Carrie Underwood may sing about raising a child in her latest hit, "Mama's Song," but that doesn't mean she's ready for parenthood. Although Underwood married hockey player Mike Fisher in July, the couple isn't jumping on the baby wagon just yet.
"I didn’t grow up around kids, and I hope those motherly instincts are in me," Underwood says in InStyle's December issue. "I'm sure they are, but I don't know what to talk about with a 4-year-old!”
Fisher doesn't seem to be feeling a biological pull, either. Underwood says that he recently sent her a funny text saying, "Watching my friend's kids... Let's wait awhile."
Underwood has plenty to do without children. Her career is riding strong with her latest album, "Play On," and "Mama's Song" is rising on the charts after "Cowboy Casanova," "Temporary Home" and "Undo It" hit No. 1 earlier this year. And her 2010 tour is headed to Maryland, Michigan and Missouri in upcoming weeks.
Being sexy and successful doesn't have to come at the price of her dignity, Underwood tells InStyle. "I love things that make me feel comfortable but aren't too tight or showing too much cleavage. That might be some people, but that’s definitely not me. I can be sexy and still be classy. I don't do outrageous outfits, and I never will."
