Michael Phelps shared some big news on Instagram on Wednesday. The Olympic hopeful announced he and his former Miss California fiancee are expecting a child.
It’s been quite the roller-coaster year for the 30-year-old swimmer. He went from racking up his second DUI in Sept. 2014 to setting swimming the fastest 200-meter butterfly this year.
Phelps has credited his turnaround to his decision to check into an alcohol-treatment facility. The 22-time Olympic medalist has since vowed not to drink again, at least through the Olympics.
“Haven’t had a single sip and will not have a sip,” he told Sports Illustrated in a recent interview. “My body fat has dropped significantly, and I’m leaner than I’ve ever been. The performances were there because I worked, recovered, slept and took care of myself more than I ever had.”
