There’s just something about a mom’s lullabies, whether or not she can carry a tune. But imagine your mom is the incredible country singer, Carrie Underwood. The singer’s youngest son may only be 5 months old, but he’s already got an impeccable ear for music, and the latest adorable video from Underwood proves it.
While she and her husband, Mike Fisher, were trying to soothe their son Jacob, they each tried their hand at singing a verse from Vince Gill’s “I Still Believe In You.” Fisher’s efforts seemed to do no good as the baby just kept crying every time Fisher opened his mouth to belt out another line. Once Underwood’s vocals entered the duet, however, the baby was instantly quiet and calm. When it was his father’s turn again — sobs.
Underwood posted a clip of the hilarious and relatable moment to her Instagram with the caption, “Everyone’s a critic.”
We have a feeling other parents out there definitely feel for Fisher and his failed attempts at soothing his son. Because really — anyone with a child has had moments like this.
In fact, fellow musician and father Justin Timberlake posted a comment on the video, writing, “This is the greatest thing I’ve seen all year.” We assume he understands this dad’s struggles to calm his baby boy, although we doubt his problems lie in the music category (sorry, Fisher!).
Fisher was quick to comment on the video to point out that the baby was probably just hungry, writing to his wife, “The real reason is he was hungry and wanted your food. #notmysinging.”
Whatever the case, the moment was absolutely hilarious and all too adorable!
While Underwood is known to have powerhouse vocals whether on-stage or in the studio, she’s also known to be a little silly when singing to her kids. On her oldest son Isaiah’s birthday, she sang him a birthday song after taking a few gulps of a helium balloon. As you can hear in the video that Fisher posted to Instagram, she still sounded pretty good, all things considered:
It wouldn’t surprise us if Fisher left the singing to his wife from now on. But Underwood is quick to point out that Fisher is no slouch when it comes to parenthood. She posted a special Father’s Day tribute to Fisher on Instagram, pointing out that he’s an incredible father to their two sons, even if his singing doesn’t quite compare to mommy’s.
An adorable image of Fisher with little Isaiah and Jacob was accompanied by the following sweet caption:
“I feel like this picture pretty much sums up fatherhood,” she wrote. “To all the frog catching, bedtime story reading, wrestling, diaper changing, outside playing, adventure seeking, tickling, cuddling, loving dads out there, Happy Father’s Day! @mfisher1212 your boys sure do love you and are are so lucky to have you!”
Clearly, these parents know their roles and carry them out well! Of course, this only means plenty of cute content for their fans. These two can keep the posts coming, as far as we’re concerned!
