Country star Carrie Underwood announces first child
Country superstar Carrie Underwood on Tuesday announced the birth of her first child with her husband, the hockey player Mike Fisher.
Underwood released on Twitter a photograph of the hand of their son -- Isaiah Michael Fisher -- and said he was born on Friday.
"God has blessed us with an amazing gift!" Underwood wrote.
Underwood in 2010 married Fisher, a Canadian hockey player now with the Nashville Predators.
Last month, a heavily pregnant Underwood was unable to travel to Los Angeles to accept the Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance for her gospel-tinged "Something in the Water."
Underwood, 31, is known for her healthy lifestyle and is a longtime vegetarian.
She became a vegan a couple of years ago but said that she reverted a bit during her pregnancy.
"Now I'm pregnant, it's like, I can't just order steamed broccoli. That's not going to cut it," she told CBS television's Entertainment Tonight in December.
