At the time of Underwood's truancy, there were similar rumors surrounding her romance with Fisher, as sources claimed the two were struggling with the performer's tour schedule and the patriarch's retirement.

"She used to be paranoid about him when he was playing ice hockey and traveling around with the team with all those groupies hanging around," an insider said. "Now he's paranoid about her being so many miles away."

"Carrie doesn’t know what she’d do without the support from her husband. She feels so blessed to have him by her side," the pal added.
