In an emotional interview, country star Carrie Underwood has revealed she suffered three miscarriages in the last two years.
The star told CBS News she reached her lowest point earlier this year when it seemed she might have a fourth.
“I was just sobbing,” she said. “I was like, ‘Why on earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid?'”
The 35-year-old said she “got mad” at God and asked: “What is this? Either shut the door or let me have a kid.”
She added: “For the first time, I feel like I actually told God how I felt.
“That was like a Saturday – and the Monday I went to the doctor to, like, confirm, another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great.
“He heard me,” she continued.
Before revealing her struggles with fertility, Underwood had faced criticism for suggesting she was too old to have children naturally.
In an interview with Redbook, Underwood said: “I’m 35, so we may have missed our chance to have a big family. We always talk about adoption and about doing it when our child or children are a little older.”
