Michael Phelps and his fiancee, Nicole Johnson, are expecting their first baby, Phelps announced on Instagram Wednesday. "We found out 8weeks ago we were expecting... Today we're over 12 weeks and it looks like we're having a boy!!! #babymp #mp #lifeabouttochange #mpswim," Phelps wrote alongside a picture of the couple holding up a very tiny Speedo. He and Johnson, who won Miss California in 2010, have been dating off and on since 2007, and People notes they "have long remained friends" despite splitting in 2011 and getting back together last year. They got engaged in February. (Another celebrity couple recently announced their pregnancy.)
