Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher‘s relationship timeline proves they can take on anything together. From their best moments, like when they welcomed their two sons, Isaiah and Jacob, to their toughest times, including Carrie’s three miscarriages, these two remain devoted through thick and thin.
The duo’s love story dates back to 2008 when the country music star’s bassist Mark Childers tried to set her up on a date with Mike. At the time, Carrie was living in Nashville, while the hunk was playing professional hockey for the Ottawa Senators in Canada.
“I mean, can I make dating more difficult? Let’s get a hockey guy who lives in another country. Awesome,” the Grammy Award winner hilariously recalled on VH1’s Behind the Music. Though the date had yet to happen, Carrie couldn’t deny that she found Mike attractive.
The “Before He Cheats” singer ended up meeting him when she invited Mike backstage at one of her concerts. “Hot, hot, hot,” she recalled herself saying of the first time she laid eyes on her hubby, and the feeling was mutual. “First time I saw her,” Mike said on the MTV show, “[I thought] she was more beautiful in person than on TV.” After their initial encounter, Carrie and Mike soon started dating.
On New Year’s Eve 2008, they ended up having their first kiss as they watched the ball drop in Times Square. “We were in front of people, and he’s not a big PDA guy,” the musician told Glamour in 2012. “I figured, I’ll go in for it because he can’t leave me hanging, right? So I made him kiss me in public.” Mike enjoyed that kiss so much, he asked Carrie to marry him the following year in 2009.
After they tied the knot in July 2010, they welcomed their first son, Isaiah, in February 2015, and their second child, Jacob, in January 2019. Though Carrie and Mike endured three pregnancy losses between the births of their children, the couple pushed through the heartbreak together and now, “they always say how happy they are as a family of four.”
“The boys are their world,” an insider exclusively shared with Closer Weekly in June 2020. “Mike loves having two little boys to run around outdoors and to teach sports. And motherhood has fulfilled Carrie and keeps her feeling grounded.”
