Before marriage

Michael and Nicole were dating years before marriage. The couple met in 2007, and soon after they met, they started seeing each other and eventually started dating.

The proposal

In February of 2015, Michael finally popped the question to Nicole

He went on one knee and asked Nicole to marry him with a diamond ring, and she obviously said yes. He proposed with a big diamond ring which is really pretty.

Mental health

As happy and easy Michael's life looks in pictures and in front of the cameras, it was not the same in his mind in the past. 

He was at the peak of his career. But he later admitted that he suffered from both ADHD and depression. 

He even told once that the situation got so worse that after the Olympics of 2012, he even attempted suicide. Thankfully nothing happened to him.

Michael flourished his desire to Race a shark without a cage

As we know, Michael is a great swimmer. Michael, in one of the interviews, shared that he likes sharks. Michael elaborated that he has had an infatuation with sharks his whole life. 

Michael added that he turns into a nerd when he talks about sharks. He revealed that he knows a ton about them and for him, he always wanted to dive with a white and always wanted to be in the cage. 

Let’s say, ”Dive with the white.” Michael says that he had told his wife that he wanted to do it without a cage, to which she replied, saying that we have a family, we have a baby. 

He also shares that he had a nose of a great white about so close to his face, Michael says. Michael pointed it out as an awesome experience. 

When asked about the shark’s size, he mentioned that she was about eight feet. 

He further said that white sharks could swim up to 25 miles an hour, whereas Michael defines he can swim six miles an hour. 

Michael then explains the picture of him carrying a monofin. He explains that it was designed so that he could swim like a shark. 

Michael recalls having 15 sharks around him and nurse sharks lying on his leg. He symbolizes that experience as crazy and cool. 

Further, the clip of Michael Phelps's cage diving with sharks was also shown. 

A flashback into Michael’s early life and family

Michael’s real name is Michael Fred Phelps. Originally he belonged to Baltimore, Maryland. He is one of three kids. He was raised in the neighborhood of Rodgers Forge

Michael’s dad Michael Fred Phelps served as an all-around athlete and was a state trooper, whereas his mom Debbie Phelps served as a middle-school principal. 

Sadly, his mom and dad are already divorced. After which, he and his sisters stayed back with their mother, with whom Michael has a close relationship. 

Young Michael started swimming while his two siblings, Whitney and Hilary, got involved with a local swim team. 

Michael doesn’t want to lose

Michael confronted how he didn’t want to lose to the other people. After losing the game in the years, he set that motivation that catapult him into 2008

He shared that they had all the tools they needed at that period. That led them to compete at that level in every single race. 

With his dedication and practice for years, Michael knew each second and where he had to attend every single day. 

Other than that, he also shared that he ate eight to ten thousand calories each day because at the time of swimming Michael fluctuated between 5 to 10 pounds in a week. 

So, if they try to give their best, they all want to be at that race weight all time. Michael added that he used to force himself to eat to meet that target. 

However, as of the current scenario, he doesn’t like to eat and can’t stand to eat. But Michael clarifies that he eats what he needs to. 

When asked what does he look like when consuming that many calories in a day? Michael instantly replies, Whatever. 

He explained that one could not eat all that delicious foods and consume many calories. 

So, Michael revealed mixing that pint of ice cream or sometimes cookies or milkshakes. 

The breakfast for Michael would be two breakfast sandwiches, a bowl of grits, an omelet, or even a short stack of chocolate chip pancakes, and after he takes a nap. 

After waking up, he then ate a bagel and a power bar, and some fruit. Michael says that other people would blow up, but Michael had to in order to maintain that weight. 

As of now, when Michael thinks about the reason he doesn’t like to eat is that there are always some people telling him that he is not eating enough at all. 

And advising him to put some food into his system. He felt like a machine. 

Michael made up his mind he would eat what he wanted to eat and when he wanted to eat. 

When asked how Michael feels about having a long relationship with the coach? 

Michael replies by saying he is a dad, as he explains he didn’t have a dad growing up, so for him especially having somebody for a long time. 

He said that he had learned a lot from his coach, and still, there is much to learn from him.
