Michael Phelps and his wife welcomed their son back in early 2016 and married later that year – twice!

They tied the knot in June and then once more in October during a bigger event in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Michael Phelps has revealed previously that his spouse was excited to grow their family together. “Nicole has recently brought up that she would like a girl!”  he said to PEOPLE.

“We definitely want more kids, it just depends on when. I’m sure I’m getting pressure.”

Now retired, the Olympic-gold-medallist holder has more time to concentrate on fatherhood and raising the perfect family.

He told PEOPLE that he has embraced every moment of seeing Boomer learn and grow, gushing: “I think that is the coolest thing, watching him grow, and watching him figure out new things.”

We congratulate the happy couple and wish them all the best during this exciting time.
