First Time Dad Michael Phelps Shares New Photos of Son Boomer

US Olympian Michael Phelps is loving being a dad and often shares sweet photos of his newborn son, Boomer on Instagram.

Michael and wife Nicole Johnson welcomed their first child together one month ago and by the looks of it they are completely smitten by their little bundle of joy.

The swimmer shared a first image which shows Boomer being cradled by his dad while fiancee, winner of Miss California 2010 sleeps next to them. The proud dad captioned the pic with:“Nothing like being home with the family!!!” (Not sure who took the candid pic though).

Boomer and his mom Nicole will be cheering on dad at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, and Michael is can’t wait.

“One of the coolest things about being a father going into Rio is that our firstborn has the chance to see my last race ever,” he said. “I think that’s something that’ll be really special that we’ll be able to share stories with him, you know, from the time he gets old enough to realize, and I’m excited to have a lot of photos and just to share the moments and memories with him growing up as a kid.”

Hard being away from you Boomer!! Trying to do everything to make you proud of daddy!!! #dreamingbig @boonestudios
