Something to sing about! Carrie Underwood shares two sons with her husband, Mike Fisher, and loves gushing about her little guys.
The American Idol season 4 winner gave birth to the couple’s eldest, Isaiah, in February 2015. “Tiny hands and tiny feet. God has blessed us with an amazing gift!” the country singer captioned her March 2015 Instagram reveal. “Isaiah Michael Fisher — born on February 27. Welcome to the world, sweet angel!”
The Oklahoma native’s news came six months after she announced that she and the professional ice hockey player, who wed in 2010, were starting a family together.
The pair welcomed their second child, Jacob, in January 2019. Fisher posted a picture of the newborn at the time, writing via Instagram: “You are a gift from our Lord! The last few years has had its challenges and it makes this moment even more sweet! We didn’t know if Izzy would ever have another sibling but we learned through it all that God is in control and His timing is perfect! He is good all the time even in the difficult times that are hard to understand.”
He and the “Before He Cheats” singer “have always wanted a little girl,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively in May 2019, but Underwood is loving life with her sons for now. “She attends school functions and sports games,” the insider went on to tell Us. “She’s a regular PTA mom.”
When it comes to raising the boys, Underwood and Fisher are a great team. “They balance each other out,” the source revealed at the time. “Carrie tells her friends how lucky she is.”
A second source gushed to Us the previous year: “Carrie and Mike have a great life and a very strong marriage — one that their friends envy. They are completely committed to each other and in it for the long run.”
Underwood enjoyed hanging at home with her children amid the coronavirus pandemic, telling Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she got “back to [her] roots.”
The songwriter called herself “very lucky” in the December 2020 interview. “I do have two incredible boys and my husband, and we live on a farm, and I kind of got to maybe get back to some of my roots boy not being on stage for a minute,” Underwood said at the time. “I got to be outside so much and I got to work in the garden and just be a mom and be a wife and be at home. It’s the most I’ve been still in over 15 years.”

Isaiah “rarely” cried as a newborn. Underwood told Ellen DeGeneres in October 2015: “He’s the sweetest and smiliest baby, I think, ever. So, that’s a blessing when you’re waking up at 3 in the morning. When he’s smiling at you, that makes it not so bad.”
“He mimics right now,” she told Us of Isaiah in May 2016. “He’s really been into whatever you say. If you get frustrated and say, ‘Ugh,’ he’ll go, ‘Ugh.’ … He makes me happy all day every day. He’s adorable and he’s smart and he’s sweet. I am beyond lucky. I don’t deserve him.”
Underwood suffered multiple miscarriages between her sons’ births, explaining on CBS Sunday Morning in September 2018: “I got mad. … 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. ‘And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt. I went to the doctor to, like, confirm, another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great!”
She told Us exclusively in October 2018 about “working and dividing” her time as a working mom, saying, “Balance is what it’s all about.”
Welcome to the World
“Jacob Bryan Fisher entered the world in the wee hours of the morning on Monday,” Underwood wrote on Instagram in January 2019. “His mom, dad and big brother couldn’t be happier for God to trust them with taking care of this little miracle! Our hearts are full, our eyes are tired and our lives are forever changed. Life is good.”
The American Music Award winner had a “difficult” time “bouncing back” after giving birth to her second son. She explained on Instagram in March 2019: “I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. I go into the gym and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again…for my body to feel the way that I know it can.”
So sweet! “Thanks to the nice lady who offered to buy me a drink at lunch today after I carried my naked, poo covered, screaming baby up the stairs and back to my table,” Underwood tweeted in March 2019. “It was a rookie mistake leaving the diaper bag at the table and only taking a diaper and 2 wipes. Never again.”
“This morning my 4-year-old, who hates wearing jeans, asked to wear jeans so he could ‘look cute for Maddie [Marlow],’” the singer wrote of her son’s crush in May 2019. “He also asked me to fix his hair and to get him some flowers that he could give to her. Don’t you break his heart @MaddieMarlow.”
Underwood gushed over Jacob on his 1st birthday, writing via Instagram: “You are smiley, crazy, smart, soooo fast and into everything! And, apparently, you love cake! I can’t wait to see your personality continue to shine! I have a good feeling you’re going to keep us all on our toes for years to come! I thank God for you each and every day. You are truly our miracle baby! Mommy loves you!”
“Soooo apparently I’m 70 and I’m really good at doing the laundry,” the Grammy winner captioned a photo of her eldest son’s hilarious “All About My Mom” worksheet in February 2020.
“For my body to not be doing something it was ‘supposed to do’ was a tough pill to swallow,” the Grammy winner told Women’s Health of her miscarriages in March 2020. “It reminded me I’m not in control of everything.” Underwood went on to say that speaking of her losses was a “weight off,” adding, “It’s not a dirty secret. It’s something many women go through.”
“You are important,” the Find Your Path author said of working out as a mom during a March 2020 Today show appearance. “If you don’t have your balance, everything else is out of balance.”
“The entire time I was making Cry Pretty, I was going through [my miscarriages],” Underwood told Parade in March 2020. “For a year and a half plus, that was my world, and it felt like some secret I wasn’t supposed to talk about. But that’s what you do as a songwriter, you open your heart in the form of music and you talk about it. The response that I’ve received from women, it’s helpful to know that you’re not alone. That they’ve experienced the same things you have.”
Underwood posted a smiling selfie in April 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic with a sign reading, “#IStayHome for my boys.”
The singer showed off “mornings at the Fisher house” in April 2020, sharing a picture of her husband flying their sons around like airplanes.
While attending the American Music Awards in November 2019, Underwood praised her family. “My list of things I’m thankful for is too vast,” she explained. “First and foremost, my family. We had a baby earlier this year, which is crazy to think about all of the things that we’ve done and thinking about starting off this year pregnant and having a baby and all of the places that he’s already seen. I’m thankful for health and we’ve had safety along all of our travels.”
