Just days after the release of her album, Cry Pretty, Carrie Underwood is opening up about a series of miscarriages that she’s dealt with over the past two years. In speaking with CBS Sunday Morning, the country superstar shared that she and husband, Mike Fisher, suffered three losses since early 2017.
2017 just wasn’t how I’d imagined it. I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby. We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.” Underwood shared through tears. “Got pregnant again in the Spring and it didn’t work out, got pregnant again early 2018, and it didn’t work out.
She admits that the song, “Cry Pretty,” was about dealing with those troubled times and putting a face on for the world. She admits that she felt guilty for feeling angry, but that she struggled with anger.
“Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid?” Underwood admits she prayed to God, while cuddling with her son, Isaiah. At that time, she was concerned of another miscarriage, but discovered that she was, in fact, pregnant. Underwood feels God heard her prayers during that terrible time.
Underwood recently announced her pregnancy in an adorable video, and admits that “things are looking better.”
