Los Angeles - Michael Phelps' girlfriend has revealed she was born with male genitalia.

Taylor Lianne Chandler, who started dating the Olympic swimmer in August after they met through the dating app Tinder, announced on her Facebook page that she was an intersex baby and named David Roy Fitch by her parents.

The 41-year-old blonde beauty, who claims to have dated a number of other celebrities, eventually underwent corrective surgery to get rid of her male genitalia.

She also told gossip website RadarOnline.com: "I was born with male genitalia with no testicles, but I also have a uterus and no ovaries."

Taylor claims she fell in love with Michael, 29, who checked into rehab in September after being arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence), but only told him about her past recently and is now worried she will lose him.

Taylor has used social media as a platform to explain what intersex means since coming out, she has also shared her devastation at the reaction of the media towards her situation.
