Lassoing Baby P: Michael Phelps and Fiancée Celebrate with Cowboy-Themed Shower
The Olympic champion and his bride-to-be Nicole Johnson celebrated their son’s impending arrival with a cowboy-themed baby shower over the weekend at the Mediterraneo Restaurant in Westlake Village, California, dressing in theme with the guests at the soiree.
“Great times!!! Thanks for coming guys,” Phelps, 30, wrote on Instagram of a group photo with the denim and cowboy hat-clad male partygoers. “#babyp #babyshower #cowboys #firsttimewearingcowboyboots #thanksgeorgestrait.”

Johnson, who wore white with her leather boots, also shared a photo from the celebrations, thanking her friends for coming and getting excited for motherhood.
“As we start our family we’re surrounded by so many incredible people from the east and west coasts,” Johnson wrote.

The couple announced they were expecting last November, and Johnson has two months left to go in her pregnancy.
Party attendees also shared photos of the happy couple on Instagram, showing off Johnson’s growing bump.
Phelps and Johnson have been dating on and off since 2007, and have long remained friends. After splitting in late 2011, the couple reconciled in 2014 and got engaged last year.
