    "At that point, it was just kind of like, 'Okay, like, what's the deal? What is all of this?'" the expectant celeb mom told CBS Sunday Morning

    "I had always been afraid to be angry. Because we are so blessed. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he's the best thing in the world. And I'm like, 'If we can never have any other kids, that's okay, because he's amazing.' And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can't. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.'"

  • As one can imagine, the consecutive pregnancy losses was an emotional reality to bear.

    "I got mad," Carrie declared during her interview about the fear of losing her fourth (and current) pregnancy. "Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can't have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid."

  • "For the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt," Carrie revealed.
