Carrie Underwood: I Would Love to Adopt

People say marriage is a lot of work. Which makes you wonder, what’s the point? Then you have couples like Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher come along, who remind the world that married life can actually be fun.

“Everyone says the first month is the hardest, or the fourth month or the eighth month," Underwood joked about her new NHL husband. “We’re just enjoying it.”

And Hollyscoop talked to Carrie about pregnancy rumor at the iHeartRadio concert in Las Vegas. The country crooner assured us:

“No babies." She continued, "I would love to adopt someday. I’ve told Mike this. I would love for us to be able to have a couple of kids and them grow up a little bit and we all as a family decide that’s what is best for us. I would love to be able to adopt, not right now. I’m talking years if not decades from now.”

So that should keep the rumors somewhat squashed for a few years. And anyway, Carrie doesn’t really have time to think about motherhood. She says her career has been “go, go, go.”

“You never really get to stop and smell the roses and really enjoy just being a person,” Carrie told PEOPLE.

Carrie performed at this weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday night. The two-day festival included performances from Jay-Z, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, along with a slew of other artists. Carrie unveiled a new hairdo that involved bangs while she was in Vegas. Now you know she’s feeling good. A girl doesn’t get bangs unless she’s feeling confident.

Underwood says her year has been “amazing.”

“When you get to reflect on everything, it’s really nice,” she said. “and I’ve had that chance this year.”

Underwood will be co-hosting the Country Music Association Awards on November 9 along with Brad Paisley, and she’s currently working on her fourth album. As of earlier this month, it’s been about halfway done. Underwood told Ryan Seacrest:

“I've been writing quite a bit. And I've been in the studio a little bit. So I probably have about half an album done right now and trying to fill in the gaps and figure out what pieces of the puzzle are missing, but it's a fun time right now figuring everything out."
