Michael Phelps logs lap time with son Boomer at Baltimore pool


It didn't take long for Michael Phelps to get back in the water, and he might have some future swimming competition.

Phelps' 6-month-old son Boomer went for a dunk in a Baltimore pool, but at first wasn't too sure about the water. He didn't want to let go of the instructor but then latched on to Daddy.

Instructor Cathy Bennett, who is seen holding Boomer, was the same instructor who taught Phelps when he was young, the "Today Show" reported.

The complex is the same one where Phelps got his start.

Boomer was comforted so by Phelps holding him that he appears to nearly fall asleep in the water, but also kept a death grip on Daddy's chin and beard at times.

Phelps said that Boomer wasn't happy about getting his face wet, but handled it better than in previous outings. 

It was Bennett's third time swimming with Boomer, who will turn 7-months-old in December.
