Carrie Bickmore’s pregnancy is blossoming and no one is more excited than her three-year-old daughter Evie, who has taken it upon herself to share some, er, news this week.
The popular TV presenter revealed on her radio show, Carrie & Tommy (Hit Network) that daughter Evie had been spreading rumours at her preschool about her mum’s pregnancy. Carrie said she was stopped by a fellow mum, who wanted to congratulate her.
‘She said, ”Are you not telling people?” And I was like, ”Er, what?” and she said, ”That you’re having twins!” and I was like, ”Pardon?”’

Apparently, it’s not the only story Evie is spreading about her mum’s unborn child. Carrie told her radio listeners that their babysitter had told her Evie’s been sharing the news of their baby’s gender.

But something tells me she’ll be the first to announce the big news when baby arrives …
