Michael Phelps has captured the nation's heart by becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time at the 2012 London games, but it seems he's also captured the heart of a beautiful blonde woman named Megan Rossee. The 27-year-old swimmer has been quietly dating a Los Angeles-based aspiring model and actress since January, and according to friends things are heating up for the pair.
A source close to the couple revealed to RadarOnline that "Michael is completely besotted with Megan and now that he’s retired is even thinking of popping the question."
Michael reportedly met the leggy blonde while she was cocktail waitressing at Blok nightclub in L.A. and they really hit it off. Not many details have came out about their relationship so far, but Michael made their relationship official after stepping onto the red carpet with Megan at a Speedo sponsored event on Monday night.
Megan followed her gold medalist beau to London, where she cheered him on with a big group of friends and sent him loving tweets.
"@MichaelPhelps this probably will get lost in your tweets but since i cant text i miss you and cant wait to spend time with you for real xo."
