Michael Phelps and Fiancee Nicole Johnson Are Expecting Their First Child- What Is The Sex?
Olympic medalist Michael Phelps is going to be a father. He and fiancée Nicole Johnson have announced that they are expecting their first child together. The couple became engaged earlier this year and made the baby announcement via Instagram and even included the sex of their new baby: “We found out 8 weeks ago we were expecting … Today we’re over 12 weeks and it looks like we’re having a boy!!!” In the picture that accompanies the announcement, Phelps, 30, is seen holding Johnson’s belly as she holds tiny swim trunks with Michael’s initials on them. Johnson, also 30, shared the news on her profile saying: “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 couple started their courtship in 2007 but then they became on and off lovers but mostly remained really close friends. They got back together in 2011 then broke up and by 2014, they were back on. Just one year later, the duo announced that they were engaged and now they are expanding their love via Baby Phelps.
According to E!, Phelps had this to say about his life: “I feel like I am okay and I am happy with who I am. I feel like I’ve learned so much about myself, who I truly am. I can honestly say there aren’t many people who have seen who I really am.” This comes after two DUI arrests, rehab and a suspension from competing that lasted half a year. The swimmer may or may not compete in the 2016 Olympics, which will be held in Rio and it looks like his little family will be there to support him. No word on when Phelps and Johnson will tie the knot but I predict either a quickie wedding or waiting until after the baby is born and post-Olympics, again, if he ends up competing. It would be a great way to comeback as a father and a great example for little Phelps. We wish the couple the best of luck and cannot wait to see their little bundle of joy when he finally arrives!
