Go, Daddy, go! Michael Phelps’ son, Boomer, has been on hand to cheer on the Olympic gold medalist during his swimming trials in Omaha, Nebraska, and the infant is clearly the athlete’s No. 1 fan.

In an adorable photo that Phelps’ fiancée, Nicole Johnson, posted to Instagram on Tuesday, June 28, little 1-month-old Boomer is up in the stands at the trials, clad in a white T-shirt with the words “Team Daddy” emblazoned across the front.

“#teamdaddy all day err day!!” Johnson, 30, captioned the picture. “We LOVE you @m_phelps00 and we’re cheering super loud for you!!”

In yet another image that was shared to Boomer’s own Instagram page, the caption reads, “Mom and I are excited to go watch dad tonight!!”

The picture shows a beaming Johnson cradling Boomer in her arms in front of an oversized photo of Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, plastered to the arena wall.

Phelps is aiming to add to his collection of Olympic medals (he currently has 22) at the 2016 summer games in Rio.

Johnson and Phelps, 30, welcomed their baby boy — their first child together — on Thursday, May 5. The athlete shared a precious black-and-white photo of the family via Instagram several days later.

“Welcome Boomer Robert Phelps into the world!!!! Born 5-5-2016 at 7:21 pm!!!!Healthy and happy!!!! Best feeling I have ever felt in my life!!!” he captioned the sweet snapshot, which showed him kissing the top of a yawning Boomer’s head. “@nicole.m.johnson and Boomer both healthy!!! #boomerphelps.”

In an interview with Us Weekly back in November, Phelps said that though he won’t force swimming on his son, he will definitely make sure that his little one knows the basics.

“He’s definitely going to be water safe, that’s for sure!” the Olympian told Us. “If he wants to swim, I’ll let him. But I’m not pushing him. Everyone’s been commenting like, ‘I guess he’ll be in the Olympics in 2032, but no … if he wants to swim, he’ll swim, but he’ll definitely be water safe, that’s for sure.”

The Rio Olympics begin August 5 and will be streamed live on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app. The Rio Paralympics begin on September 7 and will be streamed live on TeamUSA.org.
