Jacob is the second child for Carrie and Mike who are also parents to 3-year-old Isaiah. If you swipe through the photos in her Instagram post above, you can see the sweet moment Isaiah and Jacob met for the first time. So adorable!
In an interview on CBS Sunday Morning shortly after revealing that she was expecting, the singer shared that she had suffered three miscarriages before prior to this pregnancy. The heartbreak made for a trying year for Carrie who was also recovering from a devastating fall that left her with nearly 50 stitches in her face. The trials were the inspiration for her comeback single “Cry Pretty,” a song that speaks about the difficulty of putting on a smile you’re hurting.
“Throughout the whole process, you know, I’m writing and, like, literally right after finding out that I would lose a baby, I’d have a writing session, I’d be like, ‘Let’s go. You know, I can’t just sit around thinking about this. Like, I wanna work, I wanna do this,'” Carrie told CBS News. “‘Cause I would literally have these horrible things going on in my life, and then have to go smile and, like, do some interviews or, like, do a photo shoot or something, you know? So it was just kind of, like, therapeutic, I guess.”
The “Jesus, Take the Wheel” singer was candid about the moment she cried out to God after thinking she was suffering a fourth miscarriage.
“Mike was away just for the evening, and I texted him, and I was like, ‘I don’t really want to be alone, so I’m just gonna go snuggle with Isaiah.’ And I don’t know how I didn’t wake him up, but I was just sobbing,” Underwood said. “And I was like, ‘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.'”
Two days later, Carrie went to the doctor and was told that the baby was fine! Shortly after, she took to Instagram to share the news with her fans, saying, “Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond.
