Thousands of miles away from Pyeongchang, there's some exciting Olympian news to report. Twenty-eight-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps and his wife, Nicole Johnson, have welcomed a baby boy, Beckett Richard Phelps. Baby Beckett joins the couple's son, Boomer, who will turn 2 in May and has way more Instagram followers than me.

Phelps shared the exciting news on his own Instagram account with a photo of Johnson, Beckett and Boomer. "Magical moments yesterday... Nicole and I would like to introduce Beckett Richard Phelps to the world!" he captioned the post. "We had a healthy baby boy and a healthy mama. I truly do feel like the happiest man in the world. Being able to build our family to now 4 (6 with doggies) is so incredible! #familyof4now."

I can’t wait til I get to teach him so many cool things about the world!! #bigbro," Boomer captioned his post. (OK, maybe Mom or Dad was responsible for that.)
