Carrie Underwood Reveals New Wedding Details & Fitness Secrets

Carrie Underwood’s pre-Christmas engagement to Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher was a surprise to her fans, since Carrie usually keeps mum about her private life. But fans will notice that the talented singer is slowly opening up a little more, in both her music and interviews.

Dial-Global reports new details on the upcoming Underwood-Fisher wedding, via interviews Carrie did with a Canadian radio station and TV show.
Carrie says after Mike proposed, they had to speed dial their news. “The night it happened we had to call everybody quickly,” she tells the radio station, “because we knew the news would get out pretty quick and within two hours someone had texted Mike and it was like, ‘Yeah, your little secret is out.’”

Carrie reveals Mike is more involved in the wedding planning than he claims. “He jumps in, and he always says he doesn’t. He’s like, ‘Oh, I don’t care. Just whatever you want!… But then I go and ask him, ‘What do you think about this?’ And he’ll go, ‘Oh, no,’ and he’ll weigh in. I think he’s going to be more involved than he initially though he wanted to be, which is good. I need help.”

The fitness-minded couple might even schedule time to visit a gym on their wedding day. Carrie told a Canadian exercise show, “Mike and I will work out together. It’s just kind of fun and I just know that no matter what, we’ll both be around for a long time and we’ll teach our kids good, healthy habits.”

”Genetics are not exactly on my side,” Carrie continues. “Once I got out of high school I packed on about 10 pounds, and once I was on American Idol I packed on another 10 pounds. I carry all my stress weight, all my potato chip weight, around my mid-section. You’ve got to fight genetics sometimes.”

Carrie fights the good fight on the road by bypassing backstage eats for healthier fare. “I do not eat catering,” she says. “I have a refrigerator on the bus and when we’re in a decent town that has a decent grocery store, I just go and stock up. My off days on the road are spent doing laundry and buying groceries.”

At home, Carrie has a personal trainer to keep her in line. “I need it,” she admits. “Especially with a tour coming up and a wedding to look good for.”
