The former Miss California, 29, shared a similar photo on her account, showing off her sparkling ring against a winter background.

Both photos of the happy couple were snapped by Phelps’s training partner and fellow Olympian Allison Schmitt, who posted her own shot of the “soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Phelps.”

Phelps and Johnson have been dating on and off since 2007, and remained friends throughout the years. After splitting in late 2011, the couple rekindled their romance in 2014.
