Michael Phelps’ Pregnant Wife Nicole Says ‘There Is Always Guilt’ as a Mom ‘No Matter What’


Despite its upsides, very few people would likely call parenting an easy or straightforward task. Just ask Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole.

The spouses pose for the cover and inside the pages of Parents magazine‘s July issue, where they talk water safety, preparing for baby No. 3 on the wayand how life has changed since they welcomed sons Beckett Richard, 15 months, and Boomer Robert, 3 — who joined them for the pool photo shoot.

“I have to give myself time,” Nicole, 33, says of what keeps her sane as a soon-to-be mom of three. “There is always guilt, no matter what — do the laundry, clean the sink, put away the kids’ stuff — but if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that it will all be there later, but the time for me to be a healthy parent and a healthy wife is right now.”
