radio career alongside life as mum to three gorgeous children, Carrie Bickmore is refreshingly honest about the highs and lows of motherhood.

Shortly after the birth of one-year-old Adelaide, Carrie was happy to share that the newborn stage is tough.

In one particular Instragram post, which showed a gorgeous smiling image of one-month-old Adelaide, Carrie ran through the checklist of exactly what those previous four-weeks had involved. The list included a bout of mastitis, sleepless nights where she was Googling ‘what is reflux’ at 3am, feeling overwhelmed, struggling with her three year old, Evie, tears of exhaustion and happiness and on the list went.

The 39-year-old Gold Logie star is also quick to point out that she certainly doesn’t have it all together. Often posting images with the captions “Instagram vs Reality”, to prove that the glossy images we often see on social media often tell a completely different background story.

Carrie is refreshing, real and relatable. Scroll on for some of her best family photos and parenting hits and misses.
