Olympian swimmer, Michael Phelps, took to his Instagram account to announce that his fiancé, Nicole Johnson, is pregnant!
He captioned the photo, “We found out 8 weeks ago we were expecting … Today we’re over 12 weeks and it looks like we’re having a boy!!! #babymp #mp #lifeabouttochange”
Johnson couldn’t contain her excitement either, posting the same photo on her Instagram, with the caption, “Today marks 12 weeks and 5 days of us having a little one and yesterday we learned we’re having a BOY! We couldn’t be happier!!”
The most decorated Olympian in the world and Johnson have been dating on-and-off since 2007, but Phelps finally put a ring on it back in February, posting an adorable photo of the two of them on Instagram with the caption, “She said yes.”
After a DUI arrest in 2014, and checking in to rehab for drinking-related problems, Phelps is excited for what his future holds, and vows to remain sober in preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
“Before I even went to court, I said to myself that I’m not going to drink until after Rio, if I ever drink again,” he told reporters during the U.S. championships in San Antonio in August. “That was a decision I made for myself. I’m being honest with myself. Going into 2008 and 2012, I didn’t do that. I didn’t say I was going to take a year off from drinking and not have a drink.”
The 30-year-old athlete says, “If I’m going to come back, I need to do this the right way. I’ve got to put my body in the best physical shape I can possibly get it in.”
Sounds like Phelps is already in shape to be a first-time dad. Congratulations to the happy couple!
