Michael Phelps & his wife Nicole are expecting their third child


Well, we’ve finally learned how Michael Phelps will spend his retirement for swimming – diaper duty. Michael and his wife, Nicole, have another baby (their third) on the way. Michael posted this announcement over the weekend:

Nicole posted the same pic but captioned it “Oops we did it again”. The two little faces in that photo are the couple’s sons, Boomer, two, and Beckett, 13 months. So that will be potentially three under three when the latest Phelps arrives. Oof, thank goodness Michael is a trained Olympic athlete – he *might* just have the stamina to pull it off.

When he’s not making babies, Michael is carving out a bit of a niche as a motivational speaker. He’s still repping Under Armour and that has him flying hither and yon, which must be nice. But don’t ask him that question, you know, that one that rhymes with “Yokyo.” Michael says his retirement will stick this time, that he really did do what he set out to do in Rio. I love watching Michael swim, as you know, but I agree – go out on top. Plus, his foundation is growing, as is his family, so I can understand why he wants to focus on those things. He spent a lot of time away when Boomer was a baby because of Rio, I imagine he wants to reclaim that time now, and he should. Going off his Instagram, he’s living his best life out there.

But who are we kidding? This entire post was just an excuse to post Phelps’ babies pictures so let’s get to it!

    I bet it’s going to be a boy !
    I am expecting my third one and it’s another boy !!
    So I have runed “statistics” arround me, turns out if the first 2 are the same sex, chances are the third one will be the same (if same 2 parents). Chances are 78%

      Congrats on your 3rd baby boy! I have 4 friends with 3 kids. Two of them are all boys, one is all girls and the other one is boy, boy, girl. So your statistics work in my world! But I would love to see the statistics on 4 kids because I have three friends with four kids. Two of them are three boys followed by a girl and one of them is three girls followed by a boy.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      In my not-so-scientific research (just my observations, lol), I’ve found if the first two are opposite, the second and third are usually the same. And if the first two are the same then the third tends to be the opposite.

      I had three boys under three and the fourth arrived sixteen months later – another boy. In my family, when we pick a gender we stick with it!
