Carrie Underwood is straight-up melting Instagram's heart. The "Cry Pretty" singer has joined the slew of celebs sharing their best moments from 2019, and it looks like Carrie's ones were all about her family.
The "American Idol" winner took to Instagram on New Year's Eve with two photos. One showed the famous blonde cuddling up to her January-born son Jacob (back when he was teeny tiny), with another photo showing husband Mike Fisher playing with both of the couple's children. Jacob joined older brother Isaiah when Carrie gave birth at the beginning of 2019.
Money Never Mattered To This Girl, Family Does
A caption from Carrie summed it up.
"And the most memorable moment of all in 2019…becoming a family of four was the best way to start off the new year as we welcomed our precious Jacob! 💙 #MemorableMoments," she wrote.
With a net worth of $85 million and tour revenue of $50 million from "Cry Pretty 360," you might be forgiven for Carrie ranking money above anything else. Not the case. Carrie has mentioned that fancy massages and door-delivered luxuries aren't her jam.
"I don't need massages, I don't need fancy getaway holidays . . . if you can give me an hour in the morning, that's all I need in life," she said earlier this year.
Fans loved today's update, with one calling it "so very precious" and another calling it "the sweetest."
Three Miscarriages In Two Years: 'I Will Always Mourn Those Children'
Prior to welcoming Jacob this year, Carrie suffered three miscarriages. 2019 saw her speak out.
"But letting yourself go there ... other people that are going through the same thing. It kind of connects you to them. I will always mourn those children, those lives that were a shooting star, a breath of smoke, but I have Jacob, and he is incredible. He is the sweetest little baby. At the time it was awful, and it still hurts, but it’s kind of like 'OK, I have this,'" she said.
Isaiah Sounds Like The Ideal Kid
Carrie further revealed how well things are going between her eldest son Isaiah and his baby brother.
"Being almost 5 years old, he’s just so helpful, and he looks out for his little brother. And he's good at [helping] when you ask him to do something; he’s a very task-oriented child. So if you ask him to do something, he wants to feel helpful and he wants to do it and be a part of things," she said.
The kids and their dad joined Carrie for parts of her "Cry Pretty 360" tour this year.
But Yesterday Brought Heartache: Carrie Hangs Up Her CMA-Hosting Hat
Carrie may be a sensation, followed by millions, and adored by most of America, but she did manage to break a few hearts yesterday: Carrie took to Instagram to announce that she's retiring from hosting the CMA Awards after 12 years.
"I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone involved with the CMA Awards all these years. It’s hard to imagine topping what we have accomplished together, so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) to others that will cherish it and honor it as much as I do," Carrie wrote.
Alongside her family, tour, and awards this year, Carrie is also running her Calia by Carrie athleisurewear line.
Still, that total squish of a baby, right?
