Carrie Underwood has it all, a thriving music career, a gorgeous family, killer legs that everyone lusts after, and even her own workout clothing line, Calia by Carrie. Her perfect life has now been marred forever after what just happened to her face that’s leaving her compleltely unrecognizable. It’s clear she’s embarrassed by her drastic new appearance and now it’s unknown when or if she’ll return to the stage.
An accident back in November changed her life forever that’s gotten worse recently as she’s come forward to talk about it. Initially, it was reported that the singer had just broken her wrist with a few cuts but the star just reported that there is more to the story than once stated.
According to E! Online:
Carrie Underwood’s recent fall may have been a bit more serious than fans first thought.
In a letter to her fan club members obtained by E! News, the country music superstar says she received between 40 to 50 stitches on her face the night of the incident.
“Most of you know that I tripped and fell and broke my wrist in November. I’m still doing regular physical therapy for that, but all is coming along. There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” Carrie wrote. “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”
The American Idol winner continued: “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 [my husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.
Now, here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same.”
In her post, Carrie expressed gratitude for those who have helped her heal. She also shared plenty of optimism for the year ahead including an announcement that she is returning to the studio next week.
“Here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful,” she explained to her closest fans. “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,” Carrie concluded. “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. I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”
Just two days after co-hosting the 2017 CMA Awards in November, Carrie’s rep confirmed to E! News that the “Before He Cheats” singer took a “hard fall” on steps outside her home. Her multiple injuries included a broken wrist and some cuts and abrasions.
“I’m so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family & friends who’ve been taking such great care of me,” Carrie wrote on social media soon after.
Carrie is a beautiful person inside and out and we are wishing her nothing but the best in her recovery.
Hopefully, this incident won’t stop her from being at the top of her game. She seems to be an exceptionally resiliant star with a deep faith in God and support of her family and her fans. She could use this incident to empower other women who suffer accidents that leave them physically scarred. It’s a shame she didn’t post a picture showing her new look and disguising it instead. However, we can understand that it probably takes a lot to come to grips with and when she’s ready to really “face” the world, we’re sure she will do just that with an important message.
