Michael Phelps Spent His First Day As A Retired Swimmer In A Pool With His Son

Phelps is embarking on his greatest adventure yet: being a dad.

After competing in four consecutive Olympic games and winning 28 medals total, Michael Phelps is considered the greatest Olympian of all time.

Phelps, who won six medals in Rio alone, boasts 23 gold medals, three silver, and two bronze — the collective amount he's earned since beginning his Olympic journey at the 2004 Athens Games.

Well, he relaxes — in a pool, no less — with his fiancé, Nicole Johnson, and infant son, Boomer.

Phelps posted the image on Instagram yesterday and captioned it: "There's nothing like being back home!! Great way to spend my first day in retirement!! @boomerrphelps @nicole.m.johnson."

Phelps recently caught up with Access Hollywood and talked about his new beginning, and he was particularly happy about being able to spend more time with his son.

He's already a legendary Olympian, so he'll probably be an even greater dad.
