OTTAWA — The honeymoon glow still hasn’t worn off for Carrie Underwood, judging by her gushy remarks about her husband, Ottawa Senators star Mike Fisher, in a country music special edition of People magazine.

Underwood says Fisher is not only “ a better person than I am,” he also “makes me a better person.”

She also reveals that Fisher is the first person she calls with news and he now sleeps in her bedroom — a switch from the days when they were unmarried and “he had his own stuff in his own room.”

The honeymoon in Tahiti following their July wedding was wonderful, Underwood says in the cover story. But she yearned for her dog Ace constantly.

“When I went on my honeymoon, it was the worst thing ever being away from Ace for two weeks!” she tells People. “That’s the longest ever. Great honeymoon, but it was horrible without Ace. I was e-mailing my sister, ‘Send me pictures!’ I missed him like crazy.”

Underwood also says that under his tough hockey-player veneer, Fisher is fond of shopping and the couple likes to watch their favourite TV shows together.

“He likes to shop! There’s this rugged side, but we can also shop together and watch American Idol and The Bachelorette together!” Underwood says.

Fisher’s constant attention to his bride has clearly paid off. “Mike’s the missing piece to my puzzle. He’s my best friend and he makes me happy,” she says.

Referring to Fisher’s role as her beau in the video for her latest single Mama’s Song, Underwood reveals, “Mike doesn’t want to be in the spotlight, but he agreed to do it. At this point in my life, it would be weird to have a ‘rent-a-husband’ and be snuggling up to some guy I don’t know.”

Underwood, 27, also says that while she looks forward to seeing Fisher become a dad, the couple is in no hurry to have children.

“Right now, it wouldn’t be fair to either of us or the kid. It’s not like, ‘Biological clock! Gotta have them now!’ I’ve got plenty of time. I just want to enjoy being married.”

She also praises Fisher’s rock-solid spirituality.

“Mike is such a strong person, and he talks about his faith openly. He doesn’t go around making people feel bad, but when he’s asked, he’s honest. That’s how I want to be.”
