Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympic athlete with 22 medals (18 gold), has gotten engaged to beauty queen Nichole Johnson. The best swimmer on the planet announced the news on his Instagram with a photo of the lovebirds playing in the snow and a very large sparkling on her finger with the caption of, “She said yes.” On Johnson’s Instagram she said, “I’m gonna be a Mrs. Phelps.”
The professional swimmer and bride-to-be are both 29-years-old and have had an on-again-off-again relationship since 2007.
On Feb. 6, Phelps said that he planned to return to competition in April following his six-month suspension for a DUI charge. But enough about him, here’s the hottest Instagram photos of his new fiancé, the 2010 Miss California USA.
