Carrie Underwood is pregnant with her second child.
The singer made this exciting announcement about six weeks ago, alerting the world to her expecting state.
But the former American Idol champion revealed in a CBS Sunday Morning interview yesterday that she could have made this same announcement at multiple points in the recent past.
Tragically, however, Underwood never got the opportunity to do so -- because she suffered three miscarriages over the course of these last two years.
“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” said Underwood in this emotional Q&A. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”
Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are parents to a three-year old named Isaiah.
This sit-down marked the first time Underwood has opened up about her attempts to give him a brother or sister.
An artist who has always been candid about her faith, Carrie said she turned to religion during these difficult times.
"And that was the thing, in the beginning, it was like, ‘Okay, God, we know this is, just wasn’t Your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it."
After suffering a second miscarriage in 2017 and then a third in 2018, “at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘Okay, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?'” said Underwood.
We really can't imagine what she and Fisher must have been going through. How horrible.
“I had always been afraid to be angry,” Underwood said to Tracy Smith of her reaction, explaining her mindset as follows:
“Because we are so blessed. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he’s the best thing in the world. And I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s okay, because he’s amazing.’
"And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No."
But when Underwood thought she might be having yet another miscarriage this time?
"I got mad," she admitted.
Underwood said she kept wondering why she kept getting pregnant when the pregnancies could never make it to term, even talking to God at one point about what the heck was going on.
“For the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt,” she said.
“That was like a Saturday - and the Monday I went to the doctor to, like, confirm, another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great!
"He heard me."
Thank goodness, right?
Underwood also suffered a nasty fall late last year and had to get 50 stitches in her face.
She was very honest with fans afterward, talking about how different she looked and felt and how she was even afraid to be seen in public.
"It was … a very soul-searching year for me,” Underwood recently told Redbook, adding:
“There were some personal things that happened. And I had the accident and all of that to get through … and just life. Life is full of ups and downs, and I might have had a few more downs than ups last year."
But now things are looking very far up for Carrie and Fisher. We wish them the best!
