Grammy Award-winning Country singer and animal advocate, Carrie Underwood, just gave birth to a bouncing baby boy with her husband Mike Fisher, who plays for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League. He was born February 27, 2015, and she just revealed his name (it’s adorable): Isaiah Michael Fisher. He inherited his father’s name, so let’s hope he also inherits his father’s hockey skills (or maybe his mother’s voice)!
In addition to the beautiful boy that she just gave birth to, Carrie has two furry children that are apart of the Fisher clan. They go by Ace and Penny. She loves her puppies to no end (just look at her Instagram), so this can only confirm that she will be just as great to her new son.
If you’re bringing a new baby home just like Carrie and Mike, here are some tips if you already have furry children:
1. When bringing a new baby into your home, parents don’t realize how much is changing in their pets’ lives. Furniture is being rearranged, nurseries are being stocked, and new smells seem to be taking over!
2. Make sure your canine uses his developed snout, and gets a good whiff of the various baby lotions, powders, and products that will become household staples in order to ease the transition. When possible, occasionally play clips of baby sounds (screams and all), which will help prepare pets for their impending routine disruptions; temper tantrums and midnight wake-up calls.
3. Pet parents often forget that having a baby will limit the amount of time and attention that you’ll be able to lavish on your pet. While it may seem like ruff love, prepare your pet for your soon-to-be hectic schedule by allowing them their independence. Modify your routine, replace quantity with quality time and make sure to spend at least 5-10 minutes daily with your pet sharing exclusive puppy love!
There’s no better way to merge both pet and people parenting than by having a big, happy, interspecies family. Just follow our lead and we guarantee that you will have harmony in the home from kindergarten through college!
Hopefully Carrie and Mike will use these tips. Animal Fair already knows they’re going to be wonderful parents. We wish this paw-fect family all of the luck in the world. Congratulations!
