Carrie Underwood took to Instagram this week to pay tribute to her husband, Ontario-born Mike Fisher.

The couple enjoyed a romantic night out in New York City to mark the 11th anniversary of meeting for the first time at a Toronto hockey arena.

“11 years ago yesterday, I met the love of my life,” Underwood captioned a selfie of the pair on Tuesday, “patient, kind, the best dad, handsome, of course! Someone who accepts me and all my flaws...the same as me in many ways...opposite in some.

“But he is my match. The iron to sharpen me....tonight we celebrated at @delposto . A rare night out with amazing food and even more amazing company and conversation. Here’s to so many more years together. Love you, babe!”

Underwood was introduced to Fisher, then an Ottawa Senators player, during a meet-and-greet at her Carnival Ride Tour concert on Oct. 7, 2008 at what is now the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. 

They started dating and the country star found herself frequently staying with Fisher at his home at 1038 Corkery Road, just 15 km from the Senators home arena, and visiting his family and friends in Peterborough, Ont.

As the relationship got more serious – they were engaged in December 2009 – Underwood and Fisher had a custom home built on a secluded lot at 1135 Spruce Ridge Road in Ottawa. They tied the knot on July 10, 2010 in Georgia.

When Fisher was traded to the Nashville Predators in early 2011, the couple put their brand new Ottawa home on the market (it sold in 2014 for almost $2 million).

Underwood and Fisher welcomed son Isiah on Feb. 27, 2015 and son Jacob Bryan this past Jan. 21. Last year, the country star revealed she suffered three miscarriages in 2017 and 2018.
