Carrie Underwood is loving her life as a mom in Nashville. She recently shared a series of videos and photos on Instagram as her youngest son, Jacob, celebrated his fifth birthday playing hockey on a frozen pond near the family’s house. She wrote in the caption, “A special birthday for a special 5-year-old!!! Our pond was frozen over in perfect condition for a night skate! What a treat!!! Happy birthday, Jake! I know you wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!”

Underwood is also mom to son Isaiah, who will turn 9 next month, with husband Mike Fisher. The family embraced the snowy weather ahead of her return to Las Vegas for her residency at the Resorts World Theater in March. They purchased the Tennessee property in 2011 and have been living there since 2018 when work on the home was completed. The property is affectionately referred to as EH-OK Farm by the family and features a barn where they house cattle and horses.

In 2016, Underwood told Country Living that she and Fisher were building their “forever home,” but she tends to keep her home life private. The same year, she explained to Redbook that her onstage persona is different than the “real” Carrie Underwood. She said, “I love being onstage, but that’s different. That’s not Carrie. That’s Carrie Underwood. The rest of my life, I feel like I’m incredibly disappointing to people. Like, if I run into someone at the grocery store, I really don’t know what to say because I don’t have a microphone in my hand or bling on. They expect me to be ‘Carrie Underwood,’ but I’m just Carrie. I’m sorry!”

But when she does share glimpses of the at-home Carrie, it’s clear she’s a proud mama. When Isaiah was almost 2 years old in 2016, she spoke with Redbook about being a first-time mom and working on the road. She said, “I definitely feel like it’s changed me as a person. I’m happier. I’m in a better mood a lot of the time. He’ll be watching cartoons, and I’ll be watching him. I’m completely in love. I love it when he’s sleepy, and I get to hold him and smell him. He doesn’t know I’m staring at him and being all googly-eyed!”

As for life as a musician on tour, Underwood said, “Sometimes I feel guilty that this is my son’s life. We live on a bus, and we’re in a hotel room. And sometimes we’re in the middle of nowhere, and it’s not so great. It’s not all glamorous. We have a nanny who helps out, especially when we’re on the road. But I’d feel guilty asking someone to watch him at home while I run to the grocery store.” Underwood takes her family on tour when she can, and though she’s won multiple Grammys, it’s her boys she hopes to impress the most.

In a 2019 post to Instagram, she shared a photo of one of her sons watching her on stage, writing in the caption, “One of my favorite things about the #CryPrettyTour360 is having my family out on the road with me. I just hope I’m making my boys proud of their mama.” The Oklahoma native more recently shared a video during her 2022 tour of her boys watching the show, noting, “One was blowing me kisses … one was sleeping soundly.”
