Being a mom is HARD. Even for superstar Carrie Underwood.
The "Inside Your Heaven" artist opened up to Natalie Morales on the "Today" show about life as a mom of two on tour. She and husband Mike Fisher just welcomed their second son, Jacob Bryan, three months ago.
Now, the whole family is embarking on her Cry Pretty Tour.
In short: She's "tired."
Morales noted that Underwood was setting the bar pretty high for working moms, but the artist disagreed, saying that her life wasn't any harder than anyone else out there.
"Everything that we all do is just as difficult, but in different ways," Underwood said.

But the artist says she's excited to have the opportunity to take her kids to work with her.
"Going out on the road with a 3-month-old... I'm tired," Underwood said. "But I mean, how many people get to take their children to work with them?"
The 36-year-old singer has been candid about her pregnancy struggles, from suffering multiple miscarriages to trying to get back in shape after her second child.
"I feel like moms put a lot of pressure on themselves to have it all together and know everything and plan for everything and you just ... it's impossible," Underwood said.
I’m going to be honest, “bouncing back” after having Jacob has been much more difficult than after I had Isaiah and I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. I go into the gym and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again...for my body to feel the way that I know it can. As I was working out today, I realized that for the past 11(ish) months, my body has not belonged to me. It was a perfect home for Jacob. And even now it belongs to him every time he drinks his milk. As I prepare for red carpets and for life on tour, right now I make a promise to myself to start appreciating what my body CAN do and stop focusing on what it can’t. I promise to stop analyzing every angle and every curve and every pound and every meal. I’m going to keep staying the path because it is a journey and as long as I’m always working towards my goals, one day I’ll reach them. I’m going to take it day by day, smile at the girl in the mirror, and work out because I love this body and all it has done and will continue to do! #bodyafterbaby #fitmom #healthy #staythepath @caliabycarrie
