Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are nine years strong!
This Wednesday (July 10) celebrated the couple's latest marriage milestone, as the retired hockey player took to Instagram to honor his wife on the ninth anniversary of their wedding day. “9 years feels like 9 minutes!!!! Grateful to be on this journey with you @carrieunderwood!!" Fisher wrote alongside a sweet picture of him and the country star cuddled up together. "Time sure does fly #datenight#happyanniversary.”
The 39-year-old athlete also shared a never-before-seen memory from the lovebirds' nuptials, a Kodak moment taken of the newlyweds seemingly having their first dance. “She used to think I was funny,” Fisher quipped in the caption with laughing-face emojis.
Underwood started dating the NHL star after the pair met after one of her concerts in 2008 and carried on a long-distance relationship before the duo sealed their love with a kiss on New Year's Eve that year. Fisher eventually proposed to the "Cry Pretty" superstar in December 2009, and the pair tied the knot in front of more than 250 guests in July 2010 at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Georgia.
The married twosome also shares two children: 3-year-old Isaiah (born February 2015) and six-month-old Jacob (born January 2019).
In a previous interview with PEOPLE last month, Underwood described her husband as her soulmate. “I feel like he is the person I was meant to be with,” the artist told the publication. “I had dated guys and kind of knew, like, ‘No.’ Nothing was ever really wrong, but nothing was really right either. With him, it was like a good partnership. It was an easy relationship to be in.”
