Michael Phelps Has a Girlfriend Named Megan Rossee

What, you didn’t think the most decorated Olympian in history was single, did you?

Yes, Michael Phelps has someone who can help him carry all that weight he recently put around his neck—model Megan Rossee. The couple has reportedly been dating for months, though Phelps had kept his relationship status mum in the press. But Rossee—a self-described model and actress working in Los Angeles—joined him on the red carpet this week in London at an event thrown by Speedo. Of course, what with her boyfriend’s busy schedule this summer, the 25-year-old hasn’t been doing as much work. She has apparently been hanging out in London since the Olympian flew her out to join him earlier this month.

Where can you find more evidence of the couple’s relationship? Instagram, of course. The model has been tweeting plenty of candid shots of Phelps with his medals and with his shirt off. OK, show us something we haven’t seen.
