It’s been a year since Boomer and his parents took the world by storm at the Summer Olympics in Rio. Phelps retired from swimming following the Games with a total of 23 Olympic gold medals. Since then, he’s been focused on his family, friends and finding new passions. 

“We’re going through life everyday happy and blessed with what we have,” he told People of expanding his family. “But I hope to have more kids in the future.”

Now’s the time, Phelps! Congrats.
