Michael Phelps has taken to fatherhood like a duck to water. The Olympian swimmer welcomed his son Boomer with his fiancée Nicole Johnson last month and since then, Michael has been sharing the most adorable snaps with his fans.

As his latest photos show, Boomer has become the star of Michael's Instagram page. A recent picture showed the father-son duo resting in bed, with Boomer giving a slight wave to the camera.

"Boomer says what's up y'all!!!" wrote Michael.

The couple, who got engaged last year, have also been catching up on sleep when they can. A sweet snap showed Michael and Nicole bonding with their newborn in bed, while another photo that Nicole posted on her Instagram page showed her fiancé feeding their son.

The former beauty queen gave birth to Boomer just a few days before Mother's Day in the US. Celebrating her first as a mum, Nicole wrote: "I could not be more thankful for my lil family. Some of the best moments for me today were watching how incredible of a dad@m_phelps00 will be to our little one."
