New mama’s night out! Carrie Underwood has likely spent the last two months up all night tending to her newborn son, Isaiah, nearly 2 months, but it was something else that had the “Something in the Water” singer out late Wednesday night. Underwood, 32, made a rare post-baby appearance at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena April 15 to root on husband Mike Fisher‘s Nashville Predators as they faced off against the Chicago Blackhawks in the opening night of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
“Let’s do this,” Fisher’s proud wife — decked out in team gear — wrote on Instagram prior to the game. Despite Underwood’s early confidence, Fisher’s Predators lost to the Blackhawks 4 to 3, and Fisher was sidelined early in the second period with a lower body injury. With his status listed as “day-to-day,” it is unclear if Fisher will play in Friday’s Game 2.
For Fisher, 34, becoming a first-time dad has helped put his hockey career in perspective. “The other night after a tough game, [TV analyst] Stu Grimson said, ‘Hey, how about that little one?’ and all of a sudden I’m smiling away,” Fisher told The Tennessean six days after his son’s birth. “So it does put things in perspective, especially after a tough game. It’s been a lot of fun.”
While Fisher is pitching in with his share of diaper duty, the athlete does admit he relies heavily on Underwood so he can score much-needed shut-eye.
“Yeah, I am [getting sleep], actually,” Fisher said. “My wife is a trouper. It’s been awesome. It’s been really cool.”
