Michael Phelps celebrated his 19th Olympic gold with his baby son Boomer.

The swimmer, who is the most decorated athlete in Olympic history, took home a gold medal Sunday night in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay. Though he already had 18 golds, the 19th was special -- it was his first after his son Boomer was born.

Phelps' fiancee, Nicole Johnson, posted a photo to Boomer's Instagram account saying, "Thanks for sharing your gold medal with me dad!!! I love you and can't wait til I get to see you." In the photo, she and Boomer are talking to the swimmer on Facetime.

We get the feeling this isn't the last time Boomer will see a gold medal on Facetime -- and Boomer has promised on Instagram in a previous post, "I'm ready to go after my daddy re retires."
