Country music superstar Carrie Underwood and her hockey player husband Mike Fisher have recently announced they are expecting their second child together. The couple is parents to three-year-old Isaiah. Following their exciting announcement about another baby on the way, Underwood shared in a recent interview that she has suffered three miscarriages in the 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, 35. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”
Following her devastating loss, she turned to her faith in God to get her through. “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.'”
Unfortunately, Underwood went on to suffer another miscarriage in 2017 and another in 2018. She wasn't sure why this was all happening and began to question just what was going on.
“I had always been afraid to be angry,” the country singer shared in her interview with CBS.“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.”
After she thought she might be experiencing her fourth miscarriage, she began to wonder why she continued to get pregnant if she wasn't able to actually have a baby.
“And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt,” she went on to say. “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," she said, referencing God.
2017 has proved to be a trying year for Underwood. In addition to her difficult losses, she experienced a fall which led to 40-50 stitches in her face and a broken wrist.
Thankfully, she has recovered from her injuries and has learned to see herself in a new way. “It was also a perception thing because I look at myself [now] and I see it quite a bit, but other people are like, ‘I wouldn’t have even noticed.’ Nobody else looks at you as much as you think they do. Nobody notices as much as you think they will, so that’s been nice to learn.”
