If you hadn't heard by now, country superstar and past American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood is currently pregnant with baby number 2!
She announced the happy news last month while simultaneously announcing her new tour, which doesn't kick off until May 2019, explaining to fans why the tour is so many months out from when she announced it and when her album was released (today).
But how did Carrie decide when was the right time to announce her second pregnancy to the world?
She opened up about this second pregnancy in a new interview with PopCulture.com and revealed the exact moment that she decided she needed to announce it.
Most women choose to wait until they are at least 12 weeks pregnant to announce their pregnancy to anyone other than their partners and close family members, as the risk of a miscarriage goes down significantly after 12 weeks, but Carrie felt that she wanted to give her and her family just a liiiiittle bit more time of privacy.
“Obviously, you kind of want to reach a point in your pregnancy where you’re sure that everything is going well before you let other people in on it... Stuff like that was important. You don’t want to jump the gun and then have to take it back.”
When she finally did decide to let the world in, though, it was all because of her growing bump starting to really show up.
“I was like, ‘I guess today’s the day. I can’t hide this anymore...' Going to the grocery store and it’s 90-something degrees outside and I’m in giant hoodies. It was just time to put it out there.”
This pregnancy will give Carrie and her husband Mike Fisher's son, Isaiah, who is 3 years old, a little sibling, though we do not yet know the sex of their second child.
Just today, Carrie welcomed a different kind of baby into the world, her latest album, Cry Pretty! She will be at the iHeart Festival in Las Vegas next weekend performing some of the new songs as well as (hopefully!) some of her other iconic hits!
Congratulations to Carrie and her growing family!
