Phelps competed against South African rival Chad le Clos in his signature race on Tuesday night. The rematch came after Phelps lost against le Clos during the same race by 5/100ths of a second in the 2012 London Olympics. Phelps redeemed himself, beating silver medalist Masato Sakai with a time of 1.56.36. Le Clos didn’t medal and finished fourth.

The most-decorated Olympian athlete was cheered on by his fiancée and their little boy.

Us Weekly’s Cara Sprunk, who was on hand to witness Phelps’ historic moment, tells Us that Phelps’ fiancée and mom, Debbie, took a moment to snap selfies with Boomer before Phelps jumped in the water.

“Boomer was being very chill and didn’t seem to cry at all,” Sprunk recalls of Phelps’ mini-me. “When Michael came out, they all jumped up and Nicole made sure Boomer could see Michael.”

Phelps secured his 19th personal gold medal on Sunday during the men’s 4×100–meter freestyle relay.
