Carrie Underwood Reveals Heartaches She Has Experienced Recently
Cailyn Finkel 9/17/2018
Carrie Underwood is a mental and emotional soldier. She's been through more in the past year than most go through their entire lifetime. After an accident that left her with dozens of stitches in her face and a great deal of pain in her heart, Carrie was able to bounce back and announce a nationwide tour.
But it was the news she released moments after the announcement of her tour that really got fans talking. Now Carrie's speaking out about the tough road to her happiness today and how far she's come...
Fighting back tears, Carrie told "CBS Sunday Morning" that 2017 was definitely a rocky one. She had assumptions it would be a blockbuster year for her professional and personal life - but it took a nosedive instead. In the first few months, Carrie became pregnant and, shortly after, lost the baby.
"2017 just wasn't how I 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 it didn't work out."
Sadly, that wasn't the first miscarriage Carrie would endure. Through the remainder of the year and into 2018, Carrie suffered two more devastating miscarriages. It seemed as though her world was crashing down around her - and her emotional state only got worse following her accident in November 2017.
Carrie said these few months were one of the hardest periods in her life. She could barely crack a smile at home, let alone in front of the invasive flashing cameras.
"I would literally have these horrible things going on in my life and then have to go smile and do some interviews or photoshoots."
There were nights when Carrie curled up next to her son, Isaiah, and cried herself to sleep. Carrie wondered why God would give her so much hope only to steal it away from her, over and over again. But, it was a few months after her third miscarriage when Carrie thought she was going through it all a fourth time. How would this happen again?
Frustrated, Carrie sat down and had a heart-to-heart with God. She vented all of her frustrations and asked Him for guidance during this period. His answer was enough to bring her tears.
"Isaiah is the sweetest thing. And he's the best thing in the world. And I'm like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that's okay, because he's amazing.' And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can't. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No...
And for the first time, I feel like I actually told God how I felt. That was like a Saturday - and the Monday I went to the doctor to, like, confirm another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great."
The power of His love was enough to heal her soul, mind and heart. Now she and her husband, Mike Fisher, are expecting their second child. Instead of breaking the news to her fans in a normal manner, Carrie decided to couple it with the announcement of her Cry Pretty Tour 360.
Smiling into the camera, Carrie asked:
"You might be wondering or asking, 'Carrie, why is your tour starting in May?'"
That's when the camera panned out to reveal four big metallic balloons spelling out the word "B-A-B-Y." We can't wait to see her life bloom and her family grow - she deserves nothing but the best!
