Carrie Underwood Takes Charge of Child Care in Marriage Because She Feels She’s ‘Supposed To’

Country songstress Carrie Underwood and her husband, former professional hockey player Mike Fisher, welcomed their second baby boy to the world a month ago.

Baby Jacob Bryan was born happy and healthy on January 21, and the couple quickly shared sweet photos of their bundle of joy with fans, Dearly reported.

This week, the dad spoke about raising their new son on his former hockey team’s official podcast, according to PopCulture Media.

He said he’s been amazed watching Underwood raise their children despite her busy schedule. Fisher told the Nashville Predators’ podcast:

“No one works as hard [as her]. You should see her schedule. I’m like, ‘I don’t know how you do what you do, because I thought I had a busy schedule.’ Fortunately we have a few months off, obviously with the newborn. We both love being at home. We’re homebodies. When you travel so much, it gets tough.”

Though Underwood is busy, her husband said that she tries to care for the baby on her own. He added:

“She won’t ask for any help. She wants to do everything on her own. I’m like, ‘It’s OK to ask for help, if you want to sleep,’ and she’s like, ‘No, this is my job. This is what I’m supposed to do.’ She’s a champ that way.”

Fisher said that they plan on moving in the fall, which will be a lot of stress on top of their “sleepless nights.” He explained:

“We moved a little farther out of town, new house in the fall, so I’m still doing stuff to get ready. We’re in it, but there’s always something with moving, and then I have lots of other stuff going on, stuff that I enjoy doing.”

The dad also spoke about their eldest son, 3-year-old Isaiah. He said the toddler is taking after him more than mom and that they often enjoy fishing together:

“I’m hoping he’s going to be a hunter. His mom is definitely hoping he’s not going to be a hunter, so we’ll see.”

The mom will embark on her Cry Pretty Tour 360 in the spring. Until then, the family is trying to get in what quality time they can.

  1. If it is what he wants make him a hunter. I hunted with my husband for almost 50 years before I lost him and I can’t imagine my life otherwise. The only thing that stops me now is I have no one to go with. Teach you children to hunt and fish and they should never go hungry. My daughter is a fishing fol as good as her dad and he was the “fishing magician”

  2. Headline is meant to incite gender role discussion, “parenting should be equally shared”, “supposed to?”, “women don’t have to be the nurturer” and numerous other opinions. Fact: has her husband successfully figured out how to breast feed? Fact: the child just came from INSIDE Carrie’s body, it’s a proven psychological fact; the child needs to bond with its Mother at this time. This is how we end up with crazies in society. Do some research. I’ve seen orphans that were adopted from Viet Nam where no “motherly” attention was given them (holding, rocking, whispers in the ear, affection, etc.) They have severe attachment issues, rages, and social anxiety. Mothers stay with your child as long as you can, I know there are working Moms who have to go back, unfortunately.
