Underwood and the Ottawa Senators hockey star started dating last year, and just one month ago the former “American Idol” was forced to squash rumors that she and the 29-year-old sports star were shacking up.
“I read something recently that a certain someone and I were moving in together,” she wrote on her fan club website. “This is beyond not true...just another example of people making stuff up out of thin air!"
Just a few weeks ago, Underwood also told Pop Tarts that she was pretty much the only one from her high school that wasn’t already married with children.
“I'm 26 now, and I feel like this is the biggest point in someone's life for maturity to happen. Most of the people I went to school with are married and have kids,” she said. “This is just a time for growth, and I feel like I definitely experienced a lot of growth from then to now. I've grown up a lot.”
