Boomer Phelps Makes His Red Carpet Debut as Dad Michael Wins Swimmer of the Year!

Michael Phelps is joined on the red carpet by wife Nicole Johnson and son Boomer as they arrive at the Golden Goggles Awards on Monday night (November 21) at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

The 31-year-old Olympian was honored with three awards – including USA Swimming’s 2016 Male Athlete of the Year – during the night for his achievements in swimming this year.

Michael was joined at the event by his relay-team members Caeleb Dressel, Ryan Held, and Nathan Adrian.

Inside the event, Michael opened up about his secret wedding to Nicole earlier this year.

Michael shared that Boomer‘s last name – Phelps – would be a travel issue before heading to the 2016 Rio Olympics, so he and Nicole decided to marry before the games so that Nicole and Boomer would both share the same last name.

“We wanted to try to make it as smooth as we could for them to travel,” Michael told USA Today.

He went on to share that they married in a small ceremony in their backyard with only close friends and family.

When asked if he planned on professionally competing again, Michael had this to say:
I’m still in the pool (for fun). I’m still not coming back.”
