Yahoo — Carrie Underwood will soon have a little one at home to sing to. The country singer announced on Monday that she’s expecting her first child with her husband, Mike Fisher.
The 31-year-old shared her happy news on Labor Day, of course, posting a photo of herself with her two dogs, Ace and Penny, who had on “big brother” and “big sister” shirts.
“In honor of “Labor” Day… Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement,” wrote the “Mama’s Song” crooner. “Their parents couldn’t be happier!”
Fisher retweeted Underwood’s announcement, then followed with another post about baby names, writing, “We haven’t picked names yet but it’s looking like Fly is gonna fly. #boyorgirl #flyfisher.”
The American Idol winner and her retired hockey star husband, 34, met at one of her concerts in 2008. They tied the knot at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Georgia, in July 2010.
The adorable couple recently did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge together, getting a big soaking from a bulldozer. The songstress didn’t let on in the video that three of them were getting dunked.
Underwood was in no rush to start a family. Just last year, she admitted she felt that she was “too young” to become a mom.
“It’s so funny, I still think of myself I guess being much younger than I actually am,” she said to Marie Claire in June 2013. “I’m like, I’m too young to have kids when I’m 29 years old, so I’m really not [ready]. I have only been married two years. I really want to enjoy that and really figure that out a little better before we start throwing so much responsibility into that.”
However, she did have a number in mind. She told Access Hollywood in 2012 that Mike wanted a big family, while she felt that two kids was the right number.
“I think I’ll win that battle,” she said with a wink, though admitted she would also be open to adopting later on.
Well, she’s on her way to her first — and that in itself is wonderful news.
People — There’s no seven-year itch between Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – the duo are back to host the 48th annual CMA Awards, for their seventh time.
In preparation for their return to the Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 5, Underwood, 31, and Paisley, 41, tried their hands at a game of country music trivia courtesy of the show’s reigning group of the year, Little Big Town. The prize? A collectors’ edition set of Brad and Carrie bobblehead dolls!
Since 2008, the Nashville regulars have danced, sung and joked their way through the annual event honoring country music’s biggest stars. (Remember when Paisley kissed Miss Piggy?)
And if the video above is any indication of what’s ahead for November, the CMA Awards countdown officially – and happily – starts now.

Country Weekly — The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry has married her fiancé, Texas Rangers catcher J.P. Arencibia, the group’s rep confirmed to Country Weekly.
The couple reportedly held their nuptials at a church in Greeneville, Tenn., where the Perry family lives, and the reception took place at the family home. Among those in attendance were Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher.
The couple originally met in 2012 at a Florida music festival, then got engaged in 2013 when J.P. proposed to Kimberly at the family property in Greeneville.
“I went to a show of hers because I wanted to meet her,” J.P. told ESPN in February. “I got to meet her and we talked and eventually got back connected. That was spring training of 2012 and we started talking little by little and June that year we were dating.”
