Country superstar Carrie Underwood sent her Instagram followers into a frenzy Tuesday morning with the first published photo of her newborn baby boy. She also revealed the name of the child, who is the first for the singer and her husband, professional hockey player Mike Fisher.
A close-up image of the baby’s fingers was accompanied on the social media posting by the caption that revealed the news of the birth: “Tiny hands and tiny feet…God has blessed us with an amazing gift!” Underwood writes. “Isaiah Michael Fisher — born on February 27. Welcome to the world, sweet angel!”
Although the name was kept under wraps until the Instagram post, Underwood had already revealed the baby’s gender on live TV, during the 2014 CMA Awards in November. Well, actually, her co-host Brad Paisley is the one who spilled the baby beans, in a comical moment that proved to be one of the highlights of the show.
The actual reveal for the happy couple took place, however, at a private dinner. “Just the two of us in a nicer setting, but we both knew,” Underwood explained to ABC in January. “So, that was just confirming our suspicions. We didn’t really speak of it before, because we were both just like, ‘Whatever. It’s all good.’ But we knew it was a boy.”
There’s no word yet on whether Isaiah is a family name, a biblical reference (Underwood and Fisher are devout Christians) or just a name the couple liked. But it’s probably safe to say that the singer got her way over the Nashville Predator when it came to naming their son. Fisher joked with his own social media followers that he was rooting for “Fly.”
