When a user asked how they are adapting to parenthood in a FB?Live show, he replied, "Honestly...it's kind of cool to adjust together with my wife. Obviously this is the first time we are experiencing these things together as parents, and I think that's something that's helping us grow."

Phelps also had some amazing insights to share about his son Boomer. "He's literally off to the races [while walking]. Running, going crazy. Never sits still. It's so fun to watch. He [Boomer] does use sign language. He says more, thank you, please. He blows kisses and waves. He's learning a bunch," said Phelps.

Phelps added that he loves watching Boomer play. "Booms, honestly. You should see him with other kids. It's so funny. All he wants to do is run up to them and hug them. It's so amazing to see."
