Carrie Underwood, 38, has made the shocking revelation that she suffered from three miscarriages in the last two years. The 'Cry Pretty' singer, who shares her three-year-old son Isaiah with hockey player husband Mike Fisher and has a baby on the way, opened up about her fertility struggles in an interview on 'CBS Sunday Morning' saying she experienced the first miscarriage last year.
“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,” said the 35-year-old Underwood. “We got pregnant early 2017, and it didn’t work out.”
At the time, Underwood turned to her faith. "And that was the thing, in the beginning, it was like, 'Okay, God, we know this is... It just wasn’t Your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it.'"
In 2018, Underwood suffered a third miscarriage. The songstress confessed: "At that point, it was just kind of like, ‘Okay, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?'”
“I had always been afraid to be angry,” Underwood explained of her reaction to the heartbreak on CBS. “Because we are so blessed. And my son Isaiah is the sweetest thing. 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.”
When she thought she might be suffering a fourth miscarriage, “I got mad,” Underwood said.
Telling the CBS News' Tracy Smith, she said one of her most emotional moments came as she cuddled her son and thought, “Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid.”
“And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt,” she added. “That was like a Saturday — and the Monday I went to the doctor to confirm another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great!”
She concluded, “He heard me.”
