Carrie has revealed the second pregnancy was harder on her body but she looked amazing as always starting off the performance of “Southbound” strutting by a pool before making her way to the stage

She stopped to give Mike a quick kiss

before striking a pose…well sort of…at the end

I was supposed to “strike a pose” at the end of #Southbound Apparently, this is the best I could come up with! 😂 #JustStandingThere Thanks to all my party people for making this performance super fun!
