Carrie Underwood’s face-altering accident was all over the news for a few months, but fortunately for Carrie – as well as her curious fans – surgery fixed everything. And while one would think a person’s concern in such a situation would be mostly related to their looks – or lack thereof – Carrie stated that she feared her son’s reaction.
Following a fall outside of her home that left her with the need for forty stitches, the 35-year-old told her fans in a blog post after the injury that she might look a “bit different.”
However, despite her claims that her face had changed, she rocked the ACM Awards this year and hardly anyone could tell. Some of the fans said she doesn’t even look altered.
Underwood, when talking about her three-year-old son, said she feared her little boy wouldn’t recognize her. She said, “but now, If I put makeup on, he’s like, ‘Mommy, your boo-boo’s all gone.”
Sources close to the country star explained to us, “Carrie was incredibly worried after she fell because it could’ve altered her career. In a business like this, looks, unfortunately, play a pretty big role.”
However, according to the award-winning singer, thus far, she’s been incredibly fortunate “in the healing process.” She had the holidays to heal after the fall, nobody had to see her face after the accident really, so she had time.
Additionally, Underwood had to get a plate in her wrist, which was awkward at first, but she’s gotten used to it. And to keep herself busy, Carrie worked on her latest record, Cry Pretty, which is slated for release in September of this year.
It looks like the reports of her horrifically damaged face were exaggerated after all. On the other hand, any publicity is good publicity, just in time for her new album too.
