Say hello to your favorite 2032 Olympic swimmer, Boomer Phelps

Michael Phelps is back in the pool, baby! But this time he's not the one training...

The legendary 23-time Olympic gold medalist became a father back in May 2016, and lucky for us, his ridiculously adorable son Boomer is finally old enough to start following in his dad's footsteps.

On Friday the Phelps family announced they would be partnering with Huggies Little Swimmers to train Boomer for the 2032 Olympics. (!!!) The #Trainingfor2032 campaign encourages babies around the world to partake in fun and safe water play with their parents, but Phelps further explained the initiative at a very important and very real press conference.

"Some of the best memories of my life have been in the water — and none more special than the days I spend swimming with Boomer," Michael said while his son was busy stealing the show and eating the microphone.

"I'm not teaching Boomer to master the butterfly just yet, but #Trainingfor2032 includes safe water play that helps build comfort and confidence in the water," he added.

Phelps, who recently retired after a kick-ass run at the 2016 Olympics, and his wife Nicole just want to help swimmers thrive at a young age, and from the looks of it Boomer is really enjoying the water so far.

The campaign will reportedly feature funny videos starring Michael and Boomer. And if we're lucky they'll all be as entertaining as this video of him on a float.

Though his dad has made history in the water, Boomer and his patriotic Olympic fashion already stole the spotlight from the stands last year, so we have no doubt he'll be a star in the pool, too.

Phelps' Olympic teammate Ryan Lochte will also be a dad soon, so perhaps if we're lucky we'll get to see another Phelps/Lochte face-off at the 2032 games.

The world can only hope.
