Possibly the greatest Olympic swimmer of all time, Michael Phelps, the eighteen time medalist – is engaged! He proposed to his partner, Nicole Johnson, last Saturday on an Instagram post. We never fully understood the reason celebrities feel the urge to share with the world their news but we are glad that they do. The future Mrs Phelps hails from California and has participated in numerous beauty pageants, earning the title of Miss California USA in 2010 and being placed in the top 10 at Miss USA in the same year. She posted some celebratory pics on Instagram. “I’m gonna be a Mrs. @m_phelps00,” reads the caption of one photo featuring the happy couple.
The engagement ring looks like a round brilliant cut solitaire, approx. 2.5 carats and assuming excellent quality, could be in the region of 50,000 euro.
We wish the couple the best together and look forward to seeing their wedding images.
