As an 18-time gold metalist, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is no stranger to bling and shiny objects. Over the weekend, he added a new prized possession to his life – an engagement ring for his on-again-off-again girlfriend, former Miss California USA 2010, Nicole Johnson. Currently on-again, Phelps and Johnson, both 29, announced their proposal via Instagram.
Johnson, who shared her engagement news with the caption “I’m gonna be a Mrs” posted a photo of her looking lovingly at Phelps as they lay in the Colorado snow.
Phelps posted a similar snowy photo simply writing “She said yes.” Shout out to Phelps’ trainer and fellow Olympic swimmer Allison Schmitt for these adorable engagement photos!
Family and friends joined the couple Sunday morning to celebrate with a brunch and a group selfie at The Boardmoor, a resort in Colorado Springs.
Johnson was excited to show off the new addition to her left hand, proudly displaying her flashy engagement ring in another photo on Schmitt’s profile.
In addition to planning a wedding in the future, Phelps is currently training for the Rio Summer Olympics. Aiming to break some new records, we know that no matter what, he’ll always be first in Johnson’s heart. We’re looking forward to seeing the happy couple poolside in 2016!
