Phelps secretly took marriage plunge

 

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. — Michael Phelps took the plunge in June, secretly marrying his longtime girlfriend two months before the Olympic great completed his last gold-medal haul.

The 31-year-old swimmer wedded Nicole Johnson on June 13. That’s a little more than a month after the former Miss California USA gave birth to their son, Boomer.

Neither of them said anything about the wedding.

Phelps won five gold medals at the Rio de Janeiro Games. He is the most decorated Olympian with 28 medals.
