Ryan Lochte is engaged.
Ryan Lochte, 32, proposed to his Playmate girlfriend, Kayla Rae Reid, in Malibu over the weekend.
The couple shared the news on Instagram.
Lochte and Reid had reportedly been dating for about nine months.
He told USA TODAY he was ready to propose earlier this month.
Lochte, the U.S. Olympic swimmer, said he is ready to propose Kayla Rae Reid, the former Playboymodel Lochte said he met in January.
“My family says, ‘Don’t you think it’s a little too soon?’ I’m like, ’Can you put a time on love? Can you?’ ” Lochte told USA TODAY Sports. “When I realized this was ‘the one’ was when she stuck behind me through this.’’
Lochte and Reid previously hinted that they met on Tinder.
Speaking to DailyMail.com in August, the Olympian's stunning model girlfriend had hinted that they met on dating app Tinder.
'He was on Tinder. I might be on Tinder,' Kayla said with a smile. 'That's all I'm going to say about it.'
At the Summer Olympics in Rio, Lochte played down his relationship with Reid, saying he was single, but that obviously wasn't true.
Lochte says "everything has clicked" with Reid since the moment they met.
From USA TODAY:
“From the very first time I met her, everything has like clicked,’’ Lochte said. “That’s why I know I can propose to her because everything that’s happened and she’s been keeping me so positive. She doesn’t care about my fame. She doesn’t care about anything.
“All she cares about is me being happy.”
Congrats to the happy couple.
