Carrie Underwood finally photographs left side of her face after gruesome accident
Carrie Underwood and her husband took a selfie to support the End It Movement against modern day slavery, and it was a first for the singer since her fall last year.
Carrie Underwood, 34, posted a selfie with her husband Mike Fisher on Instagram on February 24, three months after she received between 40 and 50 stitches to her face following a nasty fall down the steps of her home in Nashville, Tennessee. She also suffered a broken wrist as a result of the fall, and has remained out of the public eye ever since, recuperating in privacy.
Underwood has continued to remain active to some extent on social media, but a photo of her working out with her two-year-old Isaiah had her turning her face away from the camera to hide the injury. According to reports, the singer had not revealed the severity of her injury to her fans, but she was reportedly healing better than expected.
Underwood herself said, "I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful. I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way."
She continued, "I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way. And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different," explaining why she hadn't posted any pictures that showed her scars or her injuries.
In the Instagram photo, Underwood can be seen holding up a large red X that obscures the lower half of her face. Any scars have been obscured, but it appears that the top half of her face is unmarred. Her husband, Fisher, is standing beside her, holding his fist up with a red X painted on the back. The explanation for the red X's was given next to the post.
The caption read, "Together, we’re in it to end it! Help us shine a light on modern day slavery. @enditmovement #enditmovement."
The End It Movement calls for an end to modern slavery and brings attention to the millions of people who are trapped in bonded labor, exploited, enslaved, and trafficked. The movement seeks to give a voice to the people who are silenced and treated as commodities.
