Michael Phelps Steals Olympics Spotlight Not by Competing, But by Welcoming Baby Boy #2
The Olympic swimmer and his wife Nicole announced the birth of their second child, Beckett. See the adorable family photos.
While Michael Phelps is officially retired and his sport is in the summer Olympics, not the winter Olympics, he still made headlines during the Winter Games with the birth of his second child: son Beckett.
The 23-time gold medal winner shared a photo on Instagram of newborn son Beckett Richard Phelps, wife Nicole, and Boomer. Phelps wrote, “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 feellike the happiest man in the world. Being able to build our family to now 4 (6 with doggies) is so incredible #familyof4now.”
We can all agree that while Michael Phelps wowed at the 2016 Olympics, his son Boomer really stole the show, cheering for his dad in the stands with mom Nicole. Well now, Boomer has to share the spotlight with his newborn brother—and from the photos shared by his mom and dad, he looks happy to do it. In fact, Boomer even “posted” a photo on his on Instagram account, saying, “I’m 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!! #bigbro.”
Congrats to the Phelps family—and can we expect Boomer and Beckett to take the Olympics stage in 2032 or 2036 Olympics?
