Now a proud family of six

Michael and Nicole shared the good news about their growing family in October. Nicole wrote in the post that showed their timeline as husband and wife: “For those that are wondering… yes! we’re expecting our 4th Phelps in 2024.”

Although Nicole is surrounded by boys, Michael says that she seems to love it. In an interview, he shared: “I think Nicole said something along the lines of, like, ‘I’m so lucky to have a house full of boys and no girls,’ and Boomer looked at her and said, ‘Mommy, you’re the girl in our house.’ So we’ve been saying that and it’s true, she’s the queen.”

The couple met in 2007 and married in 2016 in three different ceremonies.
