Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte, and his fiancée, Kayla Rae Reid, have become parents! Reid, a former Playboy model, has given birth to a healthy baby boy! The pair announced their engagement in October 2016 and revealed her pregnancy in December.
“Never seen a miracle happen before. Until this morning at 5:46am when Caiden Zane Lochte was born. 7lbs 14oz, 22 inches,” Lochte wrote on Instagram soon after the birth. “Can’t stop crying from tears of joy. Dream come true!”
It’s interesting to see Lochte being so open and emotional about his baby joy, especially since his reputation suggests he’s not the best person. Maybe, this is the beginning of his public image changing.
After all, Reid recently told ESPN, “I wasn’t interested in him at first. I’d heard he was a party guy. He was so different than what I imagined.”
Meanwhile, a quote from the same article from article was just as surprising: “You know when you meet someone for the first time and you have your guard up and don’t want to be too intimate about certain things?” the swimmer asked. “I didn’t have my guard up. It was like talking with my best friend.”
