It’s no secret that most country fans love them some Carrie Underwood, but according to People Magazine, she’s also one of the top reasons to love America.
In this week’s issue, which hits stands just in time for the 4th of July (when everyone celebrates everything American), People Magazine is putting out their 100 Reasons to Love America issue (not sure if it’s annual, but it should be), and Carrie Underwood is their cover model.
Inside the issue, she talks about the things that have been a big topic in her life for the last couple of years, including her facial surgery after falling at home, the loss of several pregnancies, and the birth of her second son, Jacob.
She says in the midst of her three miscarriages, she struggled with not complaining about what she was going through because, despite everything, she felt extremely blessed.
A devout Christian, Underwood says it was a heart-to-heart talk with God that came next. “I’ve always wanted to be a good daughter to my parents but also to God and not complain, because we are beyond blessed,” she says. “I get to do what I love, I have an incredible family. I have Mike, I have Isaiah, I have great parents. I have all of these amazing people around me, and I don’t want to complain, ever.”
Luckily, everything worked out and Carrie eventually went on to have Jacob in January of this year. Now she has two healthy boys, a handsome husband who seems to treat her like the queen she is, and, of course, a career that’s as strong as ever.
We should all be so lucky.
