Is it teething time for your little one?
Fall apart: Carrie Underwood gets real about suffering three miscarriages

Carrie Underwood has always been open about going through several miscarriages.

The 36-year-old is mum to two gorgeous sons - 4-year-old Isaiah Michael and 4-month-old Jacob with husband Mike Fisher.

She told the Guardian how it felt going through the pain of losing a baby three times.

She said, ''I was still trying to do my job and put on a smiley happy face and be Carrie Underwood. And then I’d go home and fall apart.''

She continued, ''It’s something that people don’t really talk about. Even people who are my friends and I know well after I talked about it were like, ‘My gosh, me too!’ And I feel like it’s something I should’ve known about them.''

She added, ''I still feel it, you know. I mean it took me a while to be able to sing certain songs and be able to get through them without really going there. It doesn’t go away. Ever.''

Her advice is time - waiting for the pain to ease.

She revealed, ''I guess you wait for things to stop hurting at some point. But letting yourself go there, other people that are going through the same thing, it kind of connects you to them.''

She continued, ''I will always mourn those children, those lives that were a shooting star, a breath of smoke, but I have Jacob, and he is incredible, he is the sweetest little baby. At the time it was awful, and it still hurts, but it’s kind of like, OK, I have this.”

We love this way of thinking - and we applaud Carrie and her strength for speaking about such a sensitive subject.
