Carrie Underwood fans have taken issue with a comment she made in Redbook magazine, a publication that seems pretty on-brand for Carrie Underwood fans. In the same Redbook interview where she revealed the shocking truth about her life-altering faceplant (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, wha?!), she also mentioned that, at 35, she’s worried the expiration date on her baby-making equipment is about to pass. For some reason, a number of commenters on Facebook, became incensed by this.
“I’m 35, so we may have missed our chance to have a big family. We always talk about adoption and about doing it when our child or children are a little older.”
Can you believe the nerve of this woman!? Doesn’t she know that she has fans out there who are still cooking miniature people inside their bodies well into their 40’s? How dare she.
The comments came rolling in on Facebook. “I’m 38 and just had a baby . . . she’s being ridiculous,” wrote one woman. Added another: “You do know that everyone’s body is different, right?”
A third fan revealed her 20-year-old sister is struggling to conceive, while her mother-in-law became pregnant at 41 with no difficulty.
Imagine being so interested in Carrie Underwears’ family planning that you’d actually catch feelings about it. And the thing is, she’s got a good point. If by “big family” she means like 5 or 6 kids, she is off to a late start. Carrie’s busy with her career right now; if she wants to birth an entire soccer team, she’s late as fuck. Having a whole passel of kids seems like the Country Strong kid of ideal. Having one kid is for city-slickers and liberal elites. Maybe that’s why she said anything about it in the first place. Is she trying to let us know that despite her practically childless ways, she’s still a true Country Cween? If so, Dolly Parton would like a word.
