Michael Phelps announces his engagement. Read the sweet mesage.

Oh, (Olympic) baby.

Olympic champion Michael Phelps and his fiancée Nicole Johnson are expecting. The couple, who have been engaged since February, made the happy announcement via Instagram on Wednesday (Nov. 18):

“We found out 8 weeks ago we were expecting,” the 30-year-old swimmer wrote in the caption, adding that his wife-to-be is having a boy.

“We couldn’t be happier!” echoed Johnson, a former beauty queen who was named Miss California in 2010.

The baby news comes off the heels of Phelps’ two DUI arrests, a rehab stint and a six-month suspension from competitive swimming. No word on whether or not the most decorated Olympian of all time will be competing for a spot in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio, which will begin in August.
