Michael Phelps says he'd 'love, love, love' a little sister for Boomer

Michael Phelps may be the most decorated Olympian of all time, but these days he's thinking about putting his energies into a different kind of deep end — by expanding his family!

We've all been charmed by Phelps snuggling up to his 3-month-old son Boomer Robert. But now, says Phelps, he would like a little girl to add to the clan (Boomer's mom is Phelps' fiancée Nicole Johnson).

The little man loved the water today!! @boomerrphelps and I got some extra laps in today!! #mpswim

"We've talked about more [children]. We don’t really know how many more we want," the 31-year-old told People. "I think we’re gonna have some fun with Boomer before we make that next choice of trying for another one."

"We would love a girl. Love, love, love a girl. We wanted a boy first, just in case we did have other children, [so] he could be the protector of his younger sibling or siblings. So we started off on a perfect note: We got a boy. We got a beautiful, healthy baby boy, and we’re looking to continue to grow our family."
