Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole are expecting baby number three! The former Olympic swimmer shared a sweet announcement on Instagram featuring his two sons, 2-year-old Boomer and 1-year-old Beckett, who are sitting in a toy car with balloons that spell out "baby" in front of them.
"[Number] 3 on the way! Can't wait to see the journey that this takes us on!!!" Michael wrote on his post. Nicole shared the same photo, adding: "Oops we did it again. I get to be a mama x3!!" Boomer and Beckett, who have parent-run Instagram accounts, also commented on the baby news with different variations of the same adorable photo. "I'm not sure what this means but I was just told I'm promoted to Big Brother!!" reads Beckett's account, while Boomer's says: "I asked mom for a new baby for Christmas last year and . . . well my wish finally came true!!! I wonder if I'm gonna have [a] little brother or a little sister?"
Based on the timing of the announcement — and the fact that many expectant parents typically wait until about 12 weeks into a pregnancy to share the news — it's likely that we can expect to "meet" baby Phelps number three some time between September and November. Congratulations to the Phelps family!
