2019 is turning into a huge ‘Baby Boom’ among the world’s celebrities. And we can’t get enough of all the excitement! Now we hear that the most decorated Olympian of all time is going to be a father again - for the third time!
Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps and wife Nicole Johnson Phelps just made the cutest announcement that their family is expanding. They took to Instagram to share the news, and the pics are just precious.
“The retired competitive swimmer — who, with a total of 28 medals (13 of them gold), is the most successful and decorated Olympian of all time — and his wife Nicole Johnson Phelps revealed on Instagram that they are expecting their third child.”
Michael and Nicole are already the parents of two boys, Boomer, two, and Beckett, 13 months. The third child is due some time this year, although no due date has been announced.
Popsugar took a stab at figuring it out, though, but it has not been verified by anyone close to the couple.
“Based on the timing of the announcement — and the fact that many expectant parents typically wait until about 12 weeks into a pregnancy to share the news — it's likely that we can expect to ‘meet’ baby Phelps number three some time between September and November. Congratulations to the Phelps family!”
The Phelps clan seems to be extremely excited about the big event and all four of them posted to their accounts. Yes, Boomer and Beckett also have their own Instagram pages!
All four announcements depict the elder Phelps boys riding in a motorized toy car that bears shiny gold balloons on the front of it, spelling out the good news: ”B-A-B-Y”
First, the happy mama:
“Oops we did it again 🧒🏼👦🏻👶🏻 I get to be a mama x3!!”
Then, firstborn son, Boomer had his say:
“I asked mom for a new baby for Christmas last year and .... well my wish finally came true!!! I wonder if I’m gonna have little brother or a little sister?“
Even little brother (and soon to be ‘big brother’) Beckett weighed in:
“I’m not sure what this means but I was just told I’m promoted to Big Brother!!”
Then, the proud papa adds his two cents, looking to the exciting future as a family of five:
"#3 on the way! Can’t wait to see the journey that this takes us on!!! #luckyman #boyorgirl? #P3"
Apparently, if you believe the hashtag, #boyorgirl? then neither Nicole nor Michael knows the sex of baby Phelps #3.
Either way, we can't wait to meet this new little precious one, and wish the happy couple - and proud big brothers - the best of everything as they await their next bundle of joy!
