Michael Phelps‘ fiancee Nicole Johnson is opening up in a new interview.
The 31-year-old Olympic gold medalist’s longtime talks about their breakup before they got back together and eventually got engaged.
“There definitely were times, and I think Michael would say the same thing, where I hated him. We were at odds at times,” Nicole told Cosmopolitan.com. “Even when I loathed him, there were still times when I was like, “God, I wish I was with him.”
As for the wedding, Nicole said, “I took on everything, obviously, because he had to focus on going to the games. And now I’m like, “What do you think about this and what do you think about that?” I know Michael well enough to know he doesn’t need to partake in the tiny, minuscule decisions. But I also know him well enough to know that he does want to be involved in what flavor our cake is going to be and what flowers he thinks are ugly and what flowers he thinks are really pretty. I show him pictures and I ask what he thinks and he’ll either brush it off, which means he doesn’t really care, or he’ll give me his opinion.”
