Ryan Lochte might know a thing or two about winning Olympic medals and ways to perfect the backstroke, but this 32-year-old is about to enter uncharted waters: fatherhood. Ryan Lochte just announced he's going to be a dad with a photo that's adorably sweet and definitely makes a splash.


After Ryan headed into the pool with his fiancée, Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid, the parents-to-be took photos to commemorate their baby news that could also double as nautically stylish pregnancy announcements.

"My Christmas gift came early this year, can't wait for next year! Best news I've ever received," Ryan captioned on Instagram.

Aww, congrats!

Mom-to-be couldn't help but share a snap of her own of Ry gently kissing what looks to be a baby bump. "Just when you think you think you have it all figured out, life always surprises you with blessings when least expect it," Kayla writes. "So excited to share this news with all of you!"

What a creative pregnancy reveal idea!

It's no secret that Ryan found himself at the center of controversy this summer with the whole robbery lie. Even though he's not my favorite person, that doesn't mean that I can't gush a little over these endearing pics and wish his growing family the best.

Becoming a parent makes you grow up real fast, and I think (or hope, at least) Ry will dive into fatherhood and rise to the occasion. (I'm sure he will.) Plus, he can always ring up his pal Michael Phelps should he have questions -- or tips, like how to change a diaper.

I'm sure Mike's stoked at the thought of his son Boomer having a future swim buddy.

Congrats again on the news!
