Carrie Bickmore’s first husband Greg Lange died in 2010 after a nine-year battle with brain cancer. 

And the Project host came close to breaking down when describing the bittersweet joy of her wedding day to Greg on Anh’s Brush With Fame on the ABC on Wednesday.

Carrie struggled a little as she told host Anh Do, 41: ‘We got married when I was 25. I look back at our wedding and it was a real mix of love and just a celebration of life.’

Tearing up, and with her voice weakening, Carrie, 37, added: ‘It was a great day.’

‘They diagnosed him about a year after we moved to Melbourne. I was 21 or 22 and he was about 25. He had a seizure and one thing led to another,’ Carrie explained. 

Carrie and Greg had their son, Oliver Lange, in 2007.

Greg tragically died just three years later, in December 2010. 

‘It was a really… it was great. It was a great thing for both of us to have him and to have that focus,’ Carrie said of her pregnancy. 

Carrie had her daughter Evie Walker, 3, in March 2015 with her current husband, Chris Walker, and the couple are expecting their second child together.

Carrie met Chris while he worked as a producer on Network Ten’s The Project, and it is believed the pair began dating in 2012.

The TV host said that she and Chris bonded over their separate experiences with loss.

During an interview with Woman’s Day in 2015, Carrie revealed: ‘He lost his brother in a car accident.’

‘I think that’s why I connected with him – he had an understanding of what I’d experienced through his own experience.’
