The country star, Carrie Underwood revealed new details about her terrible accident that led the songstress to 40-50 stitches to her face and a broken wrist.
The 35-year-old “Cry Pretty” singer talked to Today show’s Hoda Kotb about the scary fall and then how she managed to recover during an interview which airs on Thursday.
“Plain and simple, it was just kind of a freak accident,” the singer told the host. “I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business. It could happen to anybody.”
Underwood added, “I say if I would have fallen anywhere else, it wouldn’t have been a problem. There was one little step that I went to catch myself on and I missed.”
She previously shared that she fell outside her home in Nashville back in November last year. The singer told Kotb that she was alone when the accident took place, aside from her 3-year-old son, Isaiah — the baby boy who was asleep upstairs.
Underwood stayed away from the spotlight and social media during the period of recovery, Below Deck alum, Adrienne Gang shared a photo with the singer back in December 2017, which was the first snap in which fans had seen Underwood’s post-fall face.
Then in January 2018, seven weeks after the scary fall, Underwood shared that she had surgery on her wrist and also required “40 and 50 stitches” to her face, she said it in a statement to her fan club members.
Kotb told Underwood that she believed that the singer looks “the same,” the pop star responded, “In the beginning, I didn’t know how things were going to end up. It just wasn’t pretty.”
“I have a dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste,” Underwood said. “Every day I’m feeling a little more back to normal.”
