Supermom! Carrie Underwood, who is pregnant with her second child, opened up exclusively to Us Weekly about how she makes time for work and being a mother.
“Balance is what it’s all about. No matter what your job is,” Underwood, 35, told Us at CMT Artists of the Year in Nashville on Wednesday, October 17. “Being a mom, working and dividing your time. It is what we all have to do as mothers.”
The “Love Wins” singer is expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher. The couple, who are already parents of 3-year-old son Isaiah, announced the happy news in August. “Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond,” Underwood told fans in an Instagram video at the time.
Meanwhile, the former Nashville Predators player, 38, has stepped up during his wife’s pregnancy. “Mike is being the most doting, amazing husband while Carrie is pregnant,” a source told Us in August. “Mike tries to take Carrie out once or twice a week for date night in Nashville.”
The insider added: “[He is] reading a bunch of parenting books, rubbing Carrie’s feet and is making sure she is happy and comfortable at all times.”
Underwood, who suffered three miscarriages in two years before her current pregnancy, revealed during a September appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she knows the gender of her baby but is not spilling the beans just yet. “We like to kind of just hold on to things for a minute,” she noted. “I feel like everyone knows just everything about everybody.”
The country crooner, who showed off her baby bump at Wednesday’s event, also spoke to Us about the empowering quality of the evening’s all-female lineup. “We all stick together. Women in the industry have a great sense of unity,” she explained. “Having women being recognized right now speaks volumes for the industry. We all support each other and tonight’s performances will exemplify that.”
