Carrie Underwood is now confident enough to show her face fully after her scary fall last year. As you remember, she needed between 40 and 50 stitches which left behind a scar she has been hiding for months.
In addition to revealing her healing face, Carrie is also ready to talk about the accident that got her to stay away from the spotlight.
Back in November of 2017, the star, unfortunately, fell on her property and broke her wrist and injured her face to the point that she felt like warning the fans she might look different when returning to her public life.
Although the scar under her nose and going into her upper lip is definitely visible, it is obvious it has faded a lot.
While on the Bobby Bones podcast, the country singer explained what happened exactly: ‘I was taking the dogs out and I just, I tripped. There was one step and I did not let go of the leashes. Priorities! — So, that is why my left hand is fine. But, I went to catch myself, and I just missed a step. If I had fallen anywhere else, I would have been totally fine. But, there was a step that messed everything up.’
Carrie went on to admit that ‘It set me back. The most frustrating part was attempting to work out with a broken wrist and how much it can throw off your whole world – having an appendage that is there, but you just cannot use.’
As for the healing process, she explained that she was really ‘fortunate.’
‘I was lucky that when it happened, everything was shutting down in the music world as we had the holidays and things like that.’
Later on during the interview, Carrie went ahead to also address her post in which she said: ‘When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.’
According to the star, after the accident, she ‘was at a point where [she] didn’t know how things were going to end up.’
‘I did not know what was going to go on. I did not know what it was going to heal like. I felt like it was important to me, as I started resuming my life once again, and going to the grocery store and taking my child to school and stuff like that I was like, ‘Ok, someone is going to creep on me at the grocery store and people are going to be like, what happened and post it on Instagram.’
