Someone is Actually Marrying Ryan Lochte

Ryan Lochte Engaged


Ryan Lochte, Dancing with the Stars contestant and controversial Olympic swimmer, just proposed to his girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid and she actually said yes. The man is getting married! Congratulations!!

The 32-year-old dance aficionado shared a photo of himself kissing his new fiancée while overlooking the Pacific Ocean from atop Malibu Canyon. Captioned with “Memories forever!!! #TheLochtes,” the photo speaks for itself. There’s a whole lot of love going on and the ring is literally blinding. Let’s have a look:

Yup, they both seem thrilled. And look at that massive diamond on her finger! The man did good. Kayla Rae Reid, a former Playboy Playmate who reportedly met Lochte on Tinder, also shared a joyful engagement Instagram photo yesterday with the caption “Speechless. Absolutely beautiful. So in love with YOU.”

Speechless. Absolutely beautiful. So in love with YOU. ❤️

Aw you guys!! We’re blushing. But the proposal wasn’t exactly a surprise; Lochte teased that something was coming in a recent USA Today interview.

“When I realized this was ‘the one’ was when she stuck behind me through this … She still loves me and she’s still right there with me,” he said regarding the Rio incident. The two have only been dating since January, but when a woman is willing to stick through all of that BS, you should put a ring on it real quick.

Congrats you two!
