Carrie Underwood’s decision to extend her Las Vegas residency has reportedly caused some friction in her marriage to former NHL player Mike Fisher. According to a source close to the couple, Fisher is “not happy” with the extension, which will keep Underwood away from home for longer periods of time.
The source says that Fisher, who takes on the primary caregiver role for their two sons, is feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility of managing the household and raising the children while Underwood is on tour. The extended residency is said to have exacerbated this dynamic, leaving Fisher feeling resentful.
Despite the reported tension, the source says that Underwood is understanding of Fisher’s concerns and is seeking to find a balance between her career and her family life. The couple is committed to working through their differences and maintaining their strong relationship.
Underwood’s Las Vegas Residency
Underwood’s Las Vegas residency, “Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency,” has been a commercial success, captivating audiences with its dazzling spectacle and showcasing Underwood’s powerful vocals. The residency was initially scheduled to run for a limited engagement, but due to its popularity, it has been extended into 2024.
The Impact on Fisher and the Family
Fisher, who retired from professional hockey in 2018, has been the primary caregiver for their two sons, Isaiah and Jacob. The extended residency will mean that he will have to shoulder even more responsibility, which is reportedly taking a toll on him.
The source says that Fisher is feeling “exhausted and resentful” of the situation. He is also reportedly missing out on spending time with Underwood and the children.
Underwood’s Efforts to Find a Balance
Underwood is aware of the strain that the extended residency is putting on her marriage and is taking steps to address it. The source says that she is trying to be more understanding of Fisher’s concerns and is making an effort to spend more time with him and the children when she is home.
The couple is also reportedly considering hiring additional help to manage the household and childcare responsibilities.
The Future of the Marriage
Despite the challenges they are facing, the source says that Underwood and Fisher are committed to their marriage and are confident that they will be able to work through this difficult time.
“They are a strong couple who have been through a lot together,” the source says. “They love each other very much and are committed to making their marriage work.”
It is important to note that these are just allegations and the couple has not publicly addressed the situation. However, if the reports are true, it is clear that Underwood and Fisher are facing a difficult challenge in their marriage. It will be interesting to see how they navigate this situation and whether they are able to emerge stronger on the other side.
