See Carrie Underwood Use Her Baby Bump As a Snack Tray

01/23/2015 at 10:00 AM ET

Who cares about swollen ankles, heartburn and sleepless nights when you have your own built-in snack table?

Just ask the ever resourceful Carrie Underwood, who posted an adorable photo on Twitter of her baby bump pulling double duty as a table.

“Pregnancy perk: using my belly as a tabletop for my snacks! Nom nom nom…” she Tweeted on Thursday. (Bonus points if you can spot the Ace cameo in the background!)

The singer, who is expecting her first child (a boy!) with husband Mike Fisher this spring, announced her pregnancy in similar fashion this past September, posting a photo of herself on Twitter with her beloved dogs Ace and Penny wearing shirts that said, “I’m going to be a big sister” and “I’m going to be a big brother.”

Although Underwood’s pal Brad Paisley got to spill the beans about his CMA Awards co-host having a boy at the show in November, the mom-to-be, 31, and Fisher found out they were having a son in a much more private setting.

Opting to not hear the news in the “sterile” environment of a doctor’s office, the couple made a date night out of it and opened the envelope containing the baby’s sex while out at a local restaurant.

I think this is a very sweet, normal pregnancy picture. I mean, her hair is just down, old faded tshirt, chilling on the couch eating chex mix. Its nice to see the normalcy sometimes, IMO.
