Michael Phelps is out of the dating pool.

The Olympic champion swimmer anounced his engagement to girlfriend Nicole M. Johnson early Sunday morning. 

"She said yes," Phelps posted on Instagram, next to a photo of the couple cavorting in the snow. 

"I'm going to be a Mrs.," Johnson posted on the site.

Johnson, who was Miss California in 2010, and Phelps dated for about three years before breaking up in 2012. 

They appear to have started spending time together again last summer, at least, according to Johnson's Instagram account, which shows the couple canoodling over the summer and fall. 

The swimmer also posted a photo of Johnson joining his family's Thanksgiving celebration. 

Phelps' former Olympic teammate Allison Schmitt snapped the photo of the happy couple in the snow, as well as another photo she posted to her own Instagram account, showing a beaming Johnson flashing a mammoth ring.
