Carrie Underwood shares funny video of new baby’s reaction to dad’s singing compared to hers

For all those dads out there who believe babies have an inherent bias toward mom, an endearing video shared on Instagram by country music star Carrie Underwood is not going to do much to alleviate those concerns.

In the video, Mike Fisher, the father of Underwood’s 5-month-old son Jacob, begins singing to the baby, who responds by crying hysterical.

But when mom picks up the tune —  Vince Gill’s “I Still Believe in You” — little Jacob instantly dries up.

“Everyone’s a critic…,” Underwood says in the caption accompanying the video.

This process is repeated several times, and each time dad sings Jacob bawls. Each time mom sings, he instantly stops as if mesmerized by her voice.

Of course, there are millions of country music fans who have the same reaction, so Jacob need not feel bad about dissing poor ol’ dad.

The video has been seen more than 2.4 million times as of this publication, so Fisher may have gotten a little more exposure than he bargained for, not that his voice is that bad.

And he had a theory of his own for little Jacob’s behavior — which suggests mom is still breastfeeding.

“The real reason is he was hungry and wanted your food,” Fisher said in a comment on the video, adding the hashtag “#notmysinging.”

Fisher, a former professional hockey player, and Underwood, were married in 2010 and have a second child together, 4-year-old son Isaiah Michael. Their first date was on News Year’s Eve in 2008, and their first kiss was when the ball dropped that night.

People Magazine reported that Jacob and his big brother have been joining dad on the road for Underwood’s Cry Pretty 360 arena tour.

The recording artist said they’ve been “renting houses” instead of hotels rooms to give Isaiah his own “area” where he “can go and color… or he can read and paint, whatever he’s feeling.”

“We’ve kind of gotten out of hotel rooms because for Isaiah, it’s hard for a 4-year-old who’s constantly looking to be stimulated,” Underwood said. “We started renting houses to have a little more normalcy and so he has a backyard to play in. He can be a little boy and get out some of his pent-up energy. And we can make breakfast and have those comforts of home. That’s a big difference.”

Underwood marked Father’s Day by sharing a photo on Instagram of Fisher with his sons and the family dog.

The caption read: “I feel like this picture pretty much sums up fatherhood! ? To all the frog catching, bedtime story reading, wrestling, diaper changing, outside playing, adventure seeking, tickling, cuddling, loving dads out there, Happy Father’s Day! [Mike] your boys sure do love you and are are so lucky to have you!”
