Big, Olympian-sized news, folks: the Phelps family is having another baby!

Michael and Nicole Phelps both took to social media on August 29th to announce that the newest addition to their growing family is on the way. And while the radiant couple is clearly over the moon about the news, it seems that their 15-month-old son, Boomer, may be the most stoked of all.

“So excited to see what mama is having!! Do I get to have a brother or a sister?!?” the little tot ‘wrote’ on his Instagram account, alongside a pic of the little guy seriously freaking out over the positive pregnancy test.

Just look at those cheery little cheeks!

Both Mr. and Mrs. Phelps posted identical photos to their Insta accounts, showing an expectant Nicole cradling a still very stoked-looking Boomer, who in turn is waving mama’s positive test.

“Number 2 on the way!!!! So excited!! Wonder if it’s a boy or a girl??,” the 28-time Olympic gold medalist captioned the sweet pic.

Nicole followed up with: “Lil mans going to be a Big Brother!!!”

Michael and Nicole welcomed little Boomer back in May 2016, shortly before tying the knot in a secret ceremony the following month. Since becoming parents, the Phelps’ have shared no shortage of ooh and ahh worthy snapshots of their precious little one.

The littlest Phelps even made the trek to Rio de Janiero to cheer on his champion papa at the 2016 Olympics, making waves of his own as the cutest baby there.


The newest Phelps will likely join the family sometime in the spring of 2018. And in the meantime, we’re expecting no shortage of adorable, big-brother-to-be snapshots of Boomer along the way!
