Ryan Lochte + Kayla Rae Reid Jeah-nnounce They’re Having a Baby
Engaged couple Ryan Lochte and Kayla Rae Reid announced last night (December 14) that they’re having a baby, and the kid is already awash in love (this is a swimming joke — Lochte is a swimmer).
Both Lochte and Reid shared the news on Instagram in separate posts — each finds the parents-to-be submerged underwater with Lochte kissing Reid’s pregnant belly. “My Christmas gift came early this year, can’t wait for next year! Best news I’ve ever received,” Lochte wrote, while Reid noted “Just when you think you think you have it all figured out, life always surprises you with blessings when least expect it.”
Lochte and Reid first announced they were engaged in October. Lochte shared news on Instagram that he proposed to his wife-to-be while overlooking a scenic Malibu coastline and captioned a photo “Memories forever!”
Lochte had previously tried to deny he was in a relationship when news outlets first ran stories that he and Reid were dating, but People reported that Reid stayed by his side and offered tremendous support after assailants infamously stormed the stage to protest Lochte’s DWTS bid on the show’s most recent season.
