Among the carousel of photos, Nicole Phelps included sweet family memories of the two of them and their cute kids.
Life with four little ones is bound to bring some changes. Michael Phelps and Nicole previously spoke to People about parenthood in 2021. She said, “We don’t hide from emotions. We teach them that daddy or mommy is having a moment and we need to either give them space or ask if they want a hug. And that’s taught them they have permission for their feelings to be heard too.”
Nicole Phelps recently shared her insights as a working mother, navigating mental health—through the Michael Phelps Foundation—and on raising resilient kids with Motherly. In 2022 they partnered with Nemours Children’s and created a video series that gives parents important skills regarding cultivating resilience in kids.
“Parenting is a life-long journey, but we don’t have to go it alone,” she previously said. “It really does take a village.”
Congrats to their growing family!
