Do you think it’s a boy or a girl? Carrie Underwood knows the gender of her second baby, but she’s not ready to reveal it quite yet. During her latest sit-down with TV host Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the country music icon opened up about whether or not she’s having a son or a daughter this time around.
However, the 35-year-old didn’t give us many hints! “We like to kind of just hold onto things for a minute. I feel like everybody just knows everything about everybody, so we just like to have a little secret for a little while,” she revealed on the talk show.
But that didn’t stop Ellen from making her guess — a girl! “When you come back here and we talk about it after it’s a little girl, I’ll say it was a girl,” the 60-year-old quipped. “But you did say it was a whole new ‘ball game’ which indicates it could be a boy. It’s either a girl or a boy… I do think it’s a girl though. I can see it in your eyes.” Perhaps the fact that Carrie came on the show in a pink jacket also helped Ellen’s guess!
Carrie then realized Ellen was being strategic during their convo and potentially even getting Carrie to reveal more without realizing. “It’s a different ball game. I feel like I didn’t look pregnant and then I woke up and I looked like this,” she said of her pregnancy. “So I feel like the second one is just… I feel like you’re just trying to get me to talk about it so I’ll say ‘he’ or ‘she.'”
Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, 38, are already parents to a three-year-old son named Isaiah Fisher, who was born in February 2015. “I think he’ll be a really good big brother. I think he’ll be helpful,” the proud mom sweetly said of her firstborn.
Last month, Carrie took to Instagram to reveal her second pregnancy and confirm she’ll be kicking off her Cry Pretty 360 tour next May. The upcoming concert series actually won’t be the first time the country star has hit the road with a little one — she previously brought Isaiah on her Storyteller tour when he was just 11 months old. This time around, however, Carrie’s second baby will be just a newborn when her tour kicks off next spring.
“It’s going to be a different ball game, for sure. My brain, I’m such a planner. I want to know how it’s all going to go. But no matter who you are, you make it happen, you make it work, you get your team behind you,” she told The Tennessean.
In her pregnancy reveal clip posted to Instagram, Carrie excitedly told her fans and 7.6 million followers that she, Mike, and Isaiah are “over the moon” about expanding their family. “You might be wondering or asking, ‘Carrie, why is your tour starting in May?’ Well… yay!” she said in the video as the camera panned out, revealing the word “baby” spelled out above her in silver letter balloons. “Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond. This has just been a dream come true with [the] album and with baby news and all that stuff. We’re just so excited.” So are we!
