Michael Phelps and Nicole Michele Johnson married back in June in Paradise Valley, Arizona, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Phelps' friend and agent, Peter Carlisle, conducted the ceremony.
Michael Phelps sure knows how to make a splash, even outside the water. Pictured: Phelps at an Omega promotional event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 15, 2016.
"You guys probably already saw the article that was posted", Phelps said while driving a golf cart with Lewis in the passenger seat. It turns out the couple were married June 13, less than two months before the Olympic swimming legend set out for the Rio Games, where he added six more medals to his collection. For a celeb who wants a small, intimate, private ceremony, the pressure of being in the spotlight all the time must get annoying.
Michael Phelps is a married man. The magazine has confirmed the news as they got hold of a copy of their record of marriage. In the following months since, the couple kept up the rouse that they were still just engaged, surprising us with their newlywed reveal just this week.
Phelps and Johnson met in 2007. An Instagram post from Johnson dated June 13 shows the happy couple and their son with the caption, "Such a memorable night with my lil fambam".
"I've been married for a while".
Phelps and Johnson, who is also 31, announced their engagement in February 2015.
In the photo was herself with Phelps and their son, Boomer, now 5 months. Just last week, Michael straight-up denied that they were already married, and neither has been shy about discussing wedding planning. "Baby number two may be coming soon", said Phelps.
Congratulations are in order for the couple, should the rumors be proven true.
