Michael, who secretly married Nicole in June 2016 ahead of the Rio Olympics, has been open about his desire to expand his family. “We would love a girl," he told People magazine last August. "Love, love, love a girl. We wanted a boy first, just in case we did have other children, [so] he could be the protector of his younger sibling or siblings.”

At the time, Michael added, “We started off on a perfect note: We got a boy. We got a beautiful, healthy baby boy, and we’re looking to continue to grow our family.”
