Carrie Underwood is proving that she’s looking just as stunning as ever a mere three months after giving birth to her second child with husband Mike Fisher. The country superstar returned to where it all began for her as she performed on the big American Idol Season 17 finale on May 19 while sporting a body-hugging dress/jumpsuit combo that featured not just one but two thigh-high slits.
Performing her fun new single “Southbound” on the ABC reincarnation of the singing show – where she also got in a little interaction with judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry (who got up and danced with her) – Underwood proved that she’s been putting a whole lot of hard work into her post-baby body as she proudly flaunted her long and seriously toned legs.
Carrie’s glamorous blue and yellow sparkly sequin dress turned jumpsuit split all the way up both of her legs to show off her world-famous stems as she belted out the upbeat party song, which The Inquisitr previously reported she admitted she wasn’t quite sure she could get away with while writing it with her fellow songwriters.
As fans will remember, the stunning mom of two got her big break on the singing competition 14 years ago back in 2005, when she won Season 4.
But viewers were clearly just a little more focused on how happy and healthy the star looked rather than getting too sentimental about her big return to the stage.
Fans flocked to social media to share their disbelief that Carrie – who’s also mom to 4-year-old Isaiah – only gave birth to her second child a mere three months ago on January 21.

But the “Before He Cheats” singer hasn’t been shy about the fact that she’s been hitting the gym hard after welcoming baby No. 2 into the world at the start of the year.
As The Inquisitr reported earlier this month, Carrie shared her intense exercise routine with her fans, revealing that she likes to get a pretty full-on workout in with her trainer before hitting the stage as she’s currently heading across the U.S. on her “Cry Pretty Tour 360.”
The star previously told E! News that her workouts have actually been cut down since becoming a mom, but revealed that she always makes the most of it when she has time for a workout.
“I used to work out six days a week, but now that’s a little rare, sometimes it’s one or two times a week and that just kind of has to be okay,” Underwood admitted to the site. “And it is okay because whatever I’m doing that’s keeping me out of the gym is important.”
