Carrie Underwood has been dealing with a very personal issue she is just now talking about for the first time.
The country music star, who is pregnant with her second child, revealed on “CBS Sunday Morning” that she suffered two miscarriages in 2017 and another in 2018.
“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” she told CBS News’ Tracy Smith. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”
She says she relied on her faith to get her through, saying, “And that was the thing, in the beginning, it was like, ‘Okay, God, we know this is, just wasn’t Your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it.'”
Underwood says she tried hard not to be mad about her situation, explaining, “I had always been afraid to be angry because we are so blessed. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he’s the best thing in the world. And I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s okay, because he’s amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.”
When Underwood became pregnant again, she felt as if she was having a fourth miscarriage but a trip to the doctor confirmed everything was great.
Carrie Underwood announced last month that she and hubby Mike Fisher are expecting their second child. Their son Isaiah is three years old.
