Exclusive: Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher Building Dream Home in CanadaFriday, August 13, 2010 3:01 PM
All-American girl? Not anymore! After a month of marriage, a source says in the new Us Weekly, country sweetheart Carrie Underwood is leaving Nashville for Ontario — where her hockey-player husband, Mike Fisher, is stationed with the Ottawa Senators.
“They’re building a new house in Ottawa. She wants to spend as much time there with him as possible,” says the insider.
“Mike’s great with interior design. The house should be finished in a month or so. They’ll probably be in it by September.”
Settling into domestic life shouldn’t be a problem. “I love it here in Ottawa. She likes it, she knows how much I like it,” Fisher, 30, told Canada’s CTV on July 28. “Home is where we are, so let’s make this home.”
The extra space will come in handy, seeing as Fisher already has babies on the brain. “I know Mike loves kids,” says the source. “They were joking at the wedding about how many kids they’ll have. He wants more than she does!”
After their lavish July 10 wedding in rural Georgia, Underwood, 27, changed her last name to Fisher, but will “still be Carrie Underwood” professionally, the insider says.
