Carrie Underwood Reveals She Had to Get 40-50 Stitches in Her Face After a Recent Fall, Says It's 'Not Quite Looking the Same'

Jesus take the wheel! Carrie Underwood shared with fans late November that she had broken her wrist after taking a fall on the front steps of her home.

On New Year’s Eve, the country singer reflected on her year and revealed another component to her incident that she hadn’t previously addressed.

In a message shared with her fan club members, she said that  in addition to having surgery on her wrist, she required stitches on her face. ”

“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” she writes. “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”

She continued,

“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [Underwood’s husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”

Since the fall, Carrie has cancelled her scheduled events. In the seven weeks since the accident, she says her face is ‘not quite looking the same.’

“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful,” she adds. “I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”

Carried ended her note preparing fans for her altered appearance.

“And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”

The forewarning has us a bit nervous, but hopefully her facial injury isn’t as gruesome as she’s making it sound. We wish her the best.
