“The delivery was long, but there were no complications,” the insider says. “The road to having this baby was so difficult emotionally and physically on both Mike and Carrie, so to have Jacob come home happy and healthy really fills them with immeasurable joy.”

The “Cry Pretty” singer, 35, and the former NHL player, 38, endured numerous hardships in the years before Jacob’s arrival. In September, the season four American Idol winner opened up about suffering three miscarriages after the birth of their first son, Isaiah, in 2015. Then, in the midst of her fertility struggles, a fall at her Nashville home in 2017 left Underwood with a broken wrist and needing “between 40 and 50 stitches” in her face.
