The engagement of the couple, who’ve dated on-and-off for a few years, comes as the 29-year-old Phelps is ending a six-month suspension from USA Swimming for his second drunk driving arrest.

Phelps retired from competition in 2012, having won 22 medals across three Olympics to make him the most decorated Olympic athlete ever. But he returned to competition again in 2014.
