Getting candid. Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher opened up about the country singer’s struggles with miscarriages in a new series about their lives as parents. The “Love Wins” songstress got extremely emotional alongside the former NHL star as they recalled losing three pregnancies throughout 2017.
“I just had an honest conversation with God. I was hurt … and I told him how I felt,” Carrie, 37, shared while holding back tears in a trailer for their four-part show, Mike and Carrie: God & Country, produced by the faith-based media organization I Am Second.
Mike, 39, and the Grammy winner — who are the doting parents of sons Isaiah, 5, and Jacob, 16 months — explained how the unfortunate losses were heartbreaking for their family.
“[Carrie] was like, ‘I lost the baby.’ And I was like, ‘Again?'” the Canadian hockey player painfully remembered. “You have all these mountaintops … but we hadn’t had a ton of valleys like this.”
The American Idol alum — who tied the knot with Mike in 2010 — first talked about her experiences with miscarriages in September 2018. Carrie revealed the couple struggled to conceive more children following eldest son Isaiah’s birth in 2015.
“We got pregnant early 2017 and it didn’t work out. Yeah, it happens. And that was the thing, in the beginning, it’s like, OK, God, we know that this just wasn’t your timing and that is alright, we will bounce back and figure our way through it,” Carrie explained on CBS Sunday Morning at the time. “And then we got pregnant in the spring and it didn’t work out. Got pregnant again in early 2018, didn’t work out. So at that point, it was kinda like, OK, what’s the deal?”
In their upcoming series, which is set to premiere on May 27, the doting mom and dad also talked about the birth of their beloved kiddos. The “Before He Cheats” singer said she never imagined herself becoming a mom because she “was never good with other people’s kids.”
“Why would I be good with one of my own?” Carrie joked. However, that all changed when Isaiah arrived. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m in love,'” she sweetly reminisced.
Mike noted he “always wanted lots of kids,” so he couldn’t help but marvel at experiencing fatherhood for the first time. “I went with Isaiah after he had just been born,” the handsome hunk gushed. “I was just as emotional as could be.”
Considering the ACM winner was devastated over the loss of her little ones, she couldn’t have been more excited to welcome baby Jacob in January 2019. At the time, a source close to the longtime lovebirds dished how Mike and the blonde beauty were feeling after expanding their brood.
“Carrie can’t believe how blessed she is,” an insider exclusively shared with Closer Weekly. “This is a great time for Carrie and Mike, and they’re going to cherish every single moment.”
