Phelps proposed to Johnson in February 2015, no doubt Johnson’s “accredited jewelry professional” status through the Gemological Institute of America helped them find the perfect ring, and the young couple celebrated the birth of their first child on May 5, 2016. Johnson has been tweeting her support for her husband since the olympic trials this year, and has kept the excitement going on her feed.
