Yes, queen! Carrie Underwood took the stage during the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards and absolutely rocked it just two months after giving birth to her second child. The blonde beauty blew fans away and obviously hasn’t missed a beat (pun intended) since welcoming her son in January.
She started her sassy performance of “Southbound” while hanging at a pool party. The artist wore a sparkly rainbow top by AMEN and looked as great as she sounded. She brought the bright number inside and sang as she walked through the crowd. She even snagged a quick kiss from her husband, Mike Fisher, before heading to the stage.
Fans were here for the performance. “Looking at Carrie Underwood’s legs really makes me want to go to the gym,” one person wrote on Twitter. Someone else added, “Carrie Underwood is a goddess.”
The 36-year-old has been very honest with fans about her postpartum experience. She shares two sons with her hockey player hubby — Isaiah, 4, and Jacob, 2 months. “I’m going to be honest, ‘bouncing back’ after having Jacob has been much more difficult than after I had Isaiah, and I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately,” she captioned a photo of herself at the gym on Instagram on March 19. “I go into the gym and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again … for my body to feel the way that I know it can.”
She continued by explaining that she’s come to accept her new normal. “As I was working out today, I realized that for the past 11(ish) months, my body has not belonged to me. It was a perfect home for Jacob. And even now it belongs to him every time he drinks his milk.” She added that she’s actively working on being kinder to herself. “As I prepare for red carpets and for life on tour, right now I make a promise to myself to start appreciating what my body CAN do and stop focusing on what it can’t.”
Keep slaying, Carrie!
