Pregnant Carrie Underwood Canceled Multiple Shows "Due to Illness"
Days before her sixth studio album, Cry Pretty, is released, Carrie Underwood will be ducking out of the spotlight.
On Wednesday, it was announced that the singer is canceling her performance at the Long Road Festival in England, which is taking place this weekend, "due to illness."
"We’ve just heard that Carrie is unable to play this weekend due to illness, and our primary concern is her speedy recovery," reads a statement on the festival's Twitter page. "We know you’ll have questions, and we promise to come back to you as soon as we can." According to Page Six, the singer has also canceled a performance at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park concert, also due to illness.
A representative for Underwood did not immediately return InStyle's request for comment.
Earlier this summer, the 35-year-old revealed that she is expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher, so many fans wonder if the aforementioned illness is related to pregnancy. Her reveal was rather unexpected given her remarks just weeks prior about her age prohibiting her from having a "big family."
“I’m 35, so we may have missed our chance to have a big family,” she told the Redbook.
Before her illness got in the way, Underwood was making the press tour rounds, most recently speaking out passionately of gender inequality in the industry.
When presented with a cliché that women don't want to hear women on the radio, she said, "That’s B.S. Even when I was growing up, I wished there was [sic] more women on the radio and I had a lot more than there are today.“
