The couple met in 2007 at the ESPY awards in Los Angeles, when Johnson had won the Miss California U.S.A. Pageant. They’ve had an on-gain, off-again relationship since then. They temporarily broke up in 2012 but rekindled their romance and were engaged in February 2015.

The couple has not publicly acknowledged their marriage, with Phelps saying during the Rio Olympics this summer that he was still just engaged. In August, he told People that he was looking forward to getting married, “She’s really good for me. I really can’t wait to get married. It will be a small destination wedding later this year.” He also said in that interview that he retired from competitive swimming, and intends to contribute to the sport in other ways. He’s more focused on raising his son, and working further on the Michael Phelps Foundation, which allows children to live healthier and more active lifestyles by swimming.

Johnson also had an interview in August where she reiterated they intend to have a private ceremony, “We have a date. It’ll be small and intimate for the wedding, and then we’re throwing a massive bash for everyone in the States. We’re kind of getting things rolling. I’ve been planning as we’ve been leading up to this. I think I have the wedding in order and now it’s on to the party for the fun!”

Phelps’ fans have taken to Twitter to express their surprise at the sudden news. Everyone is happy but still reeling from the shock.

If the couple is, indeed, married, then we offer our belated congratulations!
