Carrie Underwood likes to use her Instagram account to make big family announcements, and I am totally here for it! I love following the upbeat star and her family and career moves. She took to Insta last August to announce that she was expecting her second child, a rainbow baby, with her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher. She was all smiles in the announcement, but admitted in a later tearful CBS News interview that she had suffered three miscarriages in 2017-2018. In light of that, the news I saw just minutes ago on her Instagram is especially sweet: her new baby boy was born this past Monday!

The country superstar shared three photos of her new son: one with Daddy Mike Fisher, one with Underwood, and one with their 3-year-old son Isaiah, relishing his role as big brother! She captioned the photos:

“Jacob Bryan Fisher entered the world in the wee hours of the morning on Monday…his mom, dad and big brother couldn’t be happier for God to trust them with taking care of this little miracle! Our hearts are full, our eyes are tired and our lives are forever changed. Life is good…”

Umm, could that photo be any more precious? A rainbow baby after three losses . . . I can’t imagine the joy and relief she feels holding little Jacob in her arms!

Underwood also told CBS News that she struggled with anger at God after her past miscarriages, but that she took her past pain and put it into her music, resulting in her album, Cry Pretty.

Let’s hope she can funnel this newborn joy into an album, too . . . I think a tune about rainbows after the storm would be oh so appropriate!

Congratulations to the Underwood-Fisher family!
