Carrie Underwood feels blessed to have her family.
As Mother’s Day approaches, Underwood reminisced on what she would do for her mother as a child.
“We don’t really have like any Mother’s Day traditions,” she admitted. “I feel like I remember me and Dad making breakfast for Mom like once as a kid. I’m pretty sure we just made a giant mess in the kitchen and we never did that again.”
Now that she is a mother to two sons, she experiences the holiday from the other side. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher’s boys, 6-year-old Isaiah Michael and 2-year-old Jacob Bryan, have already become quite the gentlemen. Isaiah already knows how to melt his mother’s heart.
“I obviously don’t expect anything, but my husband’s really good at getting presents from quote-unquote Isaiah. It’s really sweet because he likes to bring me things,” she shared. “He’s such a sweet little guy, and anytime he’s outside, he’ll pick me flowers and things. So, I’m like, ‘You’re learning. You’ve already got me wrapped around your finger, and then you do stuff like that, and it’s even more so.’”
Carrie Underwood on Motherhood
Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher wed on July 10, 2010. Almost five years later, the couple welcomed their first child, Isaiah in 2015.
“It’s kind of crazy to think, sometimes… I’ll literally look at my husband and be like, ‘We have two sons. We have two kids. We live on a farm.’ Like it’s just weird to think how life turns out sometimes,” she shared.
Underwood confessed that life is “very different” with two children. The couple welcomed Jacob in 2019 and life hasn’t been the same for the family. Isaiah has been “super helpful” and sweet to his parents and adores his younger brother.
“We kind of got out of that baby stage with Isaiah. He’s much more self-efficient, and he can brush his own teeth and put his own clothes on, and he’s making decisions for himself,” she said. “Then we start all over with the little squishy one again. It’s just kind of crazy. You forget how hard it is, to be honest, but you just figure your way through it.”
Being a Mother on the Road
Carrie Underwood first took her eldest on her 92-date Storyteller Tour in 2016. She told People that it is a “balancing act” trying to perform and then take care of her child. She revealed at the time that they live primarily on the tour bus instead of hotel rooms.
“My bus is outfitted for him — he has a crib in the back, and everything is safe there,” she added of then-18-month-old Isaiah. “That’s a whole other thing — when you’re in a hotel, they probably wonder why I put the big plant in the closet. It’s because he’ll grab it.”
On days off, they find family tourist attractions like parks, zoos, aquariums, and farmer’s markets. Somehow, she manages to juggle it all and make it work.
