Olympic swimming superstar Michael Phelps has shared some adorable footage of his son Boomer learning to swim.

Even sweeter than seeing the little bub splashing about is the fact he’s being taught how to swim by Cathy Bennett, who taught Michael how to swim when he was 6 years old.

Phelps has won a total of 28 Olympic medals, including 23 golds.

In the clip, Cathy Bennett holds Boomer and helps him to float on his back before passing him back to Michael.

Phelps remarks: “He doesn’t want to get wet. He doesn’t want to put his face under. He is like dad I guess.”

Boomer nuzzles his head into his dad’s chest and appears to drift off.

Phelps adds: “Guess he really does just go to his happy place, just like daddy when he is in the pool.”
