America's most decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, who recently announced that his wife Nicole Johnson is expecting the couple's third child, said he would love to have a girl. The couple have two sons —Boomer Robert, three and Beckett Richard, one.

"I think Nicole would hope for a girl as well. We have a Daddy's boy and a Mommy's boy, so maybe we can get a Daddy's girl and a Mommy's girl. Everyone talks about how awesome girls are, so I look forward to having that opportunity," Phelps told People magazine.

He added that if they welcome a boy, it will be chaos in the Phelps household. "If we get lucky enough to have a third boy, it is going to be craziness in our house," he said.
