Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher announced they are going to be first time parents.
On Monday, September 1 via Instagram, Carrie Underwood made the announcement of her pregnancy. Her rep also confirmed the news to Us Weekly.
“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier…” Carrie Underwood captioned a photo of herself holding her two dogs, who were wearing “I’m going to be a big sister” and “big brother” outfits.
A source told Us Weekly, “They couldn’t be happier to be starting a family.”
Seems like she’s taking it easy for the first two trimesters of her pregnancy. Earlier this summer, Carrie Underwood told the Hollywood Reporter, “I’ve been writing a lot. It feels really good. It’s just a progression, a different sound without losing myself in it. I’m not taking some crazy musical departure from what I’ve done, but it definitely feels different. It will feel different, look different, sound different.”
There’s no word yet on an exact due date, but it will be sometime this Spring.
Since her and Fisher have been married, they often get questions about family plans. “I don’t feel old enough to have kids,” she told Marie Claire in April 2013. “I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?” That same month, she told E! News the pressure was on. “It comes around every once in a while when a friend gets pregnant, we kind of revisit it,” Underwood said. “But we’ll see. I don’t think there will ever be a great time to have kids, so we might just have to go for it at some point.”
Carrie Underwood will be co-hosting the upcoming Country Music Association Awards with Brad Paisley this November.
Husband, NHL Mike Fisher, a 34-year-old center for the Nashville Predators, is recovering from a ruptured left Achilles tendon and is expected to miss the start of the season.
