Michael Phelps and Megan Rossee took their relationship public on Monday, when the rumored couple showed up together to the Speedo Athlete Celebration in London.
Rossee, a 25-year-old model from Los Angeles, looked Gold medal-worthy, for lack of a better pun, as she posed for photos in a hip-hugging dress. Phelps, meanwhile, kept it casual in a suit as he put his arm around Rossee.
Since when has Phelps had a woman on his arm?
First hints of a romance between Phelps and Rossee, who have reportedly been dating since January, surfaced on Twitter, when Rossee tweeted a number of lovey-dovey messages to Phelps as he prepared to take the 2012 London Olympics by storm.
“This probably will get lost in your tweets but since i cant text i miss you and cant wait to spend time with you for real xo,” she tweeted on July 28.
“Yes, it’s true,” said Wayne Rossee from his home in Lakewood, Calif., on Monday. “I haven’t met him yet. I will soon.”
Phelps is coming off of a record-setting run at the Olympics, during which he brought his overall medal count to 22, breaking a previous record set by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina. See highlights from his stunning performance in the video, below.
