Michael Phelps Shares Video Of Son Boomer Learning To Swim!

Swimming legend Michael Phelps has shared an adorable video of his 6 month old son Boomer learning to swim under water.

The Olympian shared the footage on his Facebook page and shows the youngster acclimatising to the water in the pool with a little help and a lot of coaxing from his famous dad. Boomer’s mum is beauty queen Nicole Johnson who married Phelps in June of this year.

“Boomer is getting a little swim lesson while we’re at home in Baltimore right now,” Phelps says in the video. “This is the pool I used to train in way back in the day, the pool I learned to swim in, and now Boomer is learning here too.”

At first Boomer isn’t exactly loving the water and looks to be holding on to dad’s beard for dear life! But then he gets used to the water and looks to be at peace with his surrounds just as his dad always is.

 “He really does go to a happy place, just like daddy when he’s in the pool,” Phelps said. “The process is starting so that he gets to be more water-safe and becomes more relaxed and comfortable in the water.”

Check out the whole video below especially Boomer’s proud moment beginning at the 7:00 mark.
What a champion!
