It looks like little Boomer Phelps might have a partner for those future Olympic relays! Gold medalist Ryan Lochte and his fiancé Kayla Rae Reid hit the pool on Wednesday, December 14 and made a serious splash on social media with an extra-special announcement. They're expecting!
Yes, Reid is pregnant with her and Lochte's first child and their aquatic announcement is a must-see.
Lochte may have added another gold medal to his impressive collection at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics this summer, but it turns out that wasn't even the biggest highlight of the swimmer's year. Fatherhood is officially stealing that title! Lochte and his fiancé took to Instagram to announce that they in fact have a baby on board, posting a photo of themselves splashing about in a swimming pool with Lochte kissing his bikini-clad bride-to-be's barely there baby bump underwater.
"My Christmas gift came early this year, can't wait for next year!" Lochte captioned the sweet photo. "Best news I've ever received #CLOUD9 #excited #family #love #2017."
Reid posted a similar poolside pic on her own Instagram account, writing "Just when you think you think you have it all figured out, life always surprises you with blessings when least expect it. So excited to share this news with all of you!" and added a baby emoji for good measure. "#weareprego #omg #2017."
With his Olympic success, a bride-to-be, and now a baby all under his belt, it looks like 2016 was a pretty good year for Lochte! (If you discount that whole fake Rio robbery thing...)
"Before I even got engaged, I wanted a family of my own," Lochte previously told E! News after proposing to his sweetheart. "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."
