Earlier this year, Phelps, a 23-time gold medal winner, told TODAY Parents that he's still over the moon about being a new dad.

"It's wild to think that a year has passed," said the legendary swimmer. "Nicole and I will still look at each other like, 'We have a child! This is our child.' It's probably the best thing I've ever, ever been able to be a part of."

Congratulations to the Phelps family!
