A baby on the way! Michael Phelps and his wife, Nicole Phelps, are all set to welcome their second child “any day now,” the athlete exclusively confirmed to media.
On Wednesday, February 7, the 32-year-old swimmer said,
We are so stoked for the second baby. Nicole and I didn’t know what to expect with No. 1, we’ve gone through it with one child and now it’s going to be the same, we really went through the process of learning how to care for a baby, so we feel a little more prepared, but also know that two is going to be very, very different.
Last August, the couple announced that they were expecting their second baby, posting matching photos via Instagram, holding their first child, Boomer.
Check out those posts.
While talking to Us Weekly, Michael said at the time,
We kind of have the same attitude that we had for number one and hope for the best and everything going as smooth as possible and hoping for a healthy baby and learning how challenging it is. We really are now focused on making sure the baby is healthy and Nicole is happy and healthy.
The parents have even purchased a gift for both Boomer and baby no. 2 and now Michael is on the hunt for the perfect gift for his wife.
We got a present for Boomer and for the new baby to come home to, so now I just have to worry about my wife. She got a little something last time and I’m looking for a present for this time, but time is running out, it feels that baby could come any day now, so my back is up against the wall. I have to find something soon.
The couple secretly married in June 2016 after eight years of an on-and-off relationship.
