Michael Phelps To Be A Dad, Pregnant Fiancée Nicole Johnson Expecting Baby Boy — SEE PHOTO!
Michael Phelps is going to be a dad! Fiancée Nicole Johnson is pregnant with their first child. See the full announcement photo below!
The Olympic gold medalist announced the joyous news on Instagram on Wednesday. Along with a photo of him arms wrapped around Johnson’s growing bump, Phelps wrote, “We found out 8weeks ago we were expecting… Today we’re over 12 weeks and it looks like we’re having a boy!!!”
Fittingly, the parents-to-be posed for the picture next to a swimming pool. Phelps included the hashtags, “#babymp #mp #lifeabouttochange #mpswim.” Johnson was even holding up a tiny speedo with the initial “MP” on it, and the snapshot was taken by fellow swimmer David Nolan.
As Gossip Cop reported, Phelps and Johnson became engaged in February. The athlete then, too, took to Instagram to reveal the news, sharing an engagement photos with the caption, “She said yes.” The couple has been on and off since 2007, but going steady since their most recent reunion in November of last year.
Phelps shared his baby news just a week and a half after Sports Illustrated released its “The Rehabilitation Of Michael Phelps” cover story. The magazine documented his attempts at making a personal and professional comeback since his arrest and stint in rehab last year. Fortunately, it seems Phelps is now on the right track, and he has the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio to look forward to, in addition to son. Congrats!
