And things soon became so fractious between Underwood and her partner that she felt the need to vent. People often say that a trouble shared is a trouble halved. So, the then 34-year-old headed to a bar with her mom and stepdad to discuss her relationship problems.
While there, her parents no doubt worked hard to lift Underwood’s spirits. They even took photographs of their troubled daughter posing in a hat. Underwood, however, was far too preoccupied to smile for the camera.
“At the time of the picture, I was feeling lost,” she said in an interview with the Daily Mail. “I was in a six-year relationship, I asked in my head if I should move on and to give me a sign. I was with my mum and stepdad. He does these re-enactments and had this hat, so we decided to try it on for a photograph.”
