Carrie Bickmore hits the beach with her kids before returning to The Project

·Lifestyle Editor

She’s the much-loved host of the Project whose face is beamed into living rooms all over the nation during the week.

But Carrie Bickmore has proved she’s able to juggle her work and home life in cute new snaps she uploaded to her Instagram account.

The 39-year-old looked in her element in the photos, which showed her playing with her adorable one-year-old daughter Adelaide, four-year-old daughter Evie and 12-year-old son, Oliver.

“Back at work today and missing these little people already,” Carrie wrote.

“Feeling so incredibly grateful for some quality time together. (But....currently enjoying a hot coffee in quiet, with no teething koala bear in my arms, no one asking me questions and no arguments to break up! Who would have thought a 12 year old and 4 year old would have stuff to bicker over?”

The TV star looked stunning in Rip Curl’s Saffron Skies Surfsuit , which according to the brand has a UPF 50+ protection rating.

Carrie returned to work yesterday just days after Channel 10 confirmed there would be a shakeup on The Project panel.

“You won't see the same faces six nights a week but what I would like to have is consistency and familiarity,” she told the Herald Sun.

“We don't want people to feel like they're getting the B-team.”

Carrie Bickmore remains the show’s longest running presenter after joining the program for its debut back in 2009 alongside Charlie Pickering. Fellow host Waleed Aly and comedian Pete Helliar are among the show’s other main presenters.

Lisa Wilkinson joined the program in 2018 to host The Sunday Project, but has since then also filled in during the week, with viewers also regularly seeing Gorgi Coghlan, Susie Youssef, Joel Creasey and Tommy Little at the desk.

Hamish MacDonald had also been a regular presenter until his move to the ABC. The veteran journo was announced as the new host of Q and A back in November.
