Carrie Underwood took to Instagram to post a photo of herself and her husband, Mike Fisher, on Friday, February 23. This is the first selfie that Underwood has posted in two months.
“The Champion” singer has been very cautious about posting pictures of herself after she fell on the front stairs of her home back in November. In that fall, Underwood suffered a broken wrist and also a large gash on her face that required some 50+ stitches.
A couple of months ago, Underwood wrote a blog to her fans, letting them know that she might look a bit “different” after the fall.
“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [Underwood’s husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in,” Underwood wrote.
“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful,” she adds. “I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way. I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way. And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” she added.
Underwood hasn’t said what exactly looks different, nor has she been seen in public since writing that post. In January, Below Deck star Adrienne Gang shared a photo of herself with Underwood after a pilates class. In the picture, which was taken after Underwood’s accident, Carrie doesn’t look any “different.” She doesn’t have a laceration, scar, or anything else on her face.
And while fans may have been expecting to see some kind of scar on Underwood’s face in her latest selfie, the country star strategically covered the lower portion of her face with a red “x.” Fisher also sported a red “x,” but his was on the back of his hand.
Underwood and Fisher posed for a picture to raise awareness for the End It Movement. The organization works to raise awareness and money in a fight to end human trafficking.
