Congratulations to Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher! The two welcomed their second child, a boy named Jacob Bryan Fisher, in the “wee hours” of Monday morning, Jan. 21.
Underwood shared several photos of her family on Instagram that were seemingly taken at the hospital where she gave birth, writing, “Jacob Bryan Fisher entered the world in the wee hours of the morning on Monday … 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 couple already has a 3-year-old son named Isaiah. Underwood has been candid about her struggles to become pregnant for a second time. The 35-year-old singer revealed that she suffered three miscarriages between 2017 and 2018 before successfully getting pregnant again.
Fisher hinted at these troubles in his Instagram post announcing the birth of Jacob, writing: “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. #grateful #miraclebaby”
Underwood revealed the gender of her second child back in November when she hosted the CMA Awards alongside co-host Brad Paisley.
“Seriously, Carrie, give me a little baby hint,” Paisley said. “Johnny or June? Keith or Nicole? Garth or Trisha? Tim or Faith? George or Tammy? Waylon or Willie?”
“Oh, my gosh … Willie. It’s a Willie, OK?” she replied, indicating that she was pregnant with a boy.
Paisley took to social media after hearing the news of the baby’s birth to congratulate the Underwood-Fishers, writing, “Like I said, it’s a Willie! Er … a Jacob!”
Congrats to the happy family!
