Michael Phelps And Nicole Johnson Married Secretly

The secret is out — swimming legend Michael Phelps secretly married Nicole Johnson months ago during a June 13 ceremony in Paradise Valley, Arizona. The couple got engaged in February of 2015 and had a son, named Boomer, in May.

Phelps and his wife Nicole were both able to keep the marriage news completely quiet during this past Olympic Games in Rio despite the increasing interest in the couple's wedding plans.


Phelps maintained that he was engaged during the Rio Olympics this summer, telling People in August that he was looking forward to getting married.  “I really can’t wait to get married,” he said at the time. “It will be small destination wedding later this year. It’s the next big milestone I’m looking forward to.”  

The ceremony was officiated by Phelps' agent and friend Peter Carlisle.

On their wedding day, Johnson posted a photo with Phelps and their son Boomer on Instagram captioned: 'Such a memorable night with my lil fambam.'
