Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson — make that MRS. Phelps, as she’s officially changed her Instagram page to read ― shocked the world when they revealed that the official ceremony we’ve all been waiting for between Boomer’s parents apparently already happened earlier this summer.
Secretly tying the knot in June, Michael spilled the beans to fans last Thursday in a Facebook live post that he and baby momma Nicole had “been married for a couple months. “
“I had to keep it secret from y’all,” he said in the post. “I had to keep it hush hush from you guys,” because, as he says, “Gotta’ always have something, guys.”
While we’re not entirely sure what he meant by that (something for themselves, maybe?), it appears the duo is willing to share the deets of their second ceremony with us, the likes of which reportedly happened in Cabo over the weekend, despite earlier reports of plans to have a big bash on US soil.
“My best friend…I love you!” Michael sweetly captioned this shot of them walking down the aisle hand in hand.
Nicole answered right back with an adorable snap of her own, saying, “Truly the happiest day of my life @m_phelps00.”
Um, can we just take a second to talk about that gorgeous dress? Almost vintage with its wrap lace top but with a thigh-high slit to keep it fresh, Nicole’s frock rendered her absolutely stunning. Michael looks every bit as dapper himself, rocking a light khaki tux with a baby blue tie.
So what’s life like post wedding #2? “We’re married,” Michael shrugs in the below video.
“Now we just have rings that show that we are,” Nicole adds with a laugh.
Cheers to that. Congratulations, you two!!!
Do you think Michael and Nicole were smart to keep their first wedding a secret? Share @BritandCo!
