Phelps told Us  about how he found out that his wife — whom he secretly married in June 2016 after dating on and off for eight years — was expecting their second child.

“I kind of had an idea that she could be pregnant … I could tell she was acting, not different or funny, but I could tell that she wanted to say something,” he told Us in October. “Nicole had made this little journal for me of photos of just Boomer and I and photos of Nicole and I and experiences, and we just put like special moments in that little journal. I woke up [one] morning and she handed me the journal and said open it. I opened to the photo of them in the backyard with the pregnancy test. I was pumped!”
