Michael Phelps is a father now

It's probably not news to anyone paying attention by now that Michael Phelps, getting ready to compete in the Rio 2016 Olympics (if Brazil actually manages to make them happen), just welcomed his baby boy with his fiancee Nicole Johnson, on April 30.  The kid's first name is Boomer.  Not sure I agree with that choice, but I guess it was OK for Boomer Esiason.   However, in that case the Boomer part was a nickname, not his given name.

There is no truth to the rumor that Boomer Phelps already swam a 2:05 200-meter butterfly (long course). Those "in the know" say that it was more like a 2:07-2:08.  Not bad since it was just a time trial and the kid didn't shave down.  And he was only 10 days old.
