E! News confirmed earlier today that Olympian Michael Phelps married his fiancé Nicole Johnson on June 13 in Arizona. According to TMZ, who broke the news, their wedding was officiated by Peter Carlisle, Michael Phelps’ agent and longtime friend.

So during the Olympics, when everyone was talking about their engagement and asking the pair about their wedding plans… they were already married! And they kept fooling everyone when they revealed their plans for a “small and intimate” ceremony.

The couple welcomed a baby boy, Boomer, in May, and became Instagram famous during the summer Olympics. Now that Phelps has retired from swimming, the couple plans to spend as much time with their family as possible.

And now, Nicole’s Instagram post from June 13 makes so much more sense. “Such a memorable night with my lil fambam.” Congrats to the happy couple!
