Former Nashville Predators star Mike Fisher joined multitudes talking about the important women in the world on Sunday. He posted a heartfelt Mother's Day tribute to his wife, Carrie Underwood, and his mother, Karen Fisher. He also uploaded a photo to his Instagram Stories that showed Underwood receiving a "special delivery" of flowers from their son, Isaiah.
Fisher's post featured four different photos of his loved ones. The first three were of Underwood and showed her with their children. The fourth photo showed Fisher sitting next to his mother at an awards ceremony. They were both dressed to the nines and were enjoying the moment together. This image drew considerable attention as fans proclaimed that Fisher is a "carbon copy" of his mother.

"Beautiful, Fun, loving, kind, faithful, nurturing and competitive [smile emoticon]. Just a few words to describe the most important women in my life. Love you! Happy Mother's Day!" Fisher wrote in the caption of his Instagram post. Several fans responded by saying that "Carrie is a beautiful soul" while wishing both women happy Mother's Day.
Fisher turned heads in 2019 with his Mother's Day tribute to both Underwood and Karen. He posted a photo of Underwood backstage on the Cry Pretty Tour 360. The image showed the singer sitting in a chair and feeding Jacob as a stylist worked on her hair.
"Happy mother's day to all the moms out there and to this great mother!!" Fisher wrote. "She does it all like my mom. Grateful for them both!! The boys and I are Blessed!" This tribute was posted mere months after the couple welcomed their second child, Jacob Bryan Fisher.
Fisher was one of the many athletes that paid tribute to those that brought them into the world. Houston Texas defensive end JJ Watt posted several photos on Instagram that showed him embracing his mother, Connie, on the day of his wedding to Kealia Ohai. Watt also reposted one of Subway commercials that he and his family filmed. The matriarch of the Watt family has been called "superwoman" repeatedly due to raising three boys who all became stars in the NFL.
Whether it's Fisher in Nashville, Watt in Wisconsin or Lamar Jackson in Baltimore, countless stars are paying tribute to their mothers. They appreciate the lifelong support and believe that they wouldn't have found so much success without their mothers. Sunday was just another opportunity to voice this opinion.
