"There definitely were times, and I think Michael would say the same thing, where I hated him," Johnson said. "We were at odds at times. Even when I loathed him, there were still times when I was like, 'God, I wish I was with him.'"
The new mom gave up her dream job as a Formula One sports reporter to start a life and family with Phelps. She mentioned that they both needed the breaks they took during their eight year relationship in order to mature as individuals. "Michael and I both know that had we tried to have a child and get married in the previous time we were together, it probably would not have ended pretty," she told Cosmo. "We both had a lot of growing up to do. We both had a lot of learning about ourselves to do."
"Right now my main priority is being a wife to Michael and Boomer's mom," she said.
As for their adorable son Boomer, the couple could not be happier to show off his cuteness on Boomer's personal Instagram account. "Michael runs it — he asked me if I wanted the password to post pictures and I told him no because I love watching him do it," Johnson revealed. "I send the pictures and Michael does the posting."
