ICYMI Michael Phelps became a Daddy (both in the paternal and gay slang sense) on May 5, 2016 when his son, Boomer, was born.
Phelps, along with wife Nicole Johnson and baby Boomer, instantly became the family we all wish we had been born into.
A mere few months old, Boomer was already racking up Gold Medals.
Of course, Boomer didn't want to miss his Dad's last (most likely) Olympics So he travelled with Mommy, Daddy, and Grammy Debbie to Rio.
But then, things took a turn. Michael kept being Michael, winning race after race. But the spotlight shifted. Not to the sexy, former Miss CA Nicole Johnson. Not to the incredible force that is Debbie Phelps. But to BOOMER!
Who had no shame in front of the photographers. He was quickly caught being bored with his Dad's race.
He got cranky and made no apologies for it.
His Mom cheering for her hubby woke him up from a nap. And he was pissed!
When Chad le Clos walked by, Boomer was not amused.
Like father like son.
Even when Daddy came to kiss him, Boomer made sure the camera got his good side!
When the Medal Ceremony was past his bedtime, he refused to attend. Though he did Facetime (with some help from Mom) with Dad to congratulate him.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter is IN LOVE with the little future Olympian.
And like most budding celebrities, he was quick to get a Twitter account.
BUT, like most babies, he still gets called out by his Mom every now and then.
To sum up, Boomer Phelps is truly the breakout start of the Rio Games!
