Carrie Underwood Gives Her Unborn Baby Private Concerts

12/09/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

While Carrie Underwood is pregnant with her first child, her unborn baby boy has got the best seats in the house.

“I feel like he hears me singing whether he would like that or not,” Underwood, 31, told Jimmy Fallon on Monday. “I mean, that’s what I do. He doesn’t have a choice.”

Given his lack of choice in the matter, Underwood has been trying to show her baby some love by making sure that her singing is on point — at all times.

“If I’m just in my car, driving, I feel like I have to make it good because,” she continued in a whisper, “he’s listening. He’s always in there.”

She added: “I just want to do a good job for him!”

Underwood’s husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, should probably abstain from concerts of his own, however.

When asked whether Fisher, 34, sings, Underwood hedged: “He does. Like that. Singing. … He doesn’t actually know the real lyrics to any song. Except for when, like, ‘Whoomp There It Is’ will come on the radio.”

Meanwhile, Fisher has no idea what his wife’s current single is, nor any of the real lyrics to her songs, Underwood jokes.

The happy couple broke the news of their upcoming bundle of joy in September, not long after they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary in July.

Underwood’s baby bump made its big debut at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, one week after the announcement.

Lol sounds like my husband. He literally does not know the correct words to any song. Maybe the Star Spangled Banner??

Love love love her! She’s so refreshing and funny, not to mention drop-dead gorgeous and talented.

This cracks me up because it so reminds me of how I feel. I too am a singer and no matter what, it’s like you cannot even help it. You are just always singing. And with that, obviously your baby is hearing it all the time too whether they enjoy it or not. Oopsie lol. But when it comes to my husband. He’s not the best with lyrics and in fact, he’s actually a horrible singer. He’ll openly laugh and admit he cannot carry a tune in a bucket. We joke about it often as I’m sure Carrie does with Mike. But I love him endlessly nonetheless. Hearing someone as influential as Carrie Underwood say these things reminds you that they really are just everyday normal people too. And we all, though we are strangers to one another carry so many similarities. Cute interview.

Does her hair move?

I sang to my bellies all the time too and my kids love music, singing and dancing. My husband has a good voice but feels silly singing I think cause he never does it or if he does he gets shy rather quickly. OH and to Eddie who asked if her hair moves? I would assume NO, she’s a Country singer so big hair that stays put goes with the terratory…right?? Anyhoo, I love her hair and makeup she always looks great.

Sorry, folks in People’s Desperate-for-Snooze Department. EVERY mother gives her unborn baby “private concerts.”
…“he’s listening. He’s always in there.” This is usually the case.

Love her! She is a so talented singer.
