Carrie Underwood is looking flawless in new video showing close-ups of her face
Being involved in a freak accident is bad enough, but do you know what's even worse? Being scrutinised by the press, and all of your fans after said casualty. Yes, this is exactly the predicament that Carrie Underwood found herself in after she took a dramatic tumble on the steps outside of her home back in November.
While this may not sound like the most noteworthy of falls, it resulted in a broken wrist, which required surgery to insert a metal plate and screws, and the Grammy award-winning singer also received 40-50 stitches to her face. Carrie took to Twitter to jest that she would "be setting off airport metal detectors from now on", and warned her fans that she's "not quite looking the same". "I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way," she later stated. "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."
But five months later, it's evident that Carrie is back in action. In her first public appearance since 2017's Country Music Awards, she performed her new single, Cry Pretty, two weeks ago at this year's awards ceremony. And now, she has shared a close-up of her face in an Instagram story, and she looks absolutely amazing.
Carrie Underwood is back to sharing photos and videos on Instagram, and PRAISE BE because her Instagram stories are golden. She recently took to the platform to post a story wherein her husband, Mike Fisher, makes some very annoying noises to entertain their three-year-old son, Isaiah, and she reacts to said sounds.
In the stills you can see Carrie reacting to her husband, and her face all close-up and personal.
Doesn't she look flawless?
Speaking on iHeartRadio's The Bobby Bones Show last Thursday, Carrie explained how the accident went down. "I was taking the dogs out to go pee one last time, and I just—I tripped," she said. "There was one step, and I didn’t let go of the leashes! Priorities! So that’s why my left hand’s fine. But I went to catch myself and I just missed a step."
If I had fallen anywhere else, I would have been perfectly fine," she continued. "But it was one step that messed everything up."
Carrie has repeatedly expressed gratitude that her fall wasn't more serious. In an interview with People, she asserted "I honestly don't know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful." The country singer and songwriter added, "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."
Well, there you have it. While Carrie's recovery may have been long and arduous, it's evident that she's back and better than ever.
