Carrie Underwood has told fans she will look “different” the next time they see her after she received over 40 stitches on her face following a fall at home in November.
The US country singer, who originally only reported that the fall had left her with a broken wrist, revealed news of her more severe injuries in a post on her fan club website on Monday, Entertainment Tonight first reported.
Underwood said she had not been “ready” to talk about her facial injuries, due to the level of “uncertainty as to how things will end up”.
???”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 Mike [Fisher, Underwood’s ice hockey player husband] that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in,” Underwood wrote.
Since the incident, Underwood has posted one new picture of herself on social media – a selfie on her Instagram account promoting her fashion line, Calia by Carrie Underwood, which showed the singer’s face largely hidden by a scarf. It is not known if the picture was taken after the incident. When in 5 degree weather, wrap your @caliabycarrie scarf around your neck and face…you keep warm AND look like an awesome winter snow ninja! #WinWin #StayThePath #LetItSnow #BabyItsColdOutsideA post shared by Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood) on Dec 27, 2017 at 12:30pm PSTMy boys playing in the snow!
