Carrie Underwood posted a sweet image of her son Jacob as a newborn baby on Instagram as he celebrated his 4th birthday this week. Carrie also posted a photo of his Amazing Spider-Man birthday cake.

She captioned the photos, “This was yesterday…and now you are 4. Happy birthday, sweet Jake…my sunshine!!! God truly blessed us when he gave us the miracle of you!!! We love you! Thanks, @iveycakestore, for the adorable and delicious cake! You guys are the best!”

Many fans reacted to the post, including one who wrote, “Wow, cute cake! Happy 4th birthday to Jake!” Another fan commented, “Happy Belated Birthday Jacob. May you have many Blessings come your way.”

Underwood recently talked about exercise, being a mom, and being on the road with People magazine. She said that over the years, her exercise goals have changed, “I feel like earlier in my career, I was working out more to be a certain size or fit into a certain aesthetic that I thought I wanted to be. And now I feel like I work out more to be strong and to have energy and longevity.” She added, “It really is playing the long game, right? I’ve worked out a whole lot and been frustrated because it wasn’t the results that I wanted. I feel like now, at this point in my life, you really do learn that it is a lifestyle, it’s balance. It is overall taking care of yourself.”

Carrie says she gets more opportunity to work out when she’s on the road, “When I’m at home, I feel like I’m mom-ing it. I’m doing the laundry, packing the lunches, I’m always cleaning, So when I’m on the road, and I live on a bus or in a hotel room, I’m not having to do all that stuff, so it frees up a little time. My schedule is still very regimented, and there’s all this stuff that I do, but my mornings are a little bit more flexible.”

She says that being on stage isn’t as easy as it looks, “It’s surprisingly physical being on stage — there’s a lot of cardio. I’m running around in heels, and I honestly write songs that I don’t give myself time to breathe.”

    This one was too close to call, so we are listing two country stars at number five. Dierks Bentley constantly rides his mountain bike, does many bike marathons, and sits in a barrel of ice as an annual ritual. He is a fit guy who loves playing outside and having fun whenever possible. Carly Pearce is reasonably fit and eats right 90 percent of the time, and does a daily run to stay on top of her game physically.
