Michael Phelps’ girlfriend Megan Rossee: The first lady of American swimming

Megan Rossee and Michael Phelps make their red carpet debut in London last night.

It seems history-making swimmer Michael Phelps has won a lot more than medals in his lifetime — he’s also won the heart of tall, blonde, cocktail waitress/model Megan Rossee.

The duo has been spotted celebrating out on the town in London, though a series of photos Rossee tweeted recently seem to confirm that they are in fact an official couple. Rossee also made her red carpet debut on Phelps’ arm last night at the Speedo Athlete Celebration in London.  

On her Model Mayhem profile, the 25-year-old LA-based bombshell describes herself as “super easy going and pretty much down for any type of project (that doesn’t involve nudity).”

In case you’re wondering, she’s 5’10”, 125 lbs. and wears a size 7 shoe.

One photographer commented on her profile, congratulating her recent headline-making appearances with Phelps: “Congrat’s of being the First Lady of American Swimming! According to Yahoo’s ‘Mystery Blonde’. :)”


HollyScoop reports
the couple has been dating since January but things took a more serious turn right before Phelps headed to his third Olympics.

“Michael knew that he had to leave for the Olympics and not wanting to give up on their relationship, he flew Megan out to the trials in Omaha and then to London for The Games,” a source told the site.

Sorry ladies, but as far as we know, Ryan Lochte is still single.
