LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Carrie Underwood has dated high-profile celebs ranging from Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford, but the country star says it’s NHL star boyfriend Mike Fisher that she’s stuck with the longest.
“[It’s been] close to a year now,” the former “American Idol” winner said during an appearance airing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday. “That’s the longest relationship I’ve had. I joke and say my dogs are the longest relationship ever.”
At first, she admitted, she was put off by the idea of dating a hockey player.
“We had a friend, one of my band members was trying to hook us up,” she said. “He was like, ‘I have this guy for you,’ I was like, ‘Oh, that’s great. What does he do?’ ‘He plays hockey.’”
Her next question? Whether or not he had his own teeth.
“No, but he’s got a really good dentist,” Carrie said her friend answered, adding that Mike’s Ottawa home was a bit far. “I love Canada, but that is a long distance relationship.
“We see each other more than people think we see each other,” she explained. “We don’t go out publicly, we just do our thing.”
However, while the stars are spending time together, don’t expect them to shack up any time soon.
“No, call me old fashioned,” Carrie said. “The next guy I move in with will be my hubby. Whoever that is. I’m not saying it’s going to be him.”
Ellen had other plans for her, teasing Carrie that they were going to get married and have babies.
“Why not? You have a calendar?” Carrie said. “We can just start filling in dates.”
