Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher had planned to have two kids close together, but things didn't work out that way for the celebrity couple. After having their son Isaiah in February of 2015, Underwent went on to suffer three miscarriages before giving birth to their second child, Jacob, in January.

Underwood talked briefly to PEOPLE Magazine about that experience.

“We initially in our lives kind of wanted our kids a little closer in age,” she told the outlet in the latest issue of the magazine. “That didn’t happen, because God has a different plan sometimes.”

The 36-year-old country star had her first miscarriage early in 2017, then a second one later that year. She suffered her third one in 2018.

She spoke to The Guardian earlier this year about going through all of that.

“I guess you wait for things to stop hurting at some point,” Underwood said. “But letting yourself go there ... other people that are going through the same thing. It kind of connects you to them. I will always mourn those children, those lives that were a shooting star, a breath of smoke, but I have Jacob, and he is incredible. He is the sweetest little baby. At the time it was awful, and it still hurts, but it’s kind of like 'OK, I have this.'”

“It’s something that people don’t really talk about,” she continued. “Even people who are my friends and I know well, after I talked about it were like, ‘My gosh, me too!’ And I feel like it’s something I should have known about them.”

Elsewhere in her PEOPLE interview, she talked about what a big helper Isaiah is becoming as an older brother.

“Being almost 5 years old, he’s just so helpful, and he looks out for his little brother,” she said. “And he’s good at [obliging] when you ask him to do something; he’s a very task-oriented child. So if you ask him to do something, he wants to feel helpful and he wants to do it and be a part of things.”

She went on to say that he still needs to figure out what Santa should bring him this week.

“I was telling him recently, ‘We need to sit down and write a letter to Santa,’ because then I feel like he needs to lock in what he wants Santa to bring him. So we’re going to have to do that,” she said.
