Carrie Underwood handed her fans a double bundle of exciting news today. While unveiling plans for her 2019 Cry Pretty Tour 360, the singer also revealed that she is expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher.
Underwood made the announcement in a video posted to her social media accounts, sharing that the 55-date tour will launch in May of 2019 before the camera pans out to reveal balloons spelling out “baby.” Already mom to three-year-old son Isaiah, Underwood appeared to hint that she’d be expecting a little girl this time around, as she sat in front of an pink curtain donning a jacket of the same hue.
“Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond,” she said. “This has just been a dream come true with album and baby news. We’re just so excited.”

As for the tour, the massive trek will keep the soon-to-be mother of two on the road throughout May and June. It will resume in September and conclude on Halloween. Over 50 North American cities are on the itinerary, including Chicago, Tulsa, Boston, Houston and Los Angeles, as well as Canadian markets like Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Edmonton. Rising stars Runaway June and Maddie & Tae are joining Underwood on the road in support.
The Cry Pretty Tour comes in support of Underwood’s forthcoming album of the same name, due out September 14. Underwood will employ the same staging used in her previous Storyteller Tour, which allowed 360° views of the stage for all concert-goers.
It’s been a year of ups and downs for the Grammy winner. A scary fall last November outside her Nashville home left the singer with a broken wrist and facial lacerations that required over 40 stitches. She spent months out of the spotlight and told fans that the incident may have left her looking different than before.
After several teasers, she triumphantly returned to music with lead single “Cry Pretty,” a power ballad that shows off a more vulnerable side to Underwood. Following the song’s release, the singer made notable appearances at the ACM Awards, CMA Fest, and the show which launched her head-first into stardom, American Idol, all of which played crucial roles in boosting her confidence again after her accident.
Her exciting double dose of news today follows the announcement that she will return to co-host this year’s CMA Awards in November alongside Brad Paisley for the 11th consecutive year.
