Carrie Underwood will be celebrating her 33rd birthday on tour this year—and it will be a birthday like no other.
The country singer is no longer just one of the most successful artists in the business, an American Idol alumna, a seven-time Grammy winner, an Almay brand ambassador and the wife of NHL player Mike Fisher. She's also mom to 1-year-old Isaiah Michael Fisher—and that's a full-time job all on its own.
Underwood announced in October that she was taking Isaiah on her Storyteller Tour with her, so she's got her work cut out for her. But she's obviously doing a great job on the road, balancing work with mommyhood.
So how has road life changed for Carrie since becoming a mom just days before her 32nd birthday?
Well, priority number one: baby-proof the tour bus.
Underwood revealed to Taste of Country Nights that the same person who designed baby Isaiah's nursery also designed his space on the bus, and made special accommodations for the toddler to feel comfortable and safe while hanging out on tour with Mom.

Priority two: Keep the romance alive.
Underwood's hubby of over five years marked his own milestone last week, playing in the 1,000th game of his pro hockey career last Thursday, and Carrie made sure to send her love from afar.
"That's my man!" she gushed in the caption of a pic of Fisher on Instagram. "The first time I met him, I sent a text to @bassmmmbass (who set us up) saying 'Hot, hot, hot!!!' I was right then, and I'm right now when I say that he's hotter now than he's ever been! What an amazing husband, father, friend and hockey dude!!! I am one lucky lady!"
Priority three: Keep Isaiah's life as normal as possible.
This task may be a tall order for a celebrity mom in the long run; however, Underwood's son is only 1, so now all is normal! Underwood made sure her son had a proper birthday party on the road, with a cheery under-the sea-themed cake.
Priority four: Eat well and exercise to stay in tip-top shape.
Carrie shared the photo above on Instagram to her 3.4 million followers, showing that she actually had a mobile gym created for her so that she could stick to her workout regimen while on tour. That's dedication.
She also let her fans in on how she keeps her energy up before show time, captioning this photo of her dinner: "Pre-show dinner. Tofurkey Thai basil chick'n and veggies. I try to stick to protein and veggies for dinner, especially on show days so I don't feel stuffed or bloated on stage."
You can't be a super mom and a super star without your proteins and vegetables!
When Underwood isn't performing, rehearsing or cuddling Isaiah, she's got her rescue pup, Penny Jean, to cozy up to—because there's always time for showing your fur baby some love!
And if there's ever any spare time after that, Underwood's likes to hang out with her band and watch The Walking Dead, one of her favorite shows.
The country star is currently on the European leg of her tour and will be back in the U.S. later this month. With so much to celebrate, we're figuring this will be one heck of a special day. Happy birthday, Carrie!
