“I’m going to be a dad! I feel blessed,” Grevers wrote alongside an Instagram photo showing three pairs of swim flippers last month. They’ll be a swimming family; Matt and Annie met in 2007 while training for the 2008 Olympics.

Annie posted the same photo to her account, along with "#GrowingAnAmazonWoman," a nod to their heights — Matt is 6-foot-8 and Annie is 6-foot-1.

More proof that the little girl will likely grow up to be tall like her parents? Annie shared a video on Instagram of her ultrasound a week ago. “Saw Lady Grevers up close today!” she captioned the clip. “At nearly 15 wks she has a strong heart, beautiful spine and long femurs!!”

I'm going to be a dad! I feel blessed.

“We’re both excited to start one, but we want to wait after trials and after the Olympics,” the two-time Olympian said. “I would love to start a family now, but if it’s two weeks before the race, and they need 2 a.m. feedings, I think I’d want Annie to take care of it. As horrible as this sounds, I need to sleep for the race. And she was like, ‘Yeah, we’ll just wait.’ And I was like, ‘OK good!’”

“It sounds awesome to hang out with your kid at 2 in the morning. I probably won’t love it when it’s happening, but I didn’t want to miss that,” the 31-year-old explained. “So we’re waiting just a little bit and hopefully we can start a family after Rio.”
