Carrie Underwood is not ready to be a mother.
The 29-year-old former American Idol winner - who married hockey player Mike Fisher two years ago - admits neither of them feel the time is right to start a family. "We're both so busy and it would be weird to have that much - you know, there's another person depending on you," she said.

With two hectic careers, Carrie and Mike are often separated for long periods, but she believes the time apart is not necessarily a bad thing. "It's so nice to miss him, and it's so nice to be happy every time I see him. We really cherish the time we have together."
