Michael Phelps is going to be a daddy!

The Olympic gold medalist and fiancee Nicole Johnson announced the pregnancy on Instagram yesterday.

“We found out eight weeks ago we were expecting … Today we’re over 12 weeks and it looks like we’re having a boy!!!” Phelps wrote.

The happy news is cause for celebration after a tumultuous past few months. Phelps, who has struggled with alcohol abuse in the past, was recently charged with another drunken driving arrest.

USA Swimming handed him a six-month competition suspension in October for a code of conduct violation.
