Carrie Underwood Wishes Husband Mike Fisher a Happy 40th Birthday In a Special Way
Country superstar Carrie Underwood has been laying low like most celebrities during the coronavirus pandemic. The singer has been spending time at home with her husband, Mike Fisher, and their two sons, Isaiah and Jacob, on the massive farm house they finished building last year.
Fisher just turned 40 in quarantine, and Underwood celebrated with him in the sweetest way (literally).
Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher have been married for nearly 10 years
Underwood and Fisher were introduced through Underwood’s bandmate, who happened to be a good friend of the former hockey player. The two first met backstage at one of her concerts, and they communicated from a distance for several months before meeting up again on New Year’s Eve in 2008.
After the two met for a second time, they instantly hit it off, and they started taking things more seriously. The couple dated for only about a year before Fisher proposed in December 2009. Seven months later, they wed in Georgia and honeymooned in Tahiti.
The two have been through a lot
More than a decade after they met, Underwood and Fisher are still going strong. The two have welcomed two boys, but they still went through their share of trials and tribulations through the years. They dealt with a long distance relationship for nearly their first three years together, until Fisher was traded to the Nashville Predators in 2011. And when it came to having kids, the two had a difficult time with their pregnancies.
Underwood and Fisher welcomed their first son, Isaiah, in 2015, and they were overjoyed. But in the years that followed, they went through three miscarriages, and it definitely tested the limits of their faith and wasn’t easy for them to deal with. They have since welcomed their second child, Jacob, and it’s unclear if they’ll have any more kids.
Underwood made her husband’s favorite breakfast dish to celebrate his birthday
Underwood and Fisher have been quarantining in their brand new, custom built farm house that was years in the making. And they have seemed to enjoy their time together judging from the various social media stories the two have posted. On June 5, underwood wished her husband a big happy birthday by baking his favorite dish: crockpot French toast. She posted a video to her Instagram story.
“Happy birthday….40 year old,” Underwood said with a laugh as Fisher ate his French toast. “Won’t be [funny] in three years for me,” she added, lightheartedly. Underwood also posted a Tik Tok of photos of Fisher through the years.
Fisher appears to be enjoying retirement
Fisher initially retired from the NHL in 2017. But in 2018, when the Predators were looking at making another Stanley Cup run, Fisher came out of retirement to play with the team. After the team was eliminated in the second round of playoffs, Fisher announced once more that he was ending his career.
These days, he’s been able to attend plenty more of Underwood’s shows and went on tour with her and their kids throughout 2019. He has even dabbled in a singing career, too. Underwood and Fisher are seen by country fans as “couple goals,” and we’re happy to know they still have fun in their relationship.
