Carrie Underwood's not just a cool mom, she's a regular mom. Or so she proclaimed as she walked the red carpet for the 2018 CMT Artists of the Year Awards last October, her six month-pregnant bump swathed in sequined Tadashi Shoji.
"I feel like I'm a working mom, pregnant, I got my stuff to do, you know," she explained to E! News at the Nashville event, "it's just an interesting job I have, but I'm just like every other pregnant lady trying to go to work."
Which is true if you ignore the fact that her nine-to-five requires designer mini dresses, four-and-a-half-inch stiletto sandals and posing in front of an onslaught of cameras and endless rows of screaming fans. Or that her return from maternity leave involves a month of rehearsals for her Cry Pretty Tour 360, kicking off in North Carolina today. (Not to mention that time she performed twice at April's ACM Awards in Las Vegas 11 weeks postpartum, squeezing in a moment to pump before she hit the stage.)
