Michael Phelps Announces He, Nicole Expecting Boy Number Four

It was a big weekend for Michael Phelps and the Phelps family. Not only was he inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, along with his coach Bob Bowman, but he announced his family will grow by one very soon.

Phelps announced he and his wife Nicole Phelps are expecting the couple’s fourth child, and it is once again a boy.

First Boomer was born in May 2016 and Beckett was born in February 2018, followed by Maverick in September 2019.

Michael Phelps captured 28 Olympic medals during his spectacular career, 10 more than the second-most of all time. Of that total, Phelps won 23 gold medals, 14 more than the second-most in history. His career featured 33 medals from the World Championships and 21 medals from the Pan Pacific Championships, along with an incredible 39 world records.

As impressive as his accomplishments in the pool, Phelps has served as a role model to the next generation of athletes to walk the deck, and his public emphasis on the importance of mental health has highlighted the need to take care of oneself and seek support when necessary.

He and Nicole have started the Michael Phelps Foundation and done several other things to support swimmers in a variety of ways.

Now, their family will grow by one more.

Michael Phelps is officially a Hall of Famer and has built a family of four boys  – brothers relay anyone?!
