Describing it as "such a lovely moment," Underwood remembered answering Fisher, "I like you too."

The star admitted that time was not "without challenges". Everyone has had their challenges. We're not supposed to be together all day every day. At no other point in history has it been. There was always someone working, someone taking care of the children, the children going to school … No time in our humanity, we were all together all day, every day. But it was nice and refreshing to know: OK, we're solid. We like eachother. We love each other. We can do this. We can work together even in the craziest of times. "

And she's not immune to "mother's guilt" when she takes the time, but she knows it matters.

"Sometimes I go to the gym and just worry about my house imploding or something," she says. "I say to myself, no, this is better for me because I will be in a better mood for the rest of the day because I did this for myself. And when I start to justify it, when I really think about why I am train – and want to be there for my kids for as long as possible – then I think: this is a gift that I give myself, but it's also one that finds its way through the rest of my day and week and life Everyone benefits from the fact that I take 30 minutes to an hour in the morning to train. "

As her workout continues, she admits that her snacking has increased.

"On the other hand, there were snacks because I was home," she laughs. “At first I thought: I have to find out. It definitely came with cleaning out the pantry and trying to get things rid of. I packed things that I passed uselessly. It was a balance of figuring out how to prioritize myself and my health this year. "

"This year, if nothing else, I hope people love it and … it gets them in the Christmas spirit," she says. “It was a great thing for me to be able to sing Christmas music when things just weren't looking good in the world. I could ignore what happened and just go to my happy place and have Christmas in May. "

An added bonus was her older son Isaiah, who sang with her on the track "Little Drummer Boy".

"First I want to kick out – I had no idea how it would turn out," she says of the duet with her mini-self. “My son loves to sing. He wants to see music films and learns all the songs. And he has my lyrical brain. So she went like this, "If nothing else, he can come into the studio and see what his mother is doing and have this memory and this moment."

But in the end he did it.

"He did such a great job," said she, the proud mother. “He put his little heart into it. He threw his arms in the air. He just felt every word he sang, which was very special to me. "

Underwood says she would absolutely support a career in show business if he were interested – someday.

"Of course I would," she says. “Not at 5 o'clock. That was a special one-off thing. I hope people don't think, "Oh my god, she's going to be such a momager and push him into the music industry." He can do anything he believes, the good lord tells him to do it. But I would definitely support it, especially if it is country music because I love our family. I love nashville We will see."
