Carrie Underwood says it’ll be “awhile” before she starts a family.

Opening up to InStyle magazine, the country music singer — who wed hockey hunk Mike Fisher in July — says she and her husband are in no rush to have kids.

“Oh, it’s going to be awhile,” Carrie says. “The other night, Mike was with some friends and their kids, and he sent me a funny text saying, ‘Watching my friend’s kids … Let’s wait a while.’ I didn’t grow up around kids, and I hope those motherly instincts are in me. I’m sure they are, but I don’t know what to talk about with a 4-year-old!”

Who needs a man when you’ve got your best friend?

Leaving their significant others at home, Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler were each other’s date at the 44th Annual CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee today (November 10).

Carrie (in Talbot Runhof) is co-hosting the show, and Kellie, who was waving her engagement ring around happily, is a presenter.

For her part, Carrie says she is looking forward to hosting tonight’s star-studded show.

The country star was asked on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show yesterday if she had any nerves ahead of the big event, which she will front for a third time alongside Brad Paisley.

“This is our third year hosting and I feel like we’ve got the hang of it and we just go out there and try to have fun,” she replied. “There will definitely be monologues and all that good stuff. We try to keep certain things running throughout the show. The biggest, most nerve-wracking part is getting in those meetings beforehand. Once you get going it’s really not that bad but there is a lot of prep work.”

The Cowboy Casanova singer also revealed that she will be performing Mama’s Song at the event, saying: “[My mom] cried when she first heard it and being able to be in the video… She absolutely loves coming and shooting things and she’ll be at the CMAs so I will get to sing to her.”

Carrie – nominated for two trophies including Female Vocalist of the Year – will also perform the opening number with Brad and Keith Urban.

has become Olay’s “first celebrity brand ambassador.”

“I am very excited about this partnership,” the country music sensation said at a press event this morning (September 8), adding that she’s been using “some product from Olay” for at least the last 10 years.

“Olay is something that women trust,” said 27-year-old Carrie. “And I feel like people also have a connection with me and trust me because I can’t lie.”

Beauty care, she said, “doesn’t have to be complicated. … You don’t have to have 50 things in your medicine cabinet.”

Olay will sponsor her Play On tour through the fall, and Carrie will appear in print and television ads for Olay’s “Challenge What’s Possible” campaign, scheduled to debut later this year.

Carrie Underwood has long had a reputation of being a diva — and now she has a medical excuse for it!

In high school, the country music sensation suffered from panic attacks. Christmas shopping, in particular, she explains in a Web MD story, “seemed to be my worst nightmare,” she says. “I’m a big personal space person. You know, if you go to the restroom, you use the stall that’s not near anybody. Or if you’re in the gym, you go to the treadmill where there’s space in between you. And it seemed like in crowded situations like that, people would just completely violate your personal space. So whenever I’d be in stores and there would be people touching me and kids running around, I couldn’t take it and I’d have to leave.”

Carrie has managed to brings those attacks under control, but fame was tough as first and she had to adjust to adoring fans. “They feel like they know you and they love you and that’s wonderful — they’re excited to meet you,” she says. “It just took me a minute to be able to figure that out and to be able to allow people into my space.”

Medical problem or just a diva?
