Michael Phelps’ wife Nicole Johnson is the mother of their child Boomer Phelps. Like most new fathers, Phelps said that he was the happiest person in the world. Only a few weeks ago, Nicole shared a photo of the three of them hugging. She was pleasantly surprised that they’d been able to build a family together through all the “ups and downs.” You see, Phelps and Johnson had dated and broken up several times through their lives. Phelps first walked into her life nine years ago and it’s obvious that she didn’t think a reunion would happen this late in the game.
Boomer Phelps has been attending all of his daddy’s races. The media is eating it up, constantly showing images of little Boomer wearing hearing protection. I’ve always wondered just how effective that hearing protection is for babies. It never seems to make a full seal. I once saw a baby at a music festival, in probably the tenth row at midnight. It was stunning to me. Additionally, I wonder whether the baby gets annoyed at the feeling of the hearing protection.
Michael Phelps’ wife Nicole is traveling to Rio so she can watch him in his last Olympics. Michael said it was cool that his newborn baby will get the chance to see him race too. Unfortunately, she’ll have no idea what she’s looking at, but that’s a minor detail. Michael and Nicole rekindled their relationship after nine years of off-and-on. Michael probably just decided to give settling down a go. They call each other best friends and take lots of cutesy photos together. The only activities that Nicole seems to take part in besides travel are posting pictures of her baby and baby clothes on social media. She’s taking it easy up until Olympics time.
It’s been quite a year for Michael Phelps. Roughly a year ago, Michael was pulled over for DUI. In the car with him was a woman who used to be a man, or as she calls it “intersex”. That’s a new term for me actually. It was a pretty awkward situation that happened last March. Anyway, Michael Phelps’ wife Nicole is all about the little one. Most of her social media posts are pictures of the baby, pictures of the baby with Michael, or pictures of her with the baby. It’s not exactly interesting for non-family. Under Armour made some custom shoes for Nicole that have a baby footprint on them and the word “Boomer” printed under the footprint. Additionally, Nicole showed them off along with her specially painted nails with the Olympics logo on them.
