Following word that Phelps is dating the aspiring model, her father confirmed the relationship exclusively to Celebuzz.
“Yes, it’s true,” said Wayne Rossee from his home in Lakewood, Calif. “I haven’t met him yet. I will soon.”
Then, in the understatement of the year, Rossee joked: “He’s been kind of busy.”
What plans do Michael and Megan have for the future?
Rossee said the pair, who have been dating since January, want to spend some quality time together post-Olympics. Megan — a Los Angeles native — accompanied Phelps to both the Omaha trials and the London games.
“They plan on traveling around a bit before they come home,” he said.
In the tweets, it’s apparent that Megan has even picked out nicknames for her new beau.

Megan, meanwhile, isn’t just concentrating on her new man: she’s also focusing on her career.
“I am super easy going,” she writes on her Model Mayhem profile. “I’m pretty much down for any type of project (that doesn’t involve nudity). I love what I do and hope to further my carer as a model as well as a performer.”
