Nicole Johnson, Miss California 2010, recently became engaged to Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. The two have dated on and off for a few years.

Michael Phelps shared the exciting news with his followers--both on Twitter and Instagram.

He shared a photo with his now-fiancee Nicole Johnson, rolling in the snow. It was taken by one of his teammates, Allison Schmitt.

Michael Phelps captioned the shot, "She said yes.@nicole.m.johnson. (Photo credit to @arschmitty)."

Nicole Johnson shared their excitement, too, via Twitter.

Michael Phelps is almost finished with a six-month suspension from USA Swimming, for his second arrest for drunken driving. That suspension officially ends on March 6th, and he is expected to return to competition in Arizona some time in April.

Olympian Allison Schmitt shared her own picture of Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson's engagement. This photo shows off the gorgeous engagement ring Phelps gave his bride-to-be.

"CAN NOT BE MORE EXCITED FOR THE SOON TO BE MR & MRS PHELPS #beautifullove #itsreal #truelove #congrats @m_phelps00 @nicole.m.johnson," she captioned the shot.

There are no doubt lots of women disappointed today by learning that Michael Phelps is engaged. And there are probably just as many men who are crushed to learn that the former Miss California, Nicole Johnson, is off the market as well.

No wedding date has yet been announced for the happily engaged couple. It will likely be set to work around swimming competitions.
