Does Michael Phelps EVER get out of the pool? Even while reaping the benefits of retirement, he still can’t seem to stay away from the water. Enjoying a day off with his family, the Olympic swimmer shared the most ADORABLE picture of his baby boy!
Like father, like son. Grinning from ear to ear, Michael Phelps, 31, posted the SWEETEST family photo of his fianceé Nicole Johnson and their baby boy Boomer Robert with his fans on Instagram. “There’s nothing like being back home!!” he captioned the picture on Aug. 17, marking his “first day in retirement!!” Still, Michael isn’t wasting any time teaching Boomer how to follow in his footsteps. Dressed in a heart-warming sunhat, Boomer rested in his father’s arms while floating in the pool on a very sunny day.

Even at the young age of 31, the “Flying Fish” truly deserves a break, considering he’s won 28 medals overall and is considered the most decorated Olympian of ALL time. In the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics alone, he won five gold medals and one silver — but the Olympics are only a fraction of his incredible life. Last year, Michael announced he was engaged to former Miss California USA winner, Nicole, whom he met in 2007 at the ESPY’s. Together, they share one son, Boomer, who was born on May 5.
“It’s time for me to start the next chapter of my life,” he confessed to People. “I have a beautiful fiancée, a beautiful baby boy [whom] I want to spend as much time with as I can.” Michael also hinted that a son is just the FIRST step in their growing family, which means he’s probably planning to build an Olympic swim team of his own! Just wait until these kids grow up and start competing. So now that Michael has all this free time, what is he going to do with it (besides raise a family)? Well, he’s always had an interest in politics and charity work, and he’s even considered moving onto TV deals. Wouldn’t it be great to see Michael appear on Dancing With The Stars, or Celebrity Apprentice? Fingers crossed!
HollywoodLifers, isn’t it great to see that Michael is such a family man?
