That’s right, the swimmer and his fiancée, Kayla Rae Reid, welcomed a baby boy on Thursday morning, Us Weekly exclusively reports. This is the couple’s first child together.
“Never seen a miracle happen before. Until this morning at 5:46 am when CAIDEN ZANE LOCHTE was born. 7 lbs 14oz, 22 inches. can’t stop crying from tears of joy. Dreams come true,” he wrote on Instagram, adding “I’m a daddy” in the caption.
Lochte and Reid, a former Playboy model, announced they were expecting back in December two months after getting engaged. The two first met last year after bumping into each other at a Hollywood club, and the rest was history.
“It’s another thing we have in common: We both want kids, we want to create a family of our own, and I think that’s something that’s really important to us as well,” Lochte told Us Weekly after the announcement.
And so they did.
