Gold medals are cool, but being a dad is cooler to Michael Phelps.
The 23-time Olympic medalist and wife Nicole Phelps recently welcomed their second child, a son, Beckett Richard into the world. Beckett made his way into the world as Shaun White won America’s 100th gold medal during Winter Olympic events.
On Instagram, Michael said, “Magical moments yesterday… Nicole and I would like to introduce Beckett Richard Phelps to the world! We had a healthy baby boy and a healthy mama. I truly do feel like the happiest man in the world. Being able to build our family to now 4 (6 with doggies) is so incredible!”
Nicole followed her husband’s post up with, “Our family grew by 1 yesterday 💗 meet Beckett Richard Phelps. I’m surrounded by boys and I couldn’t be happier 💙💙💙”
And, of course, big brother Boomer, who has almost a million Instagram followers share a photo too, saying, “I am officially a big bro!!! All I wanna do is hold him! I can’t wait til I get to teach him so many cool things about the world!!”
