Ryan Lochte and his fiancée, Kayla Rae Reid, have a lot to celebrate as 2016 comes to a close!
Not only did the pair announce their engagement in October, but they recently revealed that they’re expecting their first child together.
Kayla showed off her tiny baby bump in a bikini on Thursday, Dec. 29, writing, “Getting my bronze on. Such a beautiful day.” Just one day before, the mom-to-be flaunted her gigantic diamond ring from the Olympic swimmer while holding a mug that reads “The Mrs.”
The couple first told fans they were engaged two months ago after less than a year of dating. "Speechless. Absolutely beautiful. So in love with YOU," the blonde beauty wrote after the proposal.
The controversial athlete hinted at marriage just days before he popped the question. "From the very first time I met her, everything has like clicked,’’ he said at the time. “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."
Two months later, the duo announced their pregnancy with an adorable underwater pic. “My Christmas gift came early this year, can’t wait for next year! Best news I’ve ever received,” Ryan captioned the post, while Kayla added, “Just when you think you have it all figured out, life always surprises you with blessings when [you] least expect it. So excited to share this news with all of you!”
But the couple has also weathered their fair share of storms during the relationship, most notably after Ryan was caught lying about a mugging incident during the Rio Olympics.
