Carrie Underwood challenged by baby name game: 'It's hard' to decide!

She's sold millions of albums, has six Grammy Awards, 18 No. 1 songs and a brand-new album, "Greatest Hits: Decade #1." But when it comes to picking a name for the baby boy she's expecting, Carrie Underwood finds it just as challenging as most parents-to-be!

As she explained on TODAY Tuesday, "There's kind of a couple [of names] that we're okay with, but it's hard, labeling your child for the rest of its life," she said. "I was like, 'Why don't we come up with a short list we're both agreeable to and then meet the little guy and see what we're feeling.'"

One thing it won't be: "Fly." That was a joke her husband Mike Fisher tweeted out recently.

Sometimes, she admitted later to Kathie Lee and Hoda, pregnancy actually catches her by surprise: "I'll just walk by a mirror, and I'll just ... I forget [that I'm pregnant] and then I'll see myself and I just start laughing.... My body's not mine right now."

Meanwhile, as she gets ready to release her greatest hit ever (her baby!), Underwood says putting together 10 years of her musical chart-toppers was a delight. 

"I'm the worst at relishing the moments as they happen, and so many of us don't really take the time to stop and look around and enjoy things as they're happening," she said. "So putting this all together has been really good for me."

Baby Underwood is due in the spring, while "Greatest Hits: Decade #1" is now available in stores and online!
