Michael Phelps Is a Dad! Welcome to the World, Boomer Robert
'Healthy and happy!!! Best feeling I have ever felt in my life!!!' the first-time father wrote.
Congratulations are in order for olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and fiancée Nicole Johnson. The two brought baby boy Boomer Robert Phelps into the world on Thursday, announcing his birth via Instagram on Saturday:
"Welcome Boomer Robert Phelps into the world!!! Born 5-5-2016 at 7:21 pm !!! Healthy and happy!!! Best feeling I have ever felt in my life!!! @nicole.m.johnson and Boomer both healthy!!!" Phelps wrote, along with a sweet picture of Boomer resting in his arms.
Just a day before the announcement, Johnson posted an incredibly apropos pregnancy photo. Only time will tell if little Boomer has swimming legs like his dad, but he's sure being pushed in the right direction.
The couple announced the pregnancy in November, also via Instagram. Johnson, a former Miss California, and Phelps have dated sporadically since 2007, sealing the deal in February 2015 with an engagement.
Best wishes to the growing family. We're thinking the Babymoon will be someplace near the water, yeah?
