The swimming sensation and his fiancee, Nicole Johnson, welcomed a baby boy together on Thursday, May 5. Two days after Johnson gave birth, the athlete posted a proud papa photo showing off his wee one -whom the couple named Boomer Robert Phelps.

Phelps had been training at high altitude in Colorado and left the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to return to Johnson’s side.

Last month at a meet in Mesa, Arizona, Phelps said the couple had already selected the baby’s name, although he didn’t reveal it then.

“It’s something we both agreed on, thought it was different,” he said.

Asked what type of parent he would be, Phelps said, “I’ll probably be very protective. That’s how I am.”

Phelps credited Johnson for being “nothing but one of the best supporters I could ask for.”

The black-and-white photo features the shirtless swimmer and his bundle of love, as the adoring new mom rests in a hospital bed. Along with the Instagram photo, the 22-time medalist wrote, “Welcome Boomer Robert Phelps into the world!!! Born 5-5-2016 at 7:21 pm !!! Healthy and happy!!! Best feeling I have ever felt in my life!!!@nicole.m.johnson and Boomer both healthy!!!”

Phelps is currently training to compete in his final Olympic games this summer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Summer Olympics begin on August 5, 2016, on NBC.
