A big happy birthday is in order for little Boomer Phelps! Boomer celebrates his first birthday today, and parents Michael and Nicole Phelps posted the cutest birthday messages for the little guy.

Taking to Instagram, Michael posted a throwback pic from the day Boomer as born. In the photo, Michael looks lovingly at his son — he was undeniably one proud papa. And clearly, nothing has changed!


Mama Nicole had her own message for the birthday boy, sharing a more recent snapshot of the little tyke. In it, she wrote: “Turning [one] tomorrow and some of his milestones include… [Getting] on and off his cars, in and out of his wagon, climbing on everything but also turning around to get down, drinking from his own cup, making a drum out of anything, clapping when he hears an audience clap and so much more…”

Just look at Boomer. At one year old, the little dude is already such a looker!

The 23-time Olympic gold medalist and his wife secretly wed in June of last year, just after the birth of their son. The two remained hush-hush as to why they kept their nuptials out of the public eye, but we can totally understand. With last year’s Olympics and the birth of their son, they clearly had a lot going on, so it must’ve been a relief to keep a few things private!

They’ve since celebrated a more public beachside wedding in Cabo San Lucas, and as you can imagine, it was a truly beautiful occasion.

But back to Boomer… happy birthday, little guy. We hope it’s epic!
