Carrie Underwood is just like any other new mum who is desperately trying to juggle her old life with her new!
The 33 year old Grammy award winning singer, who is mum to 1 year old son Isaiah with husband Mike Fisher, opened up recently for Redbook magazine on how she balances motherhood with her hectic work life.
“Ask for help. Accepting help is hard for me, but I’m learning,” she says. “Sometimes I feel guilty that this is my son’s life: We live on a bus and we’re in a hotel room and sometimes we’re in the middle of nowhere and it’s not so great. It’s not all glamorous.”
“We have a nanny who helps out, especially when we’re on the road,” she adds. “But I’d feel guilty asking someone to watch him at home while I run to the grocery store.”
Ever since the couple welcomed Isaiah last February, Underwood couldn’t be happier about her life as a mother.
“I definitely feel like it’s changed me as a person. I’m happier,” she says. “I’m in a better mood a lot of the time. He’ll be watching cartoons and I’ll be watching him. I’m completely in love. I love it when he’s sleepy and I get to hold him and smell him. He doesn’t know I’m staring at him and being all googly-eyed!”
While Underwood may have her hands full with one child at the moment she is definitely thinking of more babies with her 36 year old hockey player husband.
“If my husband were at the beginning of his career, I’m not sure we could handle it,” she admits. “Since he’s kind of nearing the end and won’t be traveling so much, we’re like, ‘We can figure it out for not that long.’ You make it work.”
“When I was pregnant, I thought, How am I going to go on the road? How am I going to keep doing my job?” she recalls. “I had to just give it to God and stop worrying about it. Sure enough, we figured it out.”
