A big congrats goes out to Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole. The proud parents welcomed their third child on Monday!

Phelps announced the birth on Instagram, writing, “Family of 5! Welcome @mavericknphelps to the world! Born 9-9-19. Mama and baby are healthy and the boys are pumped to be big bros!”

The new dad (for the third time) wasn’t the only one to announce the birth of baby Maverick Nicolas. Phelps’ wife Nicole wrote, on her IG page, “We welcomed Maverick Nicolas Phelps into the world on 9/9/19 at 36 weeks and 2 days. Our lil big man was 6lb 5o and 20 (inches). He instantly has stolen all of our hearts and keeps me an ecstatic mommy of boys .”

If you’re wondering based on Phelps’ post, baby Maverick does indeed already have his very own Instagram page. Even though the newborn is yet to post a pic, he does have over 8,000 followers already!
