Michael Phelps has become a regular on Facebook Live Q&A taking time to answer questions whenever he has time to get on.

But before Phelps could hop on to talk to fans Bob Bowman decided to give everyone a little taste of Phelps’ morning practice, noting that it was a relaxed morning for everyone.

Once Bowman handed over the camera, Phelps had a chance to answer questions about his training, baby Boomer, and talk about movies with Allison Schmitt. Chase Kalisz and Becca Mann also made cameos while relaxing in the hot tub.

While talking about baby Boomer Phelps noted that leaving Boomer and fiance Nicole Johnson at home was one of the hardest things he has ever done, but he gets lots of pictures of Boomer each day and FaceTimes Nicole every day. The new dad commented that he is already looking forward to teaching Boomer how to swim.

Phelps asked the fans to comment whether or not they’d like Bowman to take over more often and provide more clips of their practices while at the Olympic Training Center. Be sure to keep an eye out for Phelps’ next Facebook Live Q&A.
