Olympic champion — he has medaled 22 times— and Official Hottie With a Body (tm, me/the world), Michael Phelps welcomed his first child, a baby boy, into the world. His fiancée, Nicole Johnson, gave birth on Thursday, May 5, and he posted the first pic today. And he's shirtless in it. Because the universe loves you. 

He captioned the adorable photo, "Welcome Boomer Robert Phelps into the world!!! Born 5-5-2016 at 7:21 pm !!! Healthy and happy!!! Best feeling I have ever felt in my life!!! @nicole.m.johnson and Boomer both healthy!!! #boomerphelps 📷 @boonestudios"

In March, Phelps told Us Weekly, "One of the coolest things about being a father going into Rio is that our firstborn has the chance to see my last race ever," he said. "I think that's something that'll be really special that we'll be able to share stories with him, you know, from the time he gets old enough to realize, and I'm excited to have a lot of photos and just to share the moments and memories with him growing up as a kid."

Adorable!
