Recently, Phelps was in news for DUI and rehab time he spent in October 2014. Phelps apologized for his behavior on Twitter. He announced on social media that he has received great support from people close to him and is hoping for a brighter 2015. The 22-time Olympic medalist faced suspension from the USA Swimming team after being charged with DUI in Maryland.

Phelps’ sister Hilary Phelps congratulated them on her Facebook page, "CONGRATULATIONS to these two lovebirds on their engagement! Couldn't be happier for my brother and thrilled to gain a sister, who I adore and love already!"

In 2010, Nicole Johnson grabbed the Miss California USA title. Nicole Johnson started dating Michael Phelps in 2007. During the 2008 Olympics, Phelps had the best performance of his career. The couple had an on-again-off-again relationship over the last few years as they underwent several breakups.

Phelps and Johnson have spent time together with family during holidays. We wish the best for the couple in future.
