Mike Fisher has won the heart of Carrie Underwood, and broken ours.
The Ottawa Senators hockey player and the country singer are engaged to be married, according to Mike himself, who confirmed it to the Ottawa Sun yesterday.
Asked about it just moments before his team's game against the Boston Bruins at Scoriabank Place, he said he popped the question to Underwood on Sunday.
"It's true," said Fisher. "We're both obviously excited and very happy."
Sens' teammate Chris Neil said Mike Fisher called him with the news.
"I think it's great news. It's a long time coming. There's going to be a lot of broken hearts in Ottawa with all those girls who are in love with Mikey," said Neil.
Not to mention THG staffers who are in love with Carrie.
The future Mr. and Mrs. Carrie Underwood! Er, Mike Fisher!
The blogosphere had been buzzing after an Underwood family friend congratulated the former American Idol winner on the big news on Mike's Twitter page.
Underwood, who makes her home in Nashville, was in Ottawa through the weekend and was on hand for the Senators' 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.
The couple has been dating for about a year, and have (impressively) kept their relationship largely out of the media. Time to get started on that big family!
Congratulations, Carrie and Mike! Sad as we are that she's off the market, we have to say, we approve of Mike and the way he goes about his business.
He's also not a bad lookin' fella, right ladies?
