Carrie Underwood, 31, announced on Instagram that she and her husband, Mike Fisher, 34, have welcomed their first child, a boy named Isaiah. I didn’t even remember she was pregnant because it seems like she’s laid low for the past few months. Isaiah was actually born last Friday, February 27. Carrie shared the above photo yesterday, which only showed little Isaiah’s hand. It would have been nice to have seen his face, but at least she told us the name. (*cough* Blake Lively *cough*)
Isaiah is a Biblical name, it’s also a book in the Old Testament. Carrie is an outspoken Christian who reads the bible. She also supports gay marriage, yay! So Carrie and Mike picked a very old school Biblical name. It’s better than Moses, probably because it’s one of the lesser-known Bible names.
Carrie and Mike have been married since July, 2010, and seem to have deliberately waited to have children. Carrie has said several times in the past that she wasn’t ready to have kids yet, and that she knew it would be a big responsibility. To me, that sounds like she waited, considered motherhood carefully and went into it with her husband with open eyes.
Congratulations to Carrie and Mike on their new arrival!
