Carrie Underwood is pregnant!

Carrie Underwood has been married to husband Mike Fisher for a few years now, and she was starting to get asked a question Jennifer Aniston is rather tired of: When are you having babies? Well, the answer to that is NOW, because Carrie and Mike are expecting their first child together. She announced the news on Instagram on Monday with the above photo and the following caption:

In honor of “Labor” Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier…

Aw, isn’t that cute? I don’t know much about Carrie and don’t really follow her, but she’s always seemed really sweet (albeit a little misguided) and is obviously pleased with her pregnancy, so good for them. Hopefully it’s a healthy and happy one!

Carrie Underwood Thinks You Need Jesus

Carrie Underwood thinks you need Jesus — that is, if you’re “mean”. She tweeted the night after her Sound of Music live NBC special aired (to mostly dismal reviews),

Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight… 1 Peter 2:1-25

Was she possibly responding to Kym Karath who played Gretl Von Trapp in the original film? Ms. Karath live-tweeted the show. Some highlights (lowlights?):

Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer.

Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch .

Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong.

Ms. Karath was later overwhelmed by the attention her tweets got. The tweets even landed her an interview on CNN. She tweeted the day after the remake aired,

To be clear I love Carrie Underwood. Just not as Maria. She was brave to take it on.And this doesn’t lessen my respect for her talent.

It’s more likely Carrie Underwood was tweeting at “haters” than Gretl herself. But who knows? Maybe she doesn’t handle any kind of criticism very well, though you’d think she’d have learned after dealing with Simon Cowell while she was on American Idol.

I love that there’s Sound of Music drama. What year is it? Also, who watched this and what did you think?

Carrie Underwood’s Fame Gave Her Anxiety Attacks

carrie underwood

I really like Carrie Underwood. There’s no real rhyme or reason to that, but I do. A couple of her songs are damn good (‘Blown Away’ is my shit!) but I’ve never listened to a full album and I haven’t exactly kept up on her career, I just think she seems nice. I dunno, don’t ask me. Anyway, turns out her massive success following her American Idol win hasn’t all been positive – in fact, it caused major anxiety attacks for her for a very long time.

From Marie Claire (via US Weekly):

“At the beginning of my career, I used to have panic attacks. People were touching me, screaming ­– it made me really nervous. In public, I just get nervous. It’s a physical reaction, feeling like the walls are closing in,” she explains.

“The fans are great. It’s not their fault. I don’t ever want to come across as ungrateful. But on my end, it is hard for me to process. Because I am still just me.”

I get anxiety when a stranger emails me, so I kind of can’t imagine having millions of people in my face 24/7. It would not be a good thing, that’s for sure. It seems like she’s got things a  bit more under control now, which is good… though she does have a bit of an interpersonal problem.

“I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings, but they are quite a bit older than me. I was the accident, so I have the only-child syndrome going on,” Underwood admits. “I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean, I’m not a sociopath.”

Well, that’s a relief.
