Now that Nashville Predators forward Mike Fisher doesn’t have the playoffs to go worrying about, he’s got his mind on other things. Things like married life with country music superstar Carrie Underwood.

The celebrity couple are set to be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and when it comes to marriage that eventually means kids and as Today Entertainment shares, Fisher is gunning for a really big family.

In a joint interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” Underwood, 29, says that while Fisher, 31, grew up with “three siblings, I think two is a good number to have,” the country crooner tells host Oprah Winfrey, 58. “We’ll see. We’ll cross that bridge. I don’t want too many.”

Fisher insists he’d be happy with “two or three” kids, but Underwood joked that usually, “He’s like, ‘I want seven!'”

Seven kids, sure, why not? That’s enough to make up a whole line of hockey players plus a goalie and a substitute. That’s totally what Fisher is thinking about there, right? Here’s to hoping Carrie is all right with naming all of them Shea or Barry. I’m guessing Alexander and Andrei won’t be too popular for boys names when the time comes.

    I don’t think there are any red blooded men who wouldn’t want to try to have seven kids with Ms. Underwood. Good luck Mike.

    She won’t be very tight after 7.

    If I had a kid for every time I procreated with my hand thinking of Carrie Underwood, my name would be Antonio Cromartie.

      What’s up with the picture with Jeff Foxworthy and Michael W Smith?

      Isn’t Cromartie at 10-8-7 now? 10 kids, 8 baby momma’s and 7 different states?

    Well, at least they can afford 7 kids.
