Here’s the Reason Why Michael Phelps Had to Keep His Wedding a Secret

Michael Phelps dished on his secret wedding and whether more babies are on the way for the couple.

Following the news that the Olympic swimmer had quietly wed Nicole Johnson, Phelps took to Facebook to explain why. “I’ve been married for a while — a couple months,” he told fans during a Facebook Live video on Thursday (Oct. 27, 2016.)

“I had to keep it a secret from y’all. I had to keep it hush-hush from you guys,” he added, cracking a little smile. “But Nicole and I are married, we are officially married and now we are getting the chance to kind of kick it and hang out now.”

So when fans asked why he tied the knot in secret, Phelps said, “Just because.” However, the proud dad did hint at more babies in the near future. “Baby number two may be coming soon,” he teased in the video. “Who knows, though!”
