Carrie Underwood is the face of Sunday Night Football after taking the helm from country star Faith Hill. Recently, Underwood filmed the new promo for the NFL and sat down with Access Hollywood for a chat afterward. The new mom talked about filming with some of the greatest athletes in the game, and cut to the chase pretty quick.
“I’d say hockey guys have more facial hair. That’s one physical difference, but they’re all hot,” Carrie said, laughing. And many female football fans (yeah, and some male Tom Brady fans) would absolutely agree!
Carrie Underwood talked about more than just football, however. The Smoke Break singer opened up about life as a mom, and just how surreal the past few months have been. Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, welcomed their first child together back in February. Isaiah Michael Fisher was born five months after his mama made the big announcement. Carrie says that having a baby still hasn’t sunk in yet.
“I feel like I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that we have a baby. Sometimes I’ve even asked my husband, ‘Do you feel like we actually have a kid?’ It completely changes your life, and all of your routines that you once had are out the window,” Carrie said. “It’s been a whole, amazing, sweet little monkey wrench into my life,” she added.
Carrie Underwood chatted with E! News at New York Fashion Week, sharing even more details about becoming a mother. She mentioned some of those “awkward” mom moments that so many women can relate to.
“You learn that awkwardness is part of being a mom. I’ve literally turned my chair around into a corner over on like a side room [at a restaurant] and pumped there,” she revealed. I pumped at a concert once, I was attending somebody else’s concert. Awkwardness is a part of being a mom,” she added.
Carrie also talked about how she got her body back. Her current favorite exercise? Running.
“I feel good. I work out if and when I can. I’ve tried to focus more on my eating and stuff like that, fueling up right. I don’t get to work out as much as I used to, but that’s OK. And I feel good and I feel healthy and I feel strong. I like to run. I found myself running more this summer than I ever have… it just seems to have worked better in my schedule,” she shared.
You’ll see Carrie Underwood singing her version of Sunday Night Football tomorrow, before the Giants take on the Cowboys at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
