Though he'd never been in the pool before, little Boomer has sat poolside to watch his dad. The tiny tot joined his mother and grandmother in the stands to watch Phelps clinch his spot on the United States swimming team. The gold metal winner, who will be swimming in his fifth Olympic Games, will head to Rio to compete in three individual events.

Phelps has said after this year, he will be retiring from the sport.

"For me to be able have the Olympics, a wedding and having my firstborn be able to watch or be able to be there while I swim in my last Olympics is something that is absolutely special," the athlete told "Today's" Matt Lauer.

We can't wait to see him compete ... with Boomer in tow!
