The songstress, 38, who’s set to kick off her Reflection residency in Sin City this December, “doesn’t want to be pregnant while she’s doing the show, given the problems she had in the past,” shares the insider.
Underwood revealed she’d suffered multiple miscarriages after giving birth to son Isaiah, 6, before she and husband, Mike Fisher, 41, were blessed with their second child, Jacob, 2.
“This is her first-ever residency, so it’s really important to Carrie,” explains the insider.
Due to demand, Underwood's already doubled the number of Vegas shows she’ll be performing, adding dates in March and April 2022.
“But it’s presented a dilemma because Mike had been excited about expanding their family ASAP,” adds the source.
Fortunately, the couple — who have spoken candidly about the ups and downs of their 11-year marriage — “are in a good place right now,” the insider says. “Carrie told Mike that she wants to be in the right frame of mind when they start trying again. She’s just asking him to wait a little longer!”
Like most couples, Underwood and Fisher have had their fair share of challenges. OK! previously reported that the two, despite some low lows, have "managed to work out their issues and put the spark back into their relationship." In fact, post lockdown, Underwood and Fisher are thriving.
"They put their relationship on reset and started dividing up household tasks, cooking together, having movie nights with the boys — and setting time aside for sunset walks and other romantic things," an insider previously dished. "After a lot of hard work and patience, Carrie and Mike are better than ever."
The couple recently celebrated 11 years of wedding bliss on July 10. "Happy anniversary @carrieunderwood hard to believe this was 11 years ago today," Fisher recently wrote on Instagram. "Here's to many more with the best partner I could imagine!! #happyanniversary."
For her part, Underwood posted, "Happy anniversary, babe! 11 years sure have flown by...here's to many, many more. Love you!"
