3rd Update: Ottawa Sun also confirming HERE. Anonymous sources so far, but I’d say this rumor is true. I’ll put up an official post when Carrie and Mike make their announcement.
2nd Update: Another Canadian radio station, Y100, is confirming Carrie and Mike’s engagement HERE.
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.
