The future-parents-of-three also shared the exciting news on the two Instagram accounts they run for the boys.

Boomer’s post reads “I asked mom for a new baby for Christmas last year and …. well my wish finally came true!!! I wonder if I’m gonna have little brother or a little sister? #P3.”

While Beckett’s announcement post says “I’m not sure what this means but I was just told I’m promoted to Big Brother!! #P3.”

What an adorable family!!

Michael and Nicole wed in June 2016, one month after welcoming their first child, Boomer. Their second child, Beckett, was born over a year ago in February 2018, and now the family is growing again.

The athlete has earned 28 Olympic medals, three of them gold, with an arm span three inches longer than his 6-foot-4-inch frame.

I guess his long arms are going to be full now, with two kids, and another one coming soon.

Congrats to the happy couple!
