CARRIE Bickmore has revealed the sneaky way she hid the early stages of her pregnancy while appearing on The Project.
On Thursday, the TV host revealed she was expecting her third child in a cute family video shared to Instagram.
Speaking on her radio show Carrie & Tommy on The Hit Network that afternoon, Bickmore revealed keeping her bump a secret took some manoeuvring.
“I’ve been wearing lots of jackets and jumpers, but on The Project right, the desk crosses right across my belly and I’ve slowly been lowering my chair a tiny bit,” she confessed to her radio co-host Tommy Little, who also makes guest appearances on The Project.
Bickmore admitted her sneaky move caused some confusion between staff, but no-one suspected the real reason behind it.
“It’s funny because the floor staff keep going to like Waleed or Hamish, ‘can you guys lower your chair? I don’t know what’s happening but you’re so out of whack height wise,’” Bickmore said.
“[I thought] is anyone noticing that I’m going down down down as the weeks go on? I thought soon it will just be my little head above the desk.”
Unlike her other pregnancies, Bickmore doesn’t want to find out the sex of the child before it is born.
“I don’t know, I found out with Ollie, found out with Evie and I’m thinking maybe I just let it go for this one, let it be a surprise,” she said.
Carrie shares three-year-old daughter Evie with partner Chris Walker, while she had 10-year-old son Oliver with husband Greg Lange, who died from brain cancer in 2010.
