Congratulations to Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps and his wife, Nicole Johnson – they welcomed their second child, a baby boy, earlier this week!
Michael and Nicole chose another ‘B’ name for their new addition, naming him Beckett. Of course, Beckett’s older brother is Boomer, who turns 2 in May and is already Instagram famous.
The name Beckett is of English origin, meaning “Dweller by the Brook.”
Michael confirmed the baby news on Instagram, writing: “Magical moments yesterday… Nicole and I would like to introduce Beckett Richard Phelps to the world! We had a healthy baby boy and a healthy mama. I truly do feel like the happiest man in the world. Being able to build our family to now 4 (6 with doggies) is so incredible! #familyof4now.”
Boomer also posted about the exciting news, writing on Instagram: “I am officially a big bro!!! All I wanna do is hold him! I can’t wait til I get to teach him so many cool things about the world!!”
