Now that Carrie Underwood has finished hosting the CMA Awards for the eleventh time, chances are good we may be seeing less of her, as she focuses on giving birth to her second son in the very near future.
While her next major event isn’t until next May’s launch of her “Cry Pretty” tour, the Oklahoma native, 35, says there’s really no such thing as taking some time off when you’re a mother.
“I mean, I’m a working mom, working wife, same as all the other ones out there. My job’s kinda weird,” Carrie told reporters last week. “But you just figure your way through it, and women, we ladies are good at that.”
As she held her latest CMA Female Vocalist trophy backstage at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, she got emotional reflecting on the intersection of her career and her family.
“I’m honored to get to hold some pretty incredible titles. Mom is definitely one of them,” Carrie said as she fought back tears.
“And I’m just excited,” she added. “I’m excited that they get to see their mom do that, and see me onstage, and hopefully I can be an inspiration to my children and to other working moms out there, because we got this!”
Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are already parents to 3-year-old Isaiah.
“Love Wins,” Carrie’s second single from her “Cry Pretty” album, is currently making its way up the charts and sits at No. 32 on the Billboard top 100 country songs.
