Carrie Underwood thinking about baby number two

Country star Carrie Underwood is getting serious about expanding her family, revealing she and husband Mike Fisher are thinking about having another kid.
The Jesus Take the Wheel singer and the ice hockey star became parents last year (15), when little Isaiah Michael was born, and now it seems there could be a baby brother or sister on the way once Carrie wraps up her end-of-year tour commitments, which include a run of shows Down Under with Keith Urban.
“If my husband were at the beginning of his career, I’m not sure we could handle it,” she tells Redbook magazine, “(but) since he’s kind of nearing the end and won’t be travelling so much, we’re like, ‘We can figure it out for not that long’. You make it work.
“When I was pregnant, I thought, ‘How am I going to go on the road? How am I going to keep doing my job?’ I had to just give it to God and stop worrying about it. Sure enough, we figured it out.”
And there were added challenges for independent Carrie when little Isaiah was born: “Accepting help is hard for me, but I’m learning.
“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.”
