Carrie Underwood finds it 'difficult' balancing her career with motherhood

Carrie Underwood has found it "difficult" to juggle her career with motherhood.

The 33-year-old singer songwriter - who has 20-month-old son Isaiah with her husband Mike Fisher - has admitted she plans to take some time out of her busy schedule to celebrate the upcoming festival Halloween with her child, because she finds it hard when her "professionalism and mommyhood collide".

Speaking to E! News about parenting, the blonde beauty said: "I'm not going to lie, it's difficult when professionalism and your mommyhood collide - which is on a daily basis - but it's wonderful.

"It's like bring your baby to work every day. He's just there, and it's great he's on the bus and helping me get ready. It might make things take a little longer, but he's just my little sunshine. He makes me happy all day.

"[But] I've blocked off some time to be able to take him trick-or-treating a little bit and got him a costume and everything."

And the 'Before He Cheats' hitmaker has admitted she feels "guilty" her son's life has to revolve around her job, which sees them spend hours on a tour bus and stay in a variety of hotel rooms "in the middle of nowhere" when she is on tour.

She explained: "Sometimes I feel guilty that this is my son's life: We live on a bus and we're in a hotel room and sometimes we're in the middle of nowhere and it's not so great. It's not all glamorous."

And the star - who shot to fame in 2005 after winning 'American Idol' - has revealed she is "accepting" she needs to ask for help.

Speaking about the advice she would give to other parents, she said: "Ask for help. Accepting help is hard for me, but I'm learning."
