The 31-year-old Grand Ole Opry inductee announced September 1 that she and husband Mike Fisher of the NHL’s Nashville Predators were expecting their first child.
“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement,” she shared in an Instagram snapshot with her two pups, dressed in “big brother” and “big sister” tees. “Their parents couldn’t be happier.”
The couple, who reside in Nashville, Temnessee, wed in July 2010 after two years of dating; and, if Underwood’s 2009 cover story with Self magazine comes full circle, this pregnancy is only the first.
“Someday I’d like a family – not a big one, but not a small one either,” she said in the feature. “Two kids is good; three is fine. Four? Somebody’s getting something done, because we ain’t having five!”
