Carrie had cried earlier in the show as Stacey shared her grief over her late father, who died of a heart attack when she was in her twenties.

‘I understand, Stace, that your dad died and he never got to see you as a mum, never got to see you walk down the aisle, all those moments, and your mum has found that really tough as well, yeah?’ Carrie asked.

‘Yeah, it was really hard,’ Stacey replied.

‘My dad passed away in his mid fifties; he had a heart attack. I was in my early twenties. He died a year before I had my son,’ she said. 

‘So my son has his initials and middle name. My son walked me down the aisle. Today is my wedding anniversary and I share my wedding anniversary with my parents.’

Carrie has been co-hosting the Carrie and Tommy show with comedian Tommy Little since 2017. She is also a presenter on Channel 10’s The Project.
