Carrie Underwood catches heat for comment about fertility


Carrie Underwood isn’t known for being controversial. But the country singer angered some parents when she said that at age 35, she and husband Mike Fisher won’t be able to give their son, Isaiah, 3, many biological siblings.

“I’m 35, so we may have missed our chance to have a big family,” the American Idol alum told Redbook’sSeptember issue. “We always talk about adoption and about doing it when our child or children are a little older.”

The comments came rolling in on Facebook. “I’m 38 and just had a baby . . . she’s being ridiculous,” wrote one woman. Added another: “You do know that everyone’s body is different, right?”

A third fan revealed her 20-year-old sister is struggling to conceive, while her mother-in-law became pregnant at 41 with no difficulty.

Meanwhile, back in April 2017, Underwood joked that Isaiah enjoys having his parents all to himself. “If a dog climbs up on my lap, I feel like he gets a little jealous!” she quipped to Entertainment Tonight at the time.

Underwood and Fisher, 38, were introduced by her bass player Mark Childers at one of her concerts in 2008. During a Behind the Music special in 2012, the former ice hockey player gushed of meeting his future wife, “First time I saw her, she was more beautiful person than on TV.” A smitten Underwood texted Childers: “Hot, hot, hot.” The couple became engaged in 2009 and tied the knot in Greensboro, Georgia, in July 2010.
