The world has fallen in love with Carrie Underwood's 7-month old son Isaiah, but as Underwood revealed in an interview with the Today Show, that almost wasn't his name.
Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, who plays hockey for the Nashville predators, had always considered the name Isaiah for their baby boy, but there was another name they liked as well. She says that it was really "a toss up between Isaiah and Caleb."
But when the couple's good friends had a baby, they chose to name him Caleb, since they hadn't known that Underwood and Fisher liked the name. So Underwood and Fisher had to take that name off the list, but there was still one other name that they were considering.
"Christian was on the list too," Underwood says, but they soon had to scratch that name off the list as well. "That was when 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was coming out, like right around that time, and I'm like, 'Christian's off the list, babe,'" she says with a laugh.
Isaiah's name has been in the news a lot recently, especially since Underwood included a song about him and her husband on her new album, Storyteller. The song, called "What I Never Knew I Always Wanted" is one of very few songs that were written after Underwood got pregnant.
Watch Underwood sit down with Today Show host Hoda to discuss her and Fisher's alternate baby names, and while you're at it, listen to Underwood's new song dedicated to her adorable baby boy, Isaiah.
We feel bad that Underwood and Fisher had such trouble with picking a baby name, but we're glad they ended up choosing Isaiah!
