Ryan Lochte and fiancée Kayla Rae Reid welcomed their first child, son
"As soon as I saw the head pop out, I immediately bawled my eyes out," Lochte told Us Weekly of his son's birth. "We're on cloud nine. It's a dream come true."
Added Reid, "I'm still in shock. I can't believe we made a baby!"
While the duo is new to parenting, they're confident their own upbringings have prepared them for the challenges they'll face.
"We both grew up with great parents who taught us a bunch," Lochte explained. "So there's no doubt in our minds we're going to be great parents."
Lochte added that he can't
The athlete shared that while he hopes his son is interested in athletics, he doesn't want to push him toward swimming.
"I want him to be very active, but I want him to choose what he wants to do," the Olympian said. "Whatever he does, I want him to go all in. I don't want him to half-ass anything."
Lochte has been sharing plenty of snaps of his son on social media since his birth, including this sweet shot of himself and Reid cuddled up with baby
"Now this is what it's all about..... family!!!!!!!" the swimmer wrote.
