Carrie Underwood Says She Endured 3 Miscarriages in 2 Years
Seven-time Grammy winner Carrie Underwood revealed on Sept. 16 during a CBS interview that that she went through three miscarriages in the last two years. The 35-year-old singer is married to hockey player Mike Fisher, and they celebrated their eighth anniversary on July 10 on social media. “I love you today more than yesterday...which was more than the day before,” she wrote. They already have a 3-year-old boy, Isaiah Fisher. Underwood said Isaiah is the "sweetest thing" and she is so blessed with an incredible husband, job and friends. However, 2017 was a tough year for Underwood. She had her first two miscarriages, then she fell outside her home onto her face in November. She had to get more than 40 stitches and also broke her wrist. In early 2018, she had another miscarriage. Finally, when she became pregnant once again, she thought she was having a fourth miscarriage. "I got mad," Underwood said. She said she began to pray to God in a way she had never done before. She was honest about her feelings. “He heard me,” Underwood said with gratitude shortly afterward. Her doctor soon confirmed that her baby was healthy and the pregnancy was going well. She announced the news on Aug. 8. "Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond," Underwood said in a video on Twitter, where she also talked about her new album “Cry Baby” and 2019 tour. Although Underwood sang in church since she was a three years old, she had no formal training in voice or singing. At the age of 21, she auditioned for American Idol with the song “Can’t Make You Love Me,” and she went on to win Season 4 of the competition in 2005. She debuted her first album “Some Hearts” that same year. In the past, the talented young woman also participated in beauty pageants in high school and college. At Northeastern State University, she was selected as Miss NSU runner-up in 2004. Two years later, she graduated from NSU with a degree in mass communications. However, even with all these accomplishments, Underwood thinks her greatest goal is simply to be a good person. “Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it. I've always loved volunteering. I love making music and all that, but at the end of the day I don't think that's what people are going to remember about a person,” she said. Underwood also started the Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation (C.A.T.S.) Foundation to give back to her hometown community in Oklahoma and also supports many other charities. iHeartRadio has predicted that Underwood's baby will be born around February 3, 2019.
