Carrie Underwood is blown away: She’s a mom!

The country singer welcomed her first child, a son, with husband Mike Fisher on Friday, Feb. 27, Underwood announced Tuesday on Facebook.

“Tiny hands and tiny feet … God has blessed us with an amazing gift! Isaiah Michael Fisher — born February 27,” the first-time mom captioned a sneak peek of her newborn.

Fisher’s paternity leave was cut short as The Nashville Predators hockey player was back on the ice for a Saturday match in their hometown. But his son’s birth could be his good luck charm: The star forward scored and his team earned yet another win, a possible lock-in for the playoffs despite losing Tuesday night’s game in New Jersey.

“We were excited; there’s nothing better than being a dad. Obviously, the important thing is everyone is feeling good and mom’s feeling good,” Fisher told reporters after the loss. “We’re definitely blessed to have him join us in our lives. There’s no better feeling.”

He added, “It’s easier to put a smile on your face when you mention him after a bad game so that puts things in perspective.”

Underwood, 31, used the family’s furry members — and pink and blue T-shirts — to announce her pregnancy in September.

“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier,” the mom-to-be, who debuted her baby belly days later, captioned the photo.

But it was fellow country star Brad Paisley who spilled the beans on the sex of her baby on the way. “We could name him Garth,” he joked at the CMAs in November.

Despite Paisley’s very public announcement, Underwood and Fisher made sure to keep their own reveal more private. “[It was] just the two of us in a nicer setting, but we both knew,” she said. “So, that was just confirming our suspicions. We didn’t really speak of it before because we were both just like, ‘Whatever. It’s all good.’ But we knew it was a boy.”

With weeks to go until her first child’s arrival, Underwood — who turned to using her baby bump as a snack tray — admitted she and Fisher were still working on a baby name.

“We need to lock that down here pretty soon,” she told PEOPLE in February. “We joke a lot about funny things that go with Fisher, but there’s not some family name that I have had to be like, ‘No! That’s terrible!’ ”

As for Fisher, 34, his focus was preparing for his future as a father. “It’s something we’re really looking forward to. I’m just thinking about wanting to be the best dad I can be,” he said.

OMG Mindy.. Really?? “Looks like he has daddy’s chin”. Why do you even have to open your mouth! A baby is a baby and all babies are sweet! Why the comparison of a facial feature ????

I think the baby will be gorgeous!

She just missed having a leap year baby. I would have been so pissed!

Janie on

Congrats Mike and Carrie on the birth of sweet Isaiah.

bb on

Wow, they are so sneaky (in a good way!) since she had the baby last Friday and we are just finding out! Plus, we hardly heard about her pregnancy! Glad they aren’t paparazzi chasers. Love the name, especially having daddy’s name as the middle name.🙂 Congrats to the happy family!

Molly on

Awww! Congratulations! So happy for them!!!!

Guest on

Jane, The only way she missed having a leap year baby was by not having a baby Feb 29, 2014, or Feb 29, 2018…Feb 29 is Leap Day, as it only comes once every 4 years. Feb 28, which I assume you were referring to, comes every year and is therefore not associated with Leap Year more than any other day. I do not mean to offend, it never hurts to learn something new.

Jenna on

Awesome news!!!! I LOVE Carrie Underwood so much! Congratulations, so happy for them!

bkable on

Figured they’d go pretty normal on the name and love the choice!! He’ll be a heartbreaker for sure!

bkable on

Jane, she would have had to hold that baby in for a whole year before she had a chance at a Leap Year Baby…

Proud momma on

We named our first born Isaiah after the Bible. Enjoy your precious blessing from above!!!

Marky on

It’s nice everyone is posting positive things about the arrival of Carrie Underwood’s baby. Wish that could be said about ALL the celebrities giving birth without snide remarks about them or their baby. Celebrate that miracle called birth, no matter who the parents are!!

Congratulations on that miracle Carrie & Mike!!

Rosanne Catalano on

Congratulations to Carrie and Mike!!! I love the name Isaiah for a boy! Wishing all much happiness throughout the years!!

I’m so happy there’s a new citizen of Smashville! Congratulations, Mike and Carrie, and LET’S GO PREDS!

jacket on

the planet just got ickier….

nickname IkeMike

it’s so stupid when people “display” a newborn by showing fingers, toes, ear, or back of head. Newborns are ugly anyway (and yes, I had one, and I loved him, but he was ugly!)

Anonymous on

Um, Jane, 2015 is not a Leap Year. They couldn’t have had a Leap Year baby.

Toni on

Awww….congratulations! Love Isaiah! So happy for them.

Kat on

Yay!!! Love them together! What a beautiful couple and now they have a beautiful baby boy. Love the name too…normal but not boring! Congratulations to the sweet family!!

emma on

Congratulations to you both

Carol on

I wish them the best! She is a wonderful singer and performer. That baby is very lucky!

Mindi on

OMG Guest!! Why did you take my comment that I think he has his daddy’s chin as an insult?! His dad has a long chin and the baby appears to have one as well, I don’t find that unattractive. My husband has a prominent chin and so does my daughter…So what!! You are the one that is being insulting, calm down!

Mindi on

Guest, my comment about the baby appearing to have his daddy’s chin was NOT an insult! My husband has a prominent chin and my daughter has his chin. I find prominent chins attractive, so you are the one that is being insulting! Calm down!

Mindi on

Wow Guest, nowhere in my comment did I say the baby was not attractive! My husband has a prominent chin and our daughter has his chin and I happen to find prominent chins attractive! Your comment is the one that is insulting because you are obviously insinuating that YOU find her husband’s chin to be unattractive, so you assumed I was thinking the same! Calm down!!

Mindi on

Fyi I posted a few times because my comment didn’t show up the first couple times.;) LOL

Stef on

First and foremost, I don’t think celebs ‘owe’ us anything when it comes to their kids. If they want to keep their kids from the paparazzi and being photographed, that is absolutely their right. If they choose to allow the paps to take pics of their kids, well, its much appreciated by those of us who want to see the pictures. That said, and I DO realize this makes me a hypocrite, I hate these pics of the baby’s foot or hand that celebs release to the public! Its such a tease. Either show us the baby or don’t show us. But dont’ tease us! (again..hypocrite…I know)


Callie on

YAY!!! I love the name too. No weird a$$ Hollywood BS name, classy as always

Congrats, love all the dress comments haha

lucasmom on

I love Carrie, and her choice of name is beautiful. They seem like such a down-to-earth couple, and I’m sure they will be hands-on parents.. They’re an adorable and blessed family and must be so happy!

Just Me on

Congrats and so happy for the two of you…Isaiah is a beautiful name for a beautiful family. I hope all is doing well!

robinepowell on

Congrats to Carrie and Mike. What a nice “normal” name they picked for their son.

robinepowell on

Oh for anyone talking about Carrie’s leap year baby, that date would be February 29, 2016. She’d have to wait a year and two days.😉

Evangeline on

Congrats to Carrie for having a baby boy.. Nice name..godbless

Juli on

GORGEOUS name! Congratulations to Carrie and Mike on the birth of baby Isaiah.

Feliciena on

Congratulations to you both. Enjoy your son as the years go by quickly.

That name is god-awful hideous!

Cali lady on

Jacket- I’m sorry but you have major issues! Just because your baby was what you call “ugly”
Doesn’t make it “so” that everyone’s newborn baby is ugly.
I have seen some very beautiful newborns. I think your comment was totally unnecessary and just an attack. Keep your negative rude a$$
Comments to yourself !

Guest on

Mindi- just because you think having a long chin is a good thing, many people may find your comment an insult.
Why couldn’t you just say “aww so sweet” ? Why even throw out that comment anyway? You never said “aw that baby has a beautiful chin like the dad”
You wrote “baby has dads chin”. Anyway I’m fine I’m not even all worked up. You seem more worked up then me.
I’m just telling you that comment you wrote seemed totally insulting the way you worded it.
That’s all.
I’m done I don’t need to go back
And forth with you.

Congratulations to Mike and Carrie. Welcome Isaiah, you have two wonderful parents who will give you so much love.

Guest- Why are you attacking Mindi? Her comment was perfectly innocent. It’s no different than saying, “He’s got mom’s eyes!” or “He has grandpa’s hair!” (or even joking that, “he has grandma’s temper!”).

Anyway, congrats to them!

Anonymous on

jacket- I’m sorry you don’t see the beauty in those types of pictures. And honestly? I think most people have at least one picture of their newborn’s tiny hands/feet somewhere (heck, most baby books even have special pages just for those pictures!).🙂

Ann on

I’m not sure at what picture a couple of you are looking at, but I see her in a dress that is white or off white with gold on one shoulder and gold on the left sleeve by her wrist. I don’t see black and blue.

I’ve been a fan of hers since her first album dropped! my 3rd daughter and her new bundle of joy share the same birthday! ! Woohoo
