"I changed my first diaper today," Phelps said. "The photos that (the doula) showed me of what diapers could look like freaked me out, not gonna lie. I was afraid to change a diaper at first, and today I was like, 'I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna have that experience before we leave.'"

Johnson jokingly called Phelps' first diaper change "a milestone."
