Michael Phelps and Fiancée Nicole Johnson Are Expecting Their First Child

Looks like this union is going swimmingly.


Michael Phelps might be shore-bound come next year, as he and fiancée Nicole Johnson are expecting their first child.

The olympic swimmer and former Miss California have dated sporadically since 2007, sealing the deal in February with an engagement.

The baby announcement was made via Instagram on Wednesday, where Phelps, 30, divulged the couple had been expecting for eight weeks, sharing that they'd recently discovered the new baby was a boy.

He hashtagged the post "#LifeAboutToChange," expressing his excitement at becoming a father amidst "#MP" miniature swimwear.

Johnson, also 30, shared the same image on her own account, writing that "today marks 12 weeks and 5 days of us having a little one and yesterday we learned we're having a BOY. We couldn't be happier!! #babymp #mpswim"

Just two weeks prior to the news, Phelps shared a throwback of he and Johnson on vacation in Cabo.
