Michael Phelps Goes for the Gold with a $2.53 Million Arizona Mansion (Killer Pool, Included)—See Inside!
Michael Phelps can breathe a sigh of relief following the summer games. Not only is he returning home from Rio a 23-time gold medalist, but he's officially announced his retirement—and can retreat home to his very posh pad in Scottsdale, Ariz., to bask in his Olympic glory.
In December 2015, Phelps and fiancée Natalie Johnson, a former Miss California USA, purchased their $2.53 million desert dream home, according to USA Today. There, the couple have raised 3-month-old son, Boomer Phelps, who also attended the Olympic Games (below) and cheered on dad during his races.

Outside, there's a huge outdoor pool area (naturally), where we can bet little Boomer will be trying his hand at swimming in no time.
