In a stark reversal from his Time Magazine interview last week, Michael Phelps has said he will have one "super child," after announcing he will wed Oprah Winfrey in a televised wedding this Friday. Oprah and Phelps both seemed excited at the prospect.
Phelps also said that due to advances in medical science, he will cross-breed genes of other "superior beings" with the child, in order to make it stronger. The Olympic swimmer released a short-list of several celebrities whose genes would contribute to the make-up of the child; among them Jennifer Anniston and TV handyman Bob Vila.
Winfrey and Phelps hope to speed up the birthing process to have the child ready for the 2012 summer qualifying races held in 2011. More details to come.
