Carrie Bickmore’s hilarious explanation to her daughter of how she got pregnant
Carrie Bickmore has revealed how she was forced to give her three-year-old daughter the “birds and the bees” chat when Evie asked her how “the baby got into my tummy?”.
Speaking to co-host Tommy Little on their 2DAYFM show Carrie & Tommy, the 37-year-old shared her hilarious response.
“She’s obsessed,” said Carrie. “It’s all she asks me, over and over again and if I don’t give her the answer, I say to her ‘go ask daddy’, then she goes and asks daddy and he says ‘go ask mummy’ and so it goes on.”
So instead of explaining to her daughter how the baby “got into” her tummy, Carrie decided to explain how the baby “got out”.
“I so didn’t want to explain how it got into my tummy the other day, that I explained quite graphically how it got out… but I wasn’t willing to explain how it got in,” she said.
“I said ‘it comes out my hole,'” Carrie revealed. But that didn’t satisfy Evie’s curiosity.
“And she said ‘do I have a hole?’ and I said ‘yes’ and she said ‘do I have a big one’ and I said ‘sure,'” she said.
“I was just trying to move the conversation along, and then I explained how it stretches… because I was naked at the time and she was looking at me and she was trying to work out how it obviously comes out the size of the hole.”
But again, little Evie wasn’t satisfied with the explanation and eventually dad Chris Walker gave in.
“It involves using mummy’s … and daddy’s … and those two things together make a baby,” she recounted, clarifying that they use the “proper [words] for it because we do that in the house”.
“She then said ‘Why don’t we use her bottom?’, and he informed her that in this scenario it wasn’t very helpful.”
“Anyway issue’s resolved, I don’t have to deal with it, it’s been dealt with and now she knows all about everything.”
