Country star Carrie Underwood announces first child

NEW YORK - Country superstar Carrie Underwood on Tuesday announced the birth of her first child with her husband, the hockey player Mike Fisher.

Underwood released on Twitter a photograph of the hand of their son -- Isaiah Michael Fisher -- and said he was born on Friday.

"God has blessed us with an amazing gift!" Underwood wrote.

Underwood in 2010 married Fisher, a Canadian hockey player now with the Nashville Predators.

Last month, a heavily pregnant Underwood was unable to travel to Los Angeles to accept the Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance for her gospel-tinged "Something in the Water."

Underwood, 31, is known for her healthy lifestyle and is a longtime vegetarian.

She became a vegan a couple of years ago but said that she reverted a bit during her pregnancy.

"Now I'm pregnant, it's like, I can't just order steamed broccoli. That's not going to cut it," she told CBS television's Entertainment Tonight in December.
