Carrie Underwood’s fiancee Mike Fisher loses Olympic bid


You win some, you lose some: a week and a half after Carrie Underwood accepted Mike Fisher’s proposal for marriage, the hockey star was turned down in his bid to play in the Olympics.

The Ottawa Citizen reports that Fisher, 29, was left off the Canadian Olympic team list unveiled on Wednesday.

A center for the Ottawa Senators, Fisher is “having a career year,” the paper notes, and many speculated he’d be selected to represent Canada in the Winter Olympics in Vancouver February 2010.

The overlooked athlete can console himself by making wedding plans with Underwood, 26. On Dec. 20, the singer said “yes!” and donned the engagement rock: a flawless yellow diamond engagement ring. The ultra-private Fisher told “The ring was designed by Johnathon Arndt. I did ask her parents for permission. No date set for wedding yet but this summer sometime.”

“We’ve gotten to know [Underwood] quite well over the last year and she’s a great girl,” Mike’s father Jim Fisher said recently. “We just think they make a great couple.”

Carrie Underwood: Santa Brought Me a “Fiancé!”


Carrie Underwood says she got some great presents this year — among them, “a pair of pink warm fuzzy socks to keep my tootsies nice and toasty,” she writes on her fan club site.

Her best gift?

“I think you all know what Santa left under the tree for me this year…a fiance! Woo hoo!” writes the singer, 26, who announced last week that she and hockey player Mike Fisher are engaged.

She adds that her rat terrier, Little Ace, “is finally going to have a dad! We all couldn’t be happier!!!”

She says that the “mess of snow and ice” cut their holidays travel plans short, but they still “got to spend a little time in good ole’ Checotah,” she writes, referring to her Oklahoma hometown. “Not that I needed another day of all that food! I ate so much on Christmas Eve that I thought I might actually get sick! But it was sooooo goooood! Ace got lots of good stuff, too, from his poppy. Now I have to retrain him not to beg at the dinner table.”

Underwood and Fisher, 29, have yet to set a date, but he said they’re aiming to wed next summer.

Carrie Underwood’s engagement ring!


Carrie Underwood certainly has a lot to smile about this holiday season.

The newly engaged 26 year-old country singer turned up at her fiancé Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher’s game last night flashing some major sparkle on her left hand.

A spokesperson from the Diamond Information Center estimates the brilliant round diamond comes in at whopping five-plus carats, with an estimated value of close to $150,000. Whew!

Underwood, who famously declared her affection for her beau in the liner notes of her recent album, Play On (“I love you so much!” she wrote. “You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day.”), accepted Fisher’s proposal on Sunday, following a year-long courtship.

Carrie Underwood Is Engaged!


Carrie Underwood and Ottawa Senator hockey player Mike Fisher are engaged.

According to the Ottawa Sun, he confirmed the news at a press conference Monday. He said he popped the question Sunday, but declined to offer any other details.

“It’s true,” he said. “We’re both obviously excited and very happy.”

His teammate Chris Neil said Fisher, 29, called him shortly after he proposed. “I think it’s great,” Neil told reporters. “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.”

Underwood, 26, and Fisher have mostly been hush-hush about their relationship since they began dating last year.

But lately, they’ve been opening up.

Underwood gushed about the hockey player, 29, on the liner notes of her new CD, Play On.

“Thank you #12,” she wrote, referring to his 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.”
