Carrie Underwood gets engaged to hockey player beau!

Country superstar Carrie Underwood got an early Christmas present over the weekend - an engagement ring from forward Mike Fisher of the NHL's Ottawa Senators!

In a statement to People, Underwood's rep said, "I'm happy to confirm that Carrie Underwood is engaged to Mike Fisher, and the couple couldn't be happier. No wedding date has been set at this time."

Fisher himself confirmed the news to the Toronto Star today, saying, "It's true. We're both obviously excited and very happy."

Reportedly Fisher, 29, proposed to Underwood, 26, at his Ottawa-area home on Sunday afternoon, then texted the news to family and friends once she accepted.

Underwood and Fisher, who have kept their relationship largely out of the public eye, have been together for about a year. Though Underwood has regularly been spotted in the stands at Ottawa Senators home and away games, the pair has never appeared together at an official public event.
