Carrie Underwood: a baby would complicate her marriage
The 27-year-old singer - who tied the knot with Canadian ice hockey player Mike Fisher in July - isn`t ready to start a family just yet because she wants to spend more quality time with her husband.
She said: "We just want to be together and keep it as simple as possible. And I think a babywould just make things so complicated right now."
Both Carrie and Mike, 30, have been working solidly since returning from their honeymoon in Tahiti and she admits because the couple have spent so much time apart she doesn`t feel properly feel married yet.
She explained on US TV show `In the Spotlight with Robin Roberts: All Access Nashville-: "It was like, `See ya husband.`
"It was very strange. I really don`t feel like I`ve lived married life yet. It`s great. Whatever it is. Whatever this is."
However, once the country star completes her current tour in December, she is looking forward to settling down in Canada with her husband - who plays for the Ottawa Senators.
She said: "I`ll be more home-based. So I`ll get to spend, you know, my days with him. We`ll be more like a normal couple."
Despite spending so much time apart, Carrie insists Mike is the perfect man for her - because he loves shopping but is also "manly".
She explained: "He`s a perfect balance of a manly man and, like, a best friend. He`s a rugged man. He chops wood and he`s outdoors and all that stuff, and he plays hockey, but ... he also like loves to go shopping."
