Carrie Underwood shares her husband's quarantine realization about their marriage

·2 min read

After a decade of marriage, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are still as devoted to each other as they were when they first tied the knot.

In fact, Underwood can point to one particular quarantine moment when she realized that she and her former hockey pro husband were stronger than ever.

It all started with something Fisher told her after the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to pause their busy lives and focus solely on spending time with each other and with their two sons, 5-year-old Isaiah and 1-year-old Jacob.

"We were a couple of months in and had been very much in quarantine just with each other for a little while," the singer told Yahoo Entertainment. "He said, 'You know what? I like you.'"

At first, Underwood admitted she was a little baffled by her husband's statement.

"I was like, 'What does that? You like me?'" she goes on to say. "He was like, 'I know I love you -- we've been married ten years this year and have two kids together. But this experience has shown me I like you, too.'"

The "Drinking Alone" singer adds that she felt the same way about her husband, describing the realization as "such a nice moment."

Despite the fact that she's unable to tour, Underwood has found plenty of ways to keep busy when she's not spending time with her family. She released a Christmas album called "My Gift" and is taping a special to go along with it.

The singer's also celebrating the five-year anniversary of her activewear brand, CALIA, with three pop-up shops in Nashville, Tennesee; Austin, Texas; and Santa Monica, California, for the holiday season.
