Michael Phelps took the plunge in June, se­cretly mar­ry­ing his long­time girl­friend two months be­fore the Olympic great com­pleted his last goldmedal haul.

The Ari­zona Repub­lic re­ports the 31-year-old swimmer wed­ded Nicole John­son on June 13. That’s a lit­tle more than a month after the for­mer Miss Cal­i­for­nia USA gave birth to their son, Boomer.

The news­pa­per has posted a copy of a mar­riage li­cense that shows Phelps and John­son were mar­ried in Par­adise Val­ley, Ari­zona. Nei­ther Phelps nor John­son said any­thing about the wed­ding. John­son posted a pic­ture of her with Phelps and Boomer on In­sta­gram on the day of the cer­e­mony with the cap­tion, “Such a mem­o­rable night with my lil fam­bam.”

Phelps won five gold medals at the Rio de Janeiro Games, his last com­ing Aug. 13 to in­crease his over­all gold to­tal to 23. He is the most dec­o­rated Olympian with 28 medals.
