Carrie Underwood: I Still Can’t Believe I’m Having a Baby

Earlier this month, Carrie Underwood announced that she and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, are expecting their first child — and apparently the big news is still soaking in for the singer.

“It’s still kind of weird, to be honest,” Underwood, 31, said Friday on the Today show.

“Sometimes I’ll be with my husband, and it’s like, ‘I’m gonna be a mom. You’re gonna be a dad. Is this real life?’ But we’re really excited.”

As far as what kind of mom she’ll be, Underwood hopes the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. “I have a wonderful mother,” she said. “If I can be even a little bit like that, I think we’ll be good.”

Underwood also revealed big music news. She’s releasing a new single, “Something in the Water,” off her first Greatest Hits album, due out Dec. 9.

Said Underwood of the new tune: “It’s really a joyous, uplifting song about changing your life for the better.”

I’m not too fond of her, but I think it’s lovely that’s she’s expecting. She’s quite pretty actually

Ok, I’m done

Love them both. So happy for them.🙂

I wish her all the happiness in the world, but she has never seemed genuine about anything. Maybe it’s just me, but she seems as fake as a $3 bill.

@ Leah, well done for someone who is not too fond of her. Thanks for not bashing her and/or making rude comments and thereby ticking off those of us who do really like her and are happy for her and her husband🙂

I cannot even imagine the chin the poor little baby will have with two huge chinned parents like these two have. If they don’t show the baby in public you’ll know the reason why.

dawn on

They are such a cute couple.

Enjoy. It’s going to sink in soon enough.

I just don’t like her. I guess I just feel like she’s too fake! She’s beautiful and I’m sure her baby will be as well, but just feel like her fame has gone to her head!! Happy for them, just not a fan!

Actually Leah isn’t too far off. So many people know of this woman to be insufferable,sorry. I hope the child isn’t affected by their mothers attitude. I heard her hubby is a sweetheart though.

Okay, what does everyone have against Carrie Underwood? She seems very sweet and down-to-earth to me!🙂

I swear, a pregnant reincarnation of Mother Theresa would get grief with some posters on here. Tsk tsk tsk….

I watched her go from rags to riches on American Idol. I was drawn to her from the beginning because her incredible voice is undeniable. Don’t know if she’s really insufferable or genuine but who cares? I buy her music because it’s some of the best music out there; not because of her personality.

She is so beautiful, has one of the most angelic and powerful voices, and has made herself a household name with her successful record sales not only in country but in the music industry in general, and she’ and her handsome husband are now expecting a baby. If i wasn’t such a fan of hers and think she deserves all the success she’s getting, I would be green with envy!

Vas on

She is a great singer and have a great voice!
