ATTENTION IOC: Give BOOMER PHELPS All The Gold Medals!

There's a new man atop the podium, and he weighs less than 10 pounds...

Posted on

ICYMI Michael Phelps became a Daddy (both in the paternal and gay slang sense) on May 5, 2016 when his son, Boomer, was born.

That's a #DadBod we can all get behind (or in front of).

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.

We're guessing all his clothing is sponsored by Team USA.

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!

Move over Daddy. This is my year!

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.

Boomer Phelps is the Prince George of the American aristocracy.

Move over North and Saint West. There's a new royal baby in town.

Disappointed that the Michael Phelps emoji's don't include Boomer #favoritephelps

Boomer was unable to comment on his emoji development due to having to poop.

And like most budding celebrities, he was quick to get a Twitter account.

Dad's busy cupping. Can you come change my diaper Mom? @MissNicoleJ

BUT, like most babies, he still gets called out by his Mom every now and then.

He would never say this to his daddy! https://t.co/XkD1rt4GWK

To sum up, Boomer Phelps is truly the breakout start of the Rio Games!
