Michael Phelps and fiancee Nicole Johnson had a baby boy Thursday, the Olympic swimmer announced this afternoon on Twitter:
"Welcome Boomer Robert Phelps into the world!!! Born 5-5-2016 at 7:21 pm !!! Healthy and happy!!!...
Phelps also posted a photo on Instagram of him holding the baby with Johnson in the background.
Scheduled to swim in a meet next weekend, Phelps pulled out earlier this week because of the impending birth. He is scheduled to swim in one more event before the Olympic trials begin at the end of June.
