Underwood's engaged to NHL player Mike Fisher

Carrie Underwood is engaged to Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher, her publicist said yesterday.

No wedding date has been set for the couple, who have been dating for about a year, The Associated Press reports.

"The couple couldn't be happier," said publicist Jessie Schmidt.

Fisher, 29, reportedly proposed at his home Sunday afternoon and then sent messages to his friends with the good news later that day, People magazine reports.

Asked by The Associated Press last month what Underwood's family thought of Fisher, the singer said they were supportive.

"They love me and I would hope my parents would think we raised a good, smart girl, so she's going to do the right thing no matter what it is," she said.

Underwood, 26, has kept her relationship largely under wraps, but she gave Fisher a very public shout-out in the liner notes of her current album, "Play On," which was released Nov. 3.
