Michael Phelps And Nicole Johnson Welcome Baby Boy – See First Photo!
Michael Phelps is officially a dad! The swimmer’s fiancée, Nicole Johnson, gave birth on Thursday. Check out the first photo below!
Phelps announced the joyous news via Instagram on Saturday afternoon. “Welcome Boomer Robert Phelps into the world!!! Born 5-5-2016 at 7:21 pm,” he wrote. “Healthy and happy!!! Best feeling I have ever felt in my life!!! @nicole.m.johnson and Boomer both healthy!!! #boomerphelps.”
Accompanying the message was a photo showing Johnson in a bed while Phelps stands shirtless next to her as he cradles their newborn son for skin-to-skin contact. Naturally, the post has become inundated with congratulatory comments. The announcement of baby Boomer’s arrival comes just hours after Johnson shared a picture of herself and her big belly under water as part of a pregnancy shoot she did last week.
As Gossip Cop reported, Phelps and Johnson revealed they were expecting last November. The Olympic gold medalist wrote on Instagram at the time, “We found out 8weeks ago we were expecting… Today we’re over 12 weeks and it looks like we’re having a boy!!!” In the photo with it, the two were standing next to a pool as Johnson held up a tiny speedo.
The couple became engaged in February of last year. It’s unclear when their wedding will be, but now they know the perfect little boy to be the ring bearer. See the first photo of Boomer below!
