Ryan Lochte is expecting a child with his fiancée.
The Olympic swimmer took to Instagram to reveal Kayla Rae Reid is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
Sharing a picture of the pair in a swimming pool where Ryan is kissing his fiancée’s tummy, he wrote: "My Christmas gift came early this year, can’t wait for next year! Best news I’ve ever received #CLOUD9 #excited #family #love #2017 (sic)"
The happy news comes after Ryan revealed he wanted to become a father sooner rather than later.
He said: "Before I even got engaged, I wanted a family of my own. I wanted to find the right one first and then have kids with her. Now that I’ve found the right one, that’s something we definitely talk about … we want kids and I mean, I’m ready to be a dad."
And the 32-year-old sportsman also revealed he wants to take a front seat in the planning of the couple’s wedding.
He added: "That’s one of the things that I wanted to do because this is not just her wedding, even though everyone always says it’s the woman’s wedding, but it’s mine too and we’re a couple now.
"I wanted to be involved as much as possible. I want to help her pick out the flowers, help pick out the cake … like everything. I want to be right there with her."
And Ryan also recently revealed he is keen to front a reality TV show with Kayla.
He said: "We’ve thought about it. We’ve already thought about it. I think that would be a lot of fun. Especially with us, if you see us when we’re home, we’re just a bunch of goofballs. It’s a lot of entertainment, so we would definitely do it."
