One of the perks of being a pro athlete? The paycheck. At least, to those of us who don't play professional sports, making $5 million a year to play football seems like a pretty okay gig.

Another perk of that job? The athletes would probably say it's the hot wives and girlfriends.

Until they find out that their wives and girlfriends make more money than they do. 

But some guys, like Hank Baskett and Gerard Pique don't seem to care that their wives are bringing home the bacon. They're all... enlightened or something.

(Or they just like the money and don't care who makes it. That's probably it.)

Here are 9 athletes who make LESS money than their wives or girlfriends:

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher have been married for almost four years already with no baby bump in sight.

Totally unacceptable to the tabloids!

Carrie Underwood Pregnant; Kelly Clarkson Divorcing?

In an article made up entirely of quotes by people who may or may not actually be friendly with Carrie, Life & Style reports that 2014 will be the year of "baby joy" for the singer.

It's not the worst prediction ever.

Carrie's tour ended last summer and she has some time on her hands after a busy fall hosting the Country Music Awards and starring in The Sound of Music on NBC.

On the same cover Life & Style rehashes the Kelly Clarkson marriage drama that's been reported - but never confirmed - numerous times before.

But isn't that why we love celebrity gossip magazines? "Carrie Underwood Isn't Pregnant and Kelly Clarkson Has A Nice Life" won't sell as many issues ...

The famously private Carrie Underwood opens up about her marriage to NHL player Mike Fisher in the new issue of Us. Not sure how they got her to agree to that.

Perhaps to clear the air about their marriage being on the rocks? It's been reported several times, and while she says it's not true, maybe the rumor got to her.

The American Idol winner does admit that it's been a challenge ...

Carrie Underwood on Marriage

After nine months as long-distance newlyweds, Fisher was traded from Ottawa to Nashville in February. Carrie Underwood has been giddy ever since.

"It was like, he's coming to live with me! I can go to work, he can go to work, and we can both come home, and we'll be together," she gushed to Us.

But rooming together in her gated Brentwood, Tennessee, development, though joyous, has led to some growing pains and difficulties as well.

"To be honest, on our days off, we just hang out. Just learning how to live together has been fun and frustrating and everything in between."

They watch TV and read the Bible, says a source, who adds, "They're not into partying." As for kids, she's in no hurry: "We have plenty of time!"

Carrie Underwood hearts being married to Mike Fisher, but keeps her personal life so private there are hardly any pictures of them together in public. Respect.

Opening up about her marriage in a rare interview, she tells People that given their careers, they haven't been together too much since their summer wedding.

But, the country singer adds, marriage is a perfect fit for her.

Mike Fisher, a.k.a. the Luckiest Man Alive, wed Carrie July 10.

"Mike is the missing piece to my puzzle – he's a few pieces," the American Idol champion says of her NHL star husband. "He makes me a better person."

While the winters in his native Canada can be rough ("I can't do cute heels in the winter!"), they're content to shuttle between Nashville and Ottawa homes.

"It's not like we have office jobs where one of you can transfer!" Underwood says, then states the obvious by noting that "It's not a conventional marriage."

Still, Carrie says marriage is something for which she gives thanks, along with other blessings, like her dog Ace and her family. All together now: Awww!

Looks like July 10 was quite the day for celebrity weddings.

John Krasinski married Emily Blunt in Italy, while LaLa Vazquez and Carmelo Anthony tied the knot in NYC. But they weren't the only stars to exchange vows.

In Greensboro, Ga., Carrie Underwood married Mike Fisher!

The Grammy-winning singer and the NHL player wed at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, with more than 250 guests on hand to witness the bliss.

"We could not feel more blessed to have found each other and to have shared this day with our friends and family that mean so much to us!" the pair said.

The soon-to-be-newlyweds at this year's Grammy Awards.

During the ceremony, which featured the couple's favorite Bible verses and classical music, the bride walked down the aisle in a Monique Lhuillier lace gown.

Security was tight, with the property closed to anyone not working at the hotel or instrumental in making the Carrie Underwood-Mike Fisher nuptials happen.

Even the road leading into the hotel was closed to traffic.

Speaking of privacy, the newlyweds were scheduled to spend their first night together as husband and wife in the Ritz's 5,400-square-foot Presidential House.

After Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher got engaged last December after about a year together. Now they can get crackin' on that big family she wants!

Congratulations to the amazing and happy couple!

Bride-to-be Carrie Underwood has her wedding day priorities set: Food.

She and Mike Fisher have set a wedding date, but it's "not one that we're openly talking about" and all she cares about is that it's "so laid back."

A Winner Again

Not exactly a Bridezilla or someone looking for attention at every turn.

Imagine when someone agrees to marry Kim Kardashian. There will be easily 10-20 Tweets per hour updating us on every facet of the process.

Carrie and Mike have picked out the "food and we know where we're going to be - the big hurdles." Everything else? "We don't care," she says.

Mike, you got a keeper dude.

Reports say Mike Fisher will marry Carrie Underwood this summer.

Carrie got engaged to Mike Fisher in December. While they've done all they can to keep the details private, they are clearly smitten with each other.

"Everybody would always ask me questions like, 'What have you always dreamt of? This is your day,'" says the 27-year-old American Idol winner.

"But truthfully I never even thought about it until I was engaged. I wasn't one of those little girls. So I have no idea what I'm doing, basically!"

Somehow we think she'll manage.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher recently got engaged. He confirmed this, and she's been spotted at his NHL games (wearing her engagement ring, no less).

But seeing the hockey player and country singer out and about together is quite rare and quite cute. The notoriously low-key pair like to do their own thing.

Which is awesome for them, but equally awesome are the rare occasions when they step out. Such as an appearance at a charity event Monday in Canada.

Here's a picture of them:

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher seem very happy together.

The soon-to-be-married lovebirds were on hand for the Ottawa Senators' annual Soirée fundraiser to raise money for four local hospital foundations.

We're looking forward to seeing Carrie's role as a sexy flight attendant on a certain CBS comedy, but we'll settle for more sightings like this as well.

In case there were doubts about Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood getting engaged, this photo taken at last night's NHL game in Ottawa should clear 'em up.

While the Senators forward tangled with the Boston Bruins on the ice, the country star showed off her ice in the stands... and it appears Mike did a heck of a job.

That thing is practically the size of a hockey puck! Well, not really, but what we're trying to say is that it's big. And we can't think up many good hockey puns.

Asked about the engagement again last night, Fisher wouldn't give away any details, saying only that it's true, and that "we're both excited and very happy."

The Sens lost 2-0 last night, but somehow, we can't imagine Mike cares. In fact, he'd probably take this cutie over the Stanley Cup any day ...

CENTER ICE: Carrie Underwood's ring gets the once-over. Good job Mike!

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?

As one of the few celebrities who likes to keep her personal life guarded, Carrie Underwood rarely gives us insight into her relationship with NHL star Mike Fisher.

Much as we'd like to know more, we can appreciate this.

The country star made a rare public declaration of love for Fisher this week, though, giving the hockey player a shout-out on the liner notes of her new CD, Play On.

"Thank you #12," she writes to Mike Fisher in the notes, referring to the Ottawa Senators center's jersey number. "You are the most amazing addition to my life!"

"You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day... xoxo, Carrie."

All together now ... Awwww.

If Carrie Underwood loves Mike Fisher, then so do we!

Though the couple have mostly remained under the radar, recently they've been more open (a little more open) about their nearly year-long relationship.

Carrie, who is hosting a two-hour variety show on Fox December 7, has not gone totally out of her way to dodge questions (and cameras) as she once did.

Last month Fisher talked to The Sens Show, an online news program for his team, saying the busy twosome work hard to spend their free time together.

"Obviously it's tough with our schedules to see each other," he said at the time of his American Idol-winning love. "But we find a way to make it work."

True love always does find a way. Sniff.
