Carrie Underwood is still aglow in newlywed bliss with husband Mike Fisher -- but don't mistake that glow for something else! The country superstar is not expecting her first child, as rampant rumors suggest.

"As soon as you get married that happens," Carrie tells Detroit radio station WYCD of speculation that she is pregnant. "We did the CMT Artists of the Year special, and they had all these celebrity chefs come in from the Food Network ... The food was great, but after the chefs were done they all sat back and had a few. Afterwards I got to meet them, and a guy was bombed. He said, 'So did you just have a baby?' I said, 'You do not ever ask a woman if she just had a baby. Do I look like I just had a baby?' ... He got in trouble, and I took his drink away."

Children are definitely in Carrie's future, she acknowledges, citing the influence of a few of her famous friends who've perfected the balancing act of motherhood and a singing career. "I know it's possible to be a great mother and to be on the road. You don't have to sacrifice that much. I see people like Martina [McBride] do it, and Faith [Hill] do it. I know it's a possibility. I just maybe need to sit down with them and say, 'How DO you do it?'"
