Country music artist, Carrie Underwood sent a message to her fan club members about how 2018 may look different.
Back in November 2017, Underwood suffered a serious fall outside her home where she broke her wrist and required surgery In addition to the broken wrist, Underwood also received over 40 stitches to her face.
“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” she wrote in the message reported by People, “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”
People also reported Underwood said, “In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [Underwood’s husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”
It’s now been seven weeks since the accident and Underwood said she’s not looking quite the same.
Underwood did post this photo on her Instagram a few days ago while she and husband Mike Fisher were on a holiday vacation with the caption, “When in 5-degree weather, wrap your @caliabycarrie scarf around your neck and face…you keep warm AND look like an awesome winter snow ninja!”
The only thing visible in the photo is her eyes. Underwood did end her note to fans, “I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way,” she concluded. “And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”
Currently, Underwood has no performance dates on her schedule. Underwood did cancel her appearance at the Country Rising Event in November and her Opry appearance in December. Earlier in 2017 after closing out the Storyteller Tour, Underwood said she was ready for a break to focus on being a mom to son, Isaiah, with newly retired Predators husband, Mike Fisher. The Storyteller album released in 2015 which was the fifth studio album for the American Idol winner. While fans are have been sending well wishes on her social media platforms, others have been asking if Underwood is pregnant. We will be watching for more updates and maybe a baby announcement soon.
