Michael Phelps‘ son is already following in his footsteps.

On Sunday, former Olympic gold medalist and current NBC swimming analyst Rowdy Gaines tweeted a photo of a pair of Under Armour shoes belonging to the 31-year-old Rio-bound swimmer.  Inked onto one of the insoles? Twelve-week-old Boomer Robert‘s tiny footprint.

“Loving @MichaelPhelps shoes [with] son Boomer’s foot imprint on one of them,” the caption read. “So dang cute.”

Phelps recently posted an abs-tastic Instagram photo of himself and friends at his last American practice before the kickoff of the 2016 Summer Olympics, where he will serve as a captain of the U.S. swim team alongside five of his teammates.

“Last practice on American soil complete!! Nothing like a little fun afterwards with the crew!! #number5 #letsdothis #mp #mpswim,” he captioned the snap.

Michael has ENORMOUS flippers er…feet. I wonder if Boomer’s are as (relatively) huge.

what a §$%&/()=?`’# name for a baby/child, ever thought about future dear?

While I think Boomer is a ridiculous name, he was named in honor of Michael’s long time swimming coach and mentor. The man who stepped in after his father stepped out.

Michael had some seeds to sew and now he has grown. His wife and baby are both adorable. He looks very happy. They all look happy…down to even baby Boomer.

What a terrific idea for his shoes. I could not be happier for Michael….but especially for his Mom. She’s stood by his side through it all and to see her son….happy, settled and content….is worth most than all of the Olympic gold metals in the world. I’ll bet she is loving her little grandson to pieces as well. So deserving…
