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.”
Jessica Simpson has to be drunk, right? What other explanation could there be? She posted this video of herself on her Twitter, and it’s very odd. She’s seen placing a burning candle in her ear. WTF? Exactly what I was thinking.
Ken Paves‘ voice is annoying!
UPDATE: After the commenter below pointed it out – I looked it up and this process is called “Candling”. Ear candling, also called ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is an alternative medicine practice claimed to improve general health and well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal. According to medical researchers, it is both dangerous and ineffective. Claims that the practice removes earwax have been disproved. The claim by one manufacturer that ear candles originated with the Hopi tribe has also been disproven.
I never knew such a thing existed! (Doesn’t make the video any less strange, though!)
