This is another in a series of interviews about the contents of Carrie Underwood’s womb, since the nulliparous country singer is asked monthly when (rather than the less-aggressive “if”) she’s going to have children.
This is very indicative of the kinds of questions asked to Cameron Diaz, Zooey Deschanel, Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Westfeldt, Jennifer Aniston, and others who’re momentarily childless or childfree-by-choice. To which, from those women, the blithe response is “maybe I will, maybe I won’t, but the choice doesn’t define me.”
It’s a similar reply to the one Underwood gave during a 2010 interview with Robin Roberts, explaining Underwood was too busy to accommodate kids. It’s the same she’s said in two subsequent interviews. Although, it’s a few weeks later, and it seems as though she and hockey player husband Mike Fisher have since had some kind of conversation about kids because she’s changed her tune a little.
In a joint interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter, Underwood, 29, says that while Fisher, 31, grew up with “three siblings, I think two is a good number to have. We’ll see. We’ll cross that bridge. I don’t want too many.” Fisher says he’d be happy with “two or three” kids, but Underwood joked, “He’s like, ‘I want seven!’”
In the same interview, Underwood says she has no immediate plans to start a family, but Fisher ”is going to be the best dad ever, and that makes the whole parent situation seem much better.”
