For nearly five years, Carrie Underwood and her husband, NHL star Mike Fisher, were a team of two.

That changed, of course, when they welcomed son Isaiah Michael last February.

Your marriage does change a lot when you have a baby — it’s a whole new dynamic,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Neither one of us had really been baby people or been around a ton of babies. We’re learning together.”

The singer, whose new album Storyteller (preorder it here), is out Oct. 23, admits that the added bustle of parenthood can make date-night time a challenge.

It’s been 10 years since Carrie Underwood won American Idol — and the singer admits that back then, she wasn’t always happy with how she looked.

“I knew that I weighed more than I had ever weighed before,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

“But then as soon as you start making little tweaks, people immediately go, ‘You look so great!’ Then you start wondering, ‘How bad did I look before?’ Then it’s like, ‘Well, I guess I should keep on going.’ Then you start eating less.”

Underwood, 32, admits that she turned to weight-loss supplements to slim down.

“I was taking things with ephedra in it,” she says. “It wasn’t the best way. If I could go back and talk to myself I’d be like, ‘Here’s how you do it the right way.’ ”

Asked if she ever had a problem, she answers, “No, because none of it was intentional, you know? I wasn’t eating enough calories, but it wasn’t because I was trying to starve myself. I just didn’t know how many calories I should be eating.”

She’s a perfectionist onstage, but as a mom, Carrie Underwood is navigating the self-doubt that every parent feels when it comes to having a new baby.

You feel guilty about every single thing, every decision you make, everything you do,” the Grammy-winning superstar, 32, tells PEOPLE in a candid new interview at the Nashville-area cabin she shares with her husband of five years, NHL star Mike Fisher, and their 7-month-old son Isaiah Michael.

When it comes to breast-feeding Isaiah, she says she plans to keep it up for “as long as I can take it. It’s hard. My supply is pretty nil. We have to supplement with formula. I’m doing the best that I can, you know?”

Carrie Underwood may be a seven-time Grammy winner, but she’s still prone to the accidents and scares that come with being a parent.

Nearly two months after her 6-month-old son Isaiah Michael was accidentally locked in the singer’s car, forcing her to break in, Underwood is finally opening up about what really went down.

“It was such a random thing, we were at the airport,” Underwood explains of the terrifying July incident during an interview with Lisa Dent & Ramblin’ Ray on their US99.5 radio show.

The singer and her husband, Nashville Predators player Mike Fisher, left their car on and doors open after parking and exiting the vehicle at the airport, giving one of their pet dogs the perfect opportunity to wreak havoc.

“My husband and I both got out at the same time, and both shut the door at the same time, and immediately one of our dogs — I still don’t know what one it was — jumped up on the control panel on the door,” she says.  “[We] heard the thing click, and I was like, ‘The doors locked, the doors locked, the doors locked.’ ”

Carrie Underwood prepared for the worst while she was pregnant, but baby Isaiah Michael has exceeded all of her expectations.

“I think I honestly expected — it’s gonna sound weird — but I expected the worst,” she tells PEOPLE, fresh off her history-making sweep at Wednesday’s CMT Music Awards. “I’ve never been around babies before, to be honest, but he’s so laid-back!”

The country singer says both she and husband Mike Fisher have been pleasantly surprised by how easily the three and a half months since their son’s birth have gone.

“We’re laid-back parents and he’s a laid-back baby and … it surprised me that it’s a little easier than I thought it was gonna be,” Underwood, 32, says. “I think I just expected, like, screaming, crying baby all the time, and he’s just happy and smiley and gorgeous.”
