Starstruck by a Star Trek: The Next Generation hottie! Carrie Underwood recently revealed to Us Weekly that Sir Patrick Stewart is, and “always will” be her celebrity crush — and the actor caught wind of her affections.

In the new issue of Us Weekly, Underwood, 32, told Us that she has a “massive crush” on Stewart, 75.

“Always have, always will,” she added as part of Us’ 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me series.

On Wednesday, Oct. 28, Stewart shared a snapshot of the magazine page with a funny quip right back at the “Smoke Break” singer.

“@carrieunderwood’s words excite me more than the solid results of my recent bone density scan,” the Blunt Talk star captioned the shot on Twitter.

Underwood noticed the post and was understandably overwhelmed by Stewart’s response.

“FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW!!! HE KNOWS I’M ALIVE!!!!!!!” Underwood wrote, retweeting Stewart’s post. “Play it cool, Carrie… play it cool…”

The former American Idol champ, who tied the knot with husband Mike Fisher in July 2010, had a hard time keeping calm recently — for a different reason! — when she sat down to chat with Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday, Oct. 27.

“He’s the sweetest and smiliest baby, I think, ever,” the country superstar said of the couple’s first child together, baby boy Isaiah. “So, that’s a blessing when you’re waking up at three o’clock in the morning. When he’s smiling at you, that makes it not so bad. He rarely cries.”

Underwood and hockey player Fisher welcomed Isaiah in February.
