What do you do after becoming the most accomplished Olympian in history? Date a model.
In truth, Michael Phelps has quietly been dating model Megan Rossee for about five months, but tonight, he made his first official appearance with his flame on the red carpet at an event hosted by Speedo in London.
Rossee is a 25-year-old Los Angeles model, with a website to support that claim.
Phelps is a newly retired 22-time Olympic medalist who, when asked about the thought of marriage yesterday, laughed and deflected the question.
Rossee has not been quite so bashful. Her Instagram account has included many candid shots of Phelps and also a picture of herself pushing a baby stroller with the caption "Maaaaaybe in 5-10 years."
