Michael Phelps Secretly Married Nicole Johnson Before The Rio Olympics
No “angry Michael Phelps” faces for this news.
TMZ first broke the news after obtaining the couple’s marriage license. The Paradise Valley, Arizona, ceremony was officiated by Phelps’ agent, Peter Carlisle.
Several keen observers have noted that the couple may have dropped a hint on their actual wedding day. 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.”
Earlier this week, Phelps flatly denied that the covert wedding took place during a Facebook Live appearance, telling fans, “I’m not married yet.”
“I am not telling you the date of the wedding,” he said. “That’s a super secret. You guys will know soon, though.”
It appears that we now know.
The couple’s son, Boomer — who is pretty cool — was born on May 5.
