Country music powerhouse Carrie Underwood graces the cover of Redbook‘s November issue with her pup Ace and also delivers a refreshingly candid interview. The “Dirty Laundry” singer-songwriter discusses expanding her family with husband Mike Fisher, raising 19-month-old son Isaiah, and balancing her busy career with her personal life.
Yes, Carrie and Mike are bouncing around the idea of adding another Lil’ Fisher to the mix, “If my husband were at the beginning of his career, I’m not sure we could handle it. Since he’s kind of nearing the end and won’t be traveling so much, we’re like, “We can figure it out for not that long.” You make it work. When I was pregnant, I thought, How am I going to go on the road? How am I going to keep doing my job? I had to just give it to God and stop worrying about it. Sure enough, we figured it out,” Carrie reflected.
Of course Carrie’s life on the road can feel like a circus at times, but she has learned something valuable. “Ask for help. Accepting help is hard for me, but I’m learning. Sometimes I feel guilty that this is my son’s life: We live on a bus and we’re in a hotel room and sometimes we’re in the middle of nowhere and it’s not so great. It’s not all glamorous. We have a nanny who helps out, especially when we’re on the road. But I’d feel guilty asking someone to watch him at home while I run to the grocery store,” the songstress revealed.
The popular entertainer also discussed how her son Isaiah has changed her for the better, “I definitely feel like it’s changed me as a person. I’m happier. I’m in a better mood a lot of the time. He’ll be watching cartoons and I’ll be watching him. I’m completely in love. I love it when he’s sleepy and I get to hold him and smell him. He doesn’t know I’m staring at him and being all googly-eyed!”
