Carrie Underwood ‘freaking out’ over Patrick Stewart

Carrie Underwood did her best to “play it cool” after Patrick Stewart reached out to her online.

Country singer Carrie Underwood is completely “freaking out” at the fact her celebrity crush Patrick Stewart knows she’s alive.

The 32-year-old Grammy Award-winner revealed a lot of secrets during her recent interview with Us Weekly magazine, telling the publication: “I have a massive crush on Patrick Stewart. Always have, always will.”

The 75-year-old actor caught wind of the discussion and he was deeply flattered by Carrie’s comments, expressing via his Twitter account on Wednesday 28 October (15): “.@carrieunderwood's words excite me more than the solid results of my recent bone density scan.”

She responded to her longtime crush by retweeting his message and writing in the caption: “FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW!!! HE KNOWS I'M ALIVE!!!!!!!! Play it cool, it cool…”

Although Carrie experienced a red-faced internet moment with Patrick this week (starts26Oct15), the star is in a happy marriage with real life spouse Mike Fisher. The pair married in July 2010 and they currently share eight-month-old son Isaiah together.

Carrie previously revealed Mike pacifies her whenever she is anxious about something.

"If I'm nervous, he'll be like, 'C'mon, you have nothing to be nervous about. Just go do what you do and take a deep breath and say a little prayer and you're good to go’,” she explained to People magazine. “Just being able to get a little kiss and go about my way, it definitely has a calming effect.”

In 2016 Carrie is starting her The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round to promote her latest album, Storyteller, and will be kicking things off in Florida before finishing in Canada. Baby Isaiah will be joining her for the journey, so she has ensured everything is safe for the tot.

"Yeah he'll come on the road, we kind of got our bus outfitted for a baby," she smiled to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. "There's a crib that's in the back and it's built in so it's sturdy, it's not gonna be like, flying all over the bus.”
