Update: An Ottowa radio station DJ is confirming the Carrie Underwood engagement rumors via twitter: “Congratulations to our friends Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood who are now happily engaged!”

I hesitate to post this, because there isn’t a shred of evidence anywhere that this is true, but in the last couple of hours, there’s been a rumor running rampant on twitter that Carrie Underwood got engaged to her boyfriend, Mike Fisher of the Ottawa Senators Hockey team.

Supposedly a friend, Colin Peters tweeted, “Congratulations to mike fisher and Carrie Underwood. We just got the call at our family Christmas get together #fb.”

@colin_peters twitter is protected, so there’s no way to get to the original tweet, if it does indeed exist. So hey, file it under the rumor mill. We’ll eventually find out if it’s true or not.

Update from comments:

According to Rick of the Conservative Journal, the Twitter account was originally open, and “did in fact say that Carrie and Mike were engaged.”

“Someone asked him to explain and he went on to say that they were engaged. He further explained that he was with Mike’s cousin when the family called and let him know. Whether or not it’s all true, no one knows.”

Carrie fans, Windmills, and CarrieRocks both read the original tweets.

“I wrote to the original poster on twitter, Collins Peter, before he protected his account to private, ” says CarrieRocks, “He was nice and wrote me back a few times, confirming that they were engaged. Apparently he is friends with Mike Fisher’s cousin, so that is how he found out.”

Windmills says Peters was “freaking out at the attention, ” and closed his twitter account. “Carrie was at the Ottawa Senators game in Ottawa last night and she’s been up there for a few days, ” she says, “The Senators have a game tomorrow. Chances are the media will be all over Mike tomorrow at his morning skate with questions.”

“Either way this is going to make Carrie dislike twitter even more :p”

Ha ha. Indeed.

  1. The Twitter account was originally open to all and did in fact say that Carrie and Mike were engaged. Here’s the exact message:

    “Congratulations to mike fisher and Carrie underwood! We just got the call at our family Christmas get together #fb”

    Someone asked him to explain and he went on to say that they were engaged. He further explained that he was with Mike’s cousin when the family called and let him know. Whether or not it’s all true, no one knows. But the tweets did exist.

  2. I wrote to the original poster on twitter, Collins Peter, before he protected his account to private. He was nice and wrote me back a few times, confirming that they were engaged. Apparently he is friends with Mike Fisher’s cousin, so that is how he found out. He is a musician in Canada, per his myspace account, but not a hockey player.

  3. She has been pretty open about talkiing about him, so I’d say she is ready to commit! Sounds real to me. Congratulations to Carrie and Mike!

  4. I saw the tweets too and can confirm what Rick said about how the guy identified himself. Last I checked he was freaking out at the attention he was getting so he made his twitter account private and deleted identifying information.

    It could be a giant hoax in which case what a jerk. If it isn’t a hoax this guy just learned a valuable lesson about viral networking.

    Carrie was at the Ottawa Senators game in Ottawa last night and she’s been up there for a few days. The Senators have a game tomorrow. Chances are the media will be all over Mike tomorrow at his morning skate with questions.

    Either way this is going to make Carrie dislike twitter even more :p

  5. I know Carrie was at the last two Senator’s home games (I watch the games on Center Ice and she was shown in the crowd) so at least we know she was with Mike Fisher over the last few days, including last night. Wasn’t there a rumor months ago that Fisher was seen shopping for an engagement ring?

  6. Wonderful news (assuming it ends up being confirmed). Congratulations to Carrie and Mike!

  7. No No No….. Miss Underwood has to marry Cookie! Just kidding! Congrats to Carrie if it is indeed true! I feel sorry for her that it got out like this. Twitter bugs me sometimes.

  8. If it’s true: Congrats Carrie!!! She’ll be the second married idol! No third, right?

  9. No No No’ ¦.. Miss Underwood has to marry Cookie! Just kidding!

    That was my first thought too! But, seriously, congrats to them if it’s true. I hope we get to see photos, she’ll make a beautiful bride.

  10. cookcricket your right. Kris, and then Rueben just got married earlier this year, I believe and now Carrie (we hope). The Idols aren’t a marrying group as they seem to really work very hard and that takes it’s tole on relationships.

  11. I really hate how this poor guy got slammed hard on Twitter ack people need to be nice, god! I wouldn’t be shocked at all if its true and Mike seems like a terrific guy.

  12. No No No’ ¦.. Miss Underwood has to marry Cookie! Just kidding! Congrats to Carrie if it is indeed true!

    Look at it this way, maybe she got on engaged on his b-day…

  13. If it’s true, congratulations to Carrie and Mike. She seems so happy and her album liner notes were very telling. And she’s mentioned him more in her press/interviews.

    Yeah, I’m not surprised he made his twitter private.

  14. I really hate how this poor guy got slammed hard on Twitter ack people need to be nice, god! I wouldn’t be shocked at all if its true and Mike seems like a terrific guy.

    Was he getting slammed that bad? I saw a few tweets from Carrie fans who were saying that if it was true he shouldn’t have said anything seeing as neither Carrie nor Mike has confirmed it. I don’t disagree with that tbh.

    IMO what freaked the guy out is the retweets and the realization he was going to be pointed out as the source for the rumor. His name’s out there and his twitter account had a lot of identifying information (which was really stupid).

    It’ll be surprising if the rumor isn’t addressed sometime tomorrow morning. At this point I hope it’s true because it’ll be awkward denying it if it’s premature or flat out false.

    By the way Carrie did a new radio interview in Ottawa on Thursday. She talked about her upcoming tour and about Mike too.

    Congratulations to our friends Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood who are now happily engaged! 18 minutes ago from web

  16. Well, good for them. I don’t know him from Adam, pardon the expression. And, even though I am not a country fan and really don’t follow Carrie’s career, as a Cook fan, I 100% appreciate how she’s promoted him. As such, he should give them a really great gift. Like a puppy! Ha. Just like he did the van Zandts.

  17. LOL carrie fisher. Damnit I was just watching star wars literally right before looking at this post.

    That would be mad confusing if she changed her last name! She’d better not XD. I doubt she would for the obvious reason, and because celebs rarely change their last names, and underwood is such a nice last name XD

  18. I am so happy for Carrie. I glad she has found someone to love her both inside and out. She had a string of not so successful relationships but they all help bring her to Mike who I think is great for her and she for him. When’s the wedding? Congrats Carrie.

    Hope Mike knows the ring has got to be platinum Carrie doesn’t do Gold she goes right to Platinum. :mrgreen:

  19. Oh, I hope this is true!!! They make a lovely couple, and Carrie has often said that she doesn’t want music to be her whole life. Besides being athletic and good-looking, Fisher has made trips with the group World Vision, reminding me of Carrie on the Idol Gives Back special where she was carrying the African child to its mother’s grave. Both seem like compassionate, grounded people. And yes, the wedding pictures will be beautiful. I hope it is this summer. :)

  20. Mike Fisher is truly a stand up guy. I don’t think you could find someone better. They’re both very lucky to have found one another.

  21. An Ottawa country radio station is also confirming it.

    Y101 has confirmed that Mike and Carrie are engaged.

    Reports have been swirling that Carrie Underwood is engaged to Ottawa Senator Mike Fisher. The news was first brought to attention by a family friend, identified as Colin Peters, through a Twitter post that read, “Congratulations to Mike fisher and Carrie underwood! We just got the call at our family Christmas get together :)”

    Initially, there was no confirmation that the couple plan to get married, however Y101 has confirmed that Mike and Carrie are indeed engaged.

    Apparently one of their morning DJs Mark said his confirmation was from an email from Mike himself.

    I’m so so happy for Carrie and Mike if this is true!! As a fan I’ve never seen Carrie as happy and deep in love with anybody as she’s been with Mike and he truly seems like a stand up guy like Lexus says.

  22. It’s sounds like it’s true and if so, congrats to the happy couple. They certainly will make a gorgeous bride and groom. :)

  23. Congrats to them if it’s true. Hockey players are very nice people off the ice and he seems like no exception. He also may be named to team Canada for the upcoming olympics.
    Re: the tweet, I don’t get people ” protecting ” their tweets. Isn’t the point of twitter to mass comunicate?
    Otherwise, why not use FB or something else more private
    if you don’t want the world involved ? IDK, I don’t have any of them so maybe I just don’t understand.

  24. Mike has confirmed his engagement to Carrie! Congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple!! AHHHH I am full of fangirl squeeeee about this, I’m so happy for them!!

    Senators heartthrob Mike Fisher and his country singer superstar girlfriend Carrie Underwood are engaged to be married.

    Fisher confirmed their engagement just moments ago as the Senators prepared for tonight’s game against the Boston Bruins at Scoriabank Place. Responding to questions, he said he popped the question to Underwood on Sunday, but declined to offer any other details at this point.

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

    Senators teammate Chris Neil said Fisher called him not long after popping the question.

    “I think it’s great. 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.

    Here’s an earlier article from the Ottawa Citizen with some comments from an unidentified source.

    http://www.ottawacitizen.com/sports/2010wintergames/Mike+Fisher+Carrie+Underwood+engaged+reports/2365338/story.html

    Ottawa Senators centre Mike Fisher got engaged to country music star Carrie Underwood, a family friend has confirmed.

    Surrounded by his family and friends, Fisher, 29, popped the question at his home Sunday afternoon before texting the good news to many of his close friends later in the day.

    “He was pretty excited.” said the source, who did not want to be identified. “She’s a great gal and I think they’re made for each other.”

    The source said the text message was received around 9 p.m. Sunday night. When asked why Fisher might have informed friends via text message the source merely said, “he’s a simple guy.”

    It’s not known where the ring came from but it was given to Underwood, 26, on Sunday. It’s believed that none of her family were present at the time.

  25. I wonder if they live in Canada or the US?

    Well, I would think their primary residence would be in Canada since he is more tied to a location than she is. You can record anywhere, but he has to be at a certain number of games in Ottawa. I don’t know.

    He’s also Canadian, so maybe she’ll go for dual citizenship and I suppose any children would also have dual citizenship.

    Perhaps, in the next few years, she’ll slow down a bit professionally and concentrate on a personal life.

  26. They keep updating the Ottawa Sun and Citizen articles I posted with new quotes!

    There are from 2 of Mike’s teammates.

    Fisher’s teammates also expressed their delight.

    ‘Good for him. It’s great,” said winger Shean Donovan, adding that he was hoping to get an invitation to the wedding.

    And winger Chris Neil, who was also Fisher’s long-time roommate, said the engagement was “a long time coming.”

    “There are going to be a lot of broken hearts here in Ottawa, all those girls who are in love with Mikey,” he said. “But he’s marrying an awesome girl. It’s unbelievable for him.’ 

    Neil said he first heard about the engagement through Twitter, about 20 minutes after it happened. But Fisher called to tell him the news shortly afterward.

    Chris Neil is Mike’s best friend in hockey and he found out about the engagement through Twitter before Mike could even call him *facepalm* Thanks Twitter!

    By the way the Ottawa Citizen keeps saying they met last March at Carrie’s Ottawa concert but that’s not true. Carrie herself confirmed that they met at her Toronto concert in October 2008. She’s even jokingly complained that she could’ve met him earlier if he had come to her Ottawa show.
