Boomer Phelps has been steadily stealing the hearts of Americans across the nation since we first saw his sweet little face back in May, and he upped the ante even further as we watched him cheer on his daddy at the Olympics.

OMAHA, NE - JULY 01: Michael Phelps (L) of the United States celebrates with his fiance Nicole Johnson (R) and their son Boomer (C) after finishing first in the final heat for the Men's 200 Meter Individual Medley during Day Six of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Swimming Trials at CenturyLink Center on July 1, 2016 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Now that Michael is back at home, he took some time out to chat with Jimmy Fallon on the host’s The Tonight Show, giving us a bit more insight into his adorable tot’s name in the process.

“We heard the name, and we didn’t want like a normal name. I brought it up to Nicole and she was like, ‘Oh, it sounds kinda’ cool. Boomer… Boom Boom… We didn’t know either, we had no second option whatsoever.”

I'm ready for this summer!! Are you?!? #usa #roadtorio

In other words? Boomer was always meant to be a Boomer. It’s a name that’s practically destined for stardom, which is a good thing, since, as Michael points out, he’s a star on the rise.

“I write his account,” he said, proudly boasting that Boomer’s account has quickly gone from 5,000 followers to 681,000 followers — quite a few fans for a 16-week-old!

Watch Michael’s full interview with Jimmy below.
