Michael Phelps Reveals Why He Had A Secret Wedding

November 22, 2016
Fish/swimmer Michael Phelps revealed why he secretly got married. Hold on ladies, it's a romantic tale of ... paperwork.

Phelps tells MSN, "We wanted to try to make it as smooth as we could for them (baby Boomer and Nicole) to travel to Rio."

So he and Nicole had a small, private ceremony in their backyard to make things official; she'd become a Phelps prior to the 2016 Olympics.

"It was small," Phelps said. "It was our closest friends and family there. It was perfect."

And yes, as of today he still says he's retired.
