Fresh off an Olympic Games that sealed his place in history, Michael Phelps debuted a new girlfriend to go with his shiny medals. The blonde bombshell on his arm? The stunning 25-year-old model Megan Rossee. The L.A. Native has been quietly dating the swimming superstar since they met in January. Recently the relationship has heated up, prompting the couple to go public. So who is this mystery woman on Phelps' arm? We did some digging to find out.
The 5-foot-9 beauty works as a cocktail waitress at Hollywood nightclub Blok while trying to make it big as a model and actress. In her bio, she describes herself and outlines her career goals: "I am super easy-going and pretty much down for any type of project [that doesn't involve nudity]. I love what I do and hope to further my career as a model as well as a performer." You can check out her growing portfolio on her website.
The question on everyone's minds is what the aspiring model's motives are for her relationship with the Olympic athlete. She has been all over Twitter showing support for her sweetheart, and we think her nickname for him is adorable. Her father assures fans that she is not using the swimmer, and we hope that's the truth because they could go the distance. A source reveals that Phelps is falling hard and fast for his gorgeous girlfriend: "Michael is like a puppy dog around Megan - he's completely in love with her."
So how did she win over this notorious lothario? She has all the traits he's looking for, especially a funny side.
Laughs and all this couple is riding high. And after 22 medals, can you blame them?
