Grammy-winning singer Carrie Underwood made two big announcements on Aug. 8: She's going on a 2019 North American tour in support of her Cry Pretty album and she's pregnant with her second child. Underwood and her hockey-player husband, Mike Fisher, married in 2010, and their son Isaiah was born in 2015.
Underwood posted this video message on Instagram: "Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond. This has just been a dream come true with the album and baby news and all that stuff. We're just so excited and glad you guys can share this with us and be a part of it. Love you guys!"
Underwood did not say when she is due to give birth and if she knows the sex of the child. Cry Pretty, Underwood's sixth album, is set for release on Sept. 14, and the tour kicks off on May 1, 2019. Underwood said the tour was delayed so that it would start after she gave birth.
The news comes not long after Underwood, who is on the cover of Redbook's September 2018 issue, commented to the magazine about plans for having more children: "I’m 35, so we may have missed our chance to have a big family. We always talk about adoption and about doing it when our child or children are a little older. In the meantime, we’re lucky to be a part of organizations that help kids, because our focus right now in our lives is helping as many kids as possible."
The former "American Idol" champ also talked about her much-publicized injuries from a November 2017 accidental fall at her Nashville home that left her with a broken wrist and needing more than 40 to 50 stitches on her face: "Any time someone gets injured, it looks pretty bad in the beginning, and you’re like, 'What is this going to wind up like?' You just don’t know. It was also a perception thing because I look at myself [now] and I see it quite a bit, but other people are like, 'I wouldn’t have even noticed.' Nobody else looks at you as much as you think they do. Nobody notices as much as you think they will, so that’s been nice to learn."
She added, "I’m on some magazine every other week for something crazy. It’s a little sad because the truth is just as interesting. I wish I’d gotten some awesome plastic surgery to make this [scar] look better. But I try not to worry too much about it. My mom will be like, “Did you see they are saying this about you?” And I’ll be like, “Mama, I don’t care. I’m just trying to raise my son and live my life.”
