Proof That Carrie Underwood Is Human

Six Ways She Is Just Like Everyone Else

There’s kind of this mystique about celebrities. Like they live this unreal life that mere mortals could never understand. But then, you read an article about Carrie Underwood from start to finish, and you realize she’s more real than you ever thought possible.

Underwood recently opened up to People about her personal life, and these are the six ways that I know she’s just like me.

On her idea of romance: She said she would rather have her husband Mike Fisher change the bathroom light bulb than bring her flowers.

On the way her C-section scar interferes with her tummy tattoo: “It’s not really a four-leaf clover anymore, it’s a multi-leaf. It doesn’t match up with the top!”

On former lovebirds Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert getting divorced: “It makes you want to take stock of your own marriage.”

On her recent trip to London, which was her first trip away from her baby Isaiah: “I’m probably going to sleep awesome. I may have more than a glass of wine. That might happen.”

On raising Isaiah to be lovingly open-minded: She wants him to always think, “You know what? God loves them, so it should be my job to do my best to love them as well.”

On the emotions of motherhood, and being not enough of this or too much of that: “Mom guilt is real!”

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
