It's refreshing to see that Michael Phelps (pictured here with wife Nicole) continues to be outspoken about his long battle with depression and its side effects.

The Olympic swimmer and multi-multi-multi gold medalist is living at the top of his game as a father and husband right now, and because he's in such a good place in life, he's been more outspoken about when times weren't so good.

With baby number two on the way, Michael Phelps couldn't be happier… but that wasn't always the case.

There was a time the 32-year-old Olympian struggled with anxiety and depression — something he speaks candidly about in the new documentary, Angst.

Telling Us Weekly about his involvement in the project, the swimmer said of his own experience with mental health:

"For me, it was all about being vulnerable. I think it's scary for a lot of people to think about that word. I just wanted to change. I was to the point where I didn't like who I was. I didn't like looking at myself like seeing the reflection that you see in the mirror. I kind of just tackled it head-on."

As you may know, Phelps past struggles included DUIs and a stint in rehab.

They went all out!

The sports world is having its moment!

Following the ESPYs, Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, and Aly Raisman reunited once again on Thursday night!

Maybe not to be outdone, Gabby was definitely having a moment in her sequined black crop top and matching pencil skirt, while Simone opted for a purple mini dress with black heels.

Sadly for Aly, we're still not really sure what she was going for with her sailor-esque frock!

The Schutz heels and her Alexis Bittar ring were cute tough.

Lamar Odom, Michael Phelps, and Russell Wilson (accompanied by his stepson Future Jr.) were also in attendance. You can check them out in the gallery (above)!

Kevin Durant Was NOT Happy About Being Roasted In Peyton Manning's ESPYs Monologue — See The Funny Memes & More Show Highlights!

Kevin Durant can make shots, but he can't take them!

At least that was the case during Wednesday night's ESPY Awards, when the basketball pro was seriously not impressed about being mocked in Peyton Manning's opening monologue!

The former Denver Broncos QB and ESPYs host fired off a few jokes to open the ceremony, telling the crowd that the Women's Gymnastics Final Five — Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, and Aly Raisman — were "so dominant" at the summer Olympics that "Kevin Durant told me he wants to play for them next year," adding:

"I've got to tell ya. I don't think he'd start for that team."

LOLz!!

The camera cut to the NBA star (who has been criticized for joining the Golden State Warriors this past season as many believed it was just to win a championship) sitting in the audience, and his hilariously displeased reaction made it clear he did not appreciate being roasted.

Add Durant's face with the fact that he was strikingly underdressed for the event — rocking a T-shirt while surrounded by tuxes and dresses — and it's no surprise the moment became an instant meme:
