Marriage to professional hockey player Mike Fisher apparently agrees with country music superstar Carrie Underwood, 27. “Mike’s the missing piece to my puzzle he’s a few pieces,” Underwood tells PEOPLE Country in its November issue. “He makes me a better person.”
Though Underwood finds Canadian winters a challenge (“I can’t do my cute heels in the winter!”), Underwood and Fisher alternate between their Nashville and Ottawa homes. It’s not like we have office jobs where you can transfer!” she says. “It’s not a conventional marriage.”
Underwood says the marriage is something for which she is grateful, along with her dog Ace whom she “missed like crazy” while on her two-week Tahitian honeymoon with Fisher. Ace served as ring bearer at the wedding. When a dog is part of the wedding party, surely babies are soon to follow…
You can see Underwood co-host and perform at the upcoming CMAs on November 10.
