We are so excited to announce that Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole have just welcomed a sweet little boy into this world! Both mother and baby are doing great! It is always a special moment when a new baby is welcomed into a family. Phelps announced the new arrival on his Instagram by showing a picture of himself, Nicole and their three children all on the hospital bed. It is just the sweetest pictures and we are so happy for the new family of 5! The couple named their sweet little baby boy Maverick Nicolas Phelps! We can't get over the name. It is perfect and fits the family perfectly. Little Maverick was born on September 9 and weighed 6lbs 5oz and was 20 inches long.

Maverick is the third boy to join the Phelps' crew. Michael and Nicole also have two older boys; Boomer (3) and Beckett (1). Michael said that their boys are in love with the baby boy and they both seem very excited to be older brothers. Nicole said that little Maverick has made her very ecstatic to be a mother of boys. The couple didn't know the gender of the baby before he was born and so they were stoked to be able to welcome another baby boy in their family and to be a house full of boys!

The couple announced their pregnancy back in March and we were so excited for them to have another family. They announced their pregnancy by showing Boomer and Becket riding in a motorized children's car with balloons on the front that spelled "BABY." We were all anxiously waiting for them to reveal the gender of the third baby but they never did. The couple decided to be "team green" and not find the gender of their sweet baby until the arrival which was very exciting for them. They said that they anxiously waited until the delivery to reveal the gender.

Congratulations to the couple on their newest little boy! We are happy to hear that both Nicole and Maverick are doing well and that they are healthy. We hope for continued health and for mom to have a quick and easy recovery! Oh, and we can't wait to see more pictures of the three boys together!
