Michael Phelps Carrie Underwood Dating: Carrie Underwood Michael Phelps Planning “Quiet First Date”

Fourteen Olympic medals has superhuman swimmer Michael Phelps looking very good to country singing star Carrie Underwood.

Michael was over the moon after hearing a rumor that the one-time American Idol thinks he is “cute.” According to celebrity tattles on-site at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, the twentysomethings are frequently texting each other and have already begun planning a “quiet first date” near Carrie’s home in Nashville, Tennessee.

An excited Michael is hoping there won’t be too much eating involved on this outing. The 23-year-old athlete told Carrie, “I’m not so sure you’d want to see me eat! It might not make a great first impression.”

“Carrie needs someone who is going to stick by her,” a skeptical pal of Carrie’s revealed to the National Enquirer. “She was devastated when her relationship with Tony Romo broke. The last thing she needs is a relationship with another high-profile celebrity who’s going to end up loving and leaving her.”
