A year prior, Underwood and Fisher got to spend lots of time with each other and their kids during the pandemic.

"Most of our family lives in Oklahoma and Canada, so we usually spend a lot of time during the holidays traveling," she told People in November 2020. "For all of the challenges this year has presented, it's been a surprisingly busy and productive time, and we are very grateful for all we do have."

She continued, "For most of the time since lockdown, we were able to spend a lot of time outside, which I think was a godsend for all of us," adding, "The boys and I did a lot of gardening together, which I love."
