Ace and Penny are Underwood’s two pet pooches and are each wearing their own pink and blue shirts in the pic announcing that one is going to be a big brother and one is going to be a big sister.

Underwood, a six-time Grammy winner, met Fisher late in 2008 at one of her country music concerts. The couple became engaged in December 2009 and married in July 2010. A statement signed “Mike & Carrie Fisher”given to People Magazine following the Georgia wedding said, “We could not feel more blessed to have found each other.” Underwood has admitted that she would love to have at least two children, but no more than four. She is expected to host the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley in November. Underwood and Paisley have co-hosted the ceremonies since 2008.
