Phelps went on Facebook Thursday to explain, kind of, with a live video taken while he was out golfing with former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

"You guys probably already saw the article that was posted," he said.

"I've been married for a while, been married for while, couple months. I had to keep it secret from y'all. I had to keep it hush-hush from you guys. Nicole and I are married. We are officially married," he said.

The pair, who became parents to baby boy Boomer on May 5, got engaged in February 2015.

"Why is it a secret? Just because," he added. "Got to always have something, guys. Baby No. 2 may be coming soon, who knows though."
