Michael Phelps' Mom, Fiancee, & Baby Visit 'Today Show'

Debbie Phelps and Nicole Johnson sit down for an interview on The Today Show on Friday morning (August 12) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The mom and fiancee of swimmer Michael Phelps, who were joined by his three-month-old son Boomer, chatted about his journey to become the greatest Olympian of all time.

“It’s rather amazing to think of Michael’s journey since 2000 at age 15 and now 31,” Debbie said. “Michael is very driven, driven to correct things that have gone wrong, to set goals for himself as to where he wants to be. I’ve never seen him so happy as he is now.”

“It’s been incredible, because I’ve watched it first-hand — the training, the dedication, the downside and coming back from all of that,” Nicole added.

Ryan Lochte Says He'd 'Be the Michael Phelps of Swimming If He Wasn’t There’

Ryan Lochte sits down for an interview on The Today Show on Friday morning (August 12) on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 32-year-old swimmer opened up about his disappointing final swim at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics the night before. While he won a gold medal in the Men’s 4x200m freestyle relay earlier in the week, Ryan didn’t medal in his other event, the 200m individual medley.

In an interview taped before the Olympics, but aired on Thursday night, Ryan opened up about his teammate Michael Phelps. He was asked if he is glad that they are around in the same era.

“Yes and no. My career would definitely be different,” Ryan said. “I guess you would say I’d be like the Michael Phelps of swimming if he wasn’t there. But at the same time I love a challenge, and that’s why I do the events that I do and going up against him is a challenge.”
