The first photos from Michael Phelps' secret wedding to his long-term love Nicole Johnson have emerged.

Despite marrying four months ago, the couple's wedding celebration didn't occur until Friday, TMZ reports.

The Olympic legend tied the knot in secret on June 13 in Arizona, months before the Rio Olympics where he said he still hadn't set a wedding date.

The newlyweds reportedly celebrated their marriage in Cabo this weekend with a lavish ceremony in the company of family and friends, with both the bride and groom sharing a photo from the day to Instagram.

Truly the happiest day of my life @m_phelps00 thank you @boonestudios for capturing this day

"My best friend... I love you!" wrote the 23 gold medal-holder alongside a photo of the pair walking down the aisle.

"Truly the happiest day of my life," wrote Johnson, who has changed her surname to Phelps since the wedding.

Although we're loving these photos, we hope that a picture of baby Boomber emerges soon. 

Phelps has been dating the former Miss California, who works in marketing for the Michael Phelps Foundation, since 2007 but split in 2011 before reuniting in 2014.

"I said to a couple of my friends if I ever had the chance to get her back, that would be it. She was the one I loved the most," Phelps revealed last year.

"Her and I have been on and off for eight years. It's been a long time. We've been through a lot. But I love her to death. We've been able to grow as a couple through everything we've been through, the positive changes I've made in my life."
