It looks like Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, will be spending more time together this year than planned. Mike Fisher is out of the game when it comes to playing hockey for the Nashville Predators. The 34 year old center just underwent surgery for a ruptured Achilles tendon and will be laid up for 4 to 6 months.
Does this mean Carrie Underwood could be having a baby? Though the country singer has not announced her pregnancy yet, the rumors certainly start to fly the minute there are any disruptions in the normal schedule. Since Carrie Underwood is usually in attendance at the many country music events throughout the year, as well as charity events, her schedule is usually quite full. Add to that Mike Fisher traveling with his NHL team, and well, it’s not a lifestyle conducive to starting a family.
And Carrie Underwood has kept mum on the subject for the most part. In June, she told Access Hollywood that she “didn’t know” if she’d be having a baby anytime soon. While it’s not unusual for stars to want to keep their baby news to themselves for a while, it’s also possible that the right time they’d been waiting for could now be upon them.
Carrie Underwood is in the writing stages of her next album, which still leaves recording time and promotion time before she’d begin touring again. With Mike Fisher off the ice for a while, it could be a good time for those family conversations to happen, but baby-smitten fans shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet. Even though Carrie Underwood’s future baby is sure to be adorable, she and Mike Fisher are still young, in the under 35 crowd. It’s quite possible that waiting until Mike Fisher is off the ice permanently would work out better than Carrie Underwood trying to tour and care for a baby alone.
In any case, the couple, who has been married for four years, will get some unplanned time together. Though it’s never pleasant to be injured, the down time could give the couple somewhat of a second honeymoon while they enjoy each other’s company throughout the summer and fall months. Furthermore, if Mike Fisher’s injury ends up requiring the full six months, it’s probable that we’ll see the cute lovebirds together if Carrie Underwood co-hosts the CMA Awards again in November.
Will there be Carrie Underwood baby news by then? Only time will tell, but there are sure to be rumors flying the rest of the year.
