Maternity clothes can be fashionable, too, as recent stars have proven. In fact, Carrie Underwood's cutest maternity looks prove that pregnancy can look downright glamorous. The singer rocks some bold, beautiful, and super glittery styles while expecting, and she just might serve as your favorite maternity inspo looks.
An American Idol winner turned all-around superstar, Carrie Underwood is the Grammy Award-winning singer of "Before He Cheats" and "Cowboy Casanova." She is also known for delivering amazing live performances with tons of costume changes. In the middle of a post about the tour for her sixth album, Cry Pretty, Underwood announced her second pregnancy on Instagram on August 8, 2018. She and her husband, former NHL player Mike Fisher, welcomed the arrival of their first son on February 27, 2015.
And if Underwood's first pregnancy is any indication, she's going to serve up some seriously fashionable looks this time around as well. In fact, the singer was vocal about her dislike for usual maternity clothes. "They're so hard for me to wear because there are so just so many that I don't like," Underwood said to InStyle. Instead, she opted for baby doll dresses, jackets, and leggings for her edgy, rock n' roll pregnancy looks.
1. Pink Metallic Jacket
When Carrie Underwood revealed her second pregnancy in a cute Instagram post, she appears to be sporting a CALIA Women's Anywhere Metallic Foil Perforated Half Zip Jacket from her own line of workout gear, as well as a pair of cool shorts. Leave it to Underwood to make maternity workout clothes look so darn chic. Does the pink hue hint at her second baby's gender?
