Carrie Underwood and Ottawa Senator hockey player Mike Fisher are engaged, her rep tells UsMagazine.com.

"I'm happy to confirm that Carrie Underwood is engaged to Mike Fisher, and the couple couldn't be happier," the rep tells Us. "No wedding date has been set at this time."

According to the Ottawa Sun, he also confirmed the news at a press conference Monday. He said he popped the question Sunday, but declined to offer any other details.

"It's true," he said. "We're both obviously excited and very happy."

His teammate Chris Neil said Fisher, 29, called him shortly after he proposed. "I think it's great," Neil told reporters. "It's a long time coming. There's going to be a lot of broken hearts in Ottawa with all those girls who are in love with Mikey."

Underwood, 26, and Fisher have mostly been hush-hush about their relationship since they began dating last year.

But lately, they've been opening up.

"Thank you #12," she wrote, referring to his jersey number. "You are the most amazing addition to my life! You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day... xoxo, Carrie."
