Congratulations are in order for the wildly popular American Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte and his wife, Kayla Rae Reid. On November 30, the couple took to their social media accounts to make a massive announcement - baby number two is on the way!
On January 9, 2018, Lochte, 34, and Reid, 27, said their I do’s in front of 100 of their friends and family. Together, they share a precious two-year-old baby boy, Caiden Zane Lochte who is undeniably their pride and joy.
Upon welcoming their first child, Reid was completely overcome with the emotion of seeing her Olympic sweetheart step into the realm of fatherhood. “To see the look on his face when he saw Caiden was adorable and priceless, it was such an emotional moment for the both of us. I’m in awe every day and I love watching our little man grow daily. His face melts my heart.”
The couple each made their official announcement on Instagram, both sharing and image of the happy trio with an image of the sonogram. Lochte wrote, “BOOM!!!!! Baby number 2! Can’t wait to bring my fam of 4 to #tokyo2020 #blessed #Lochte4 #familyjustgotbigger”
Reid shared the same photo with a short, sweet caption as well: “We are SO SO EXCITED! Baby #2! We can’t wait to meet you already!”
According to the caption on her photo, the newest member of the Lochte clan is set to make his or her arrival in June of 2019. When asked about their hopes of gender, Reid cheerfully stated, “We always said we’d have a boy first and we did. SO now we’re gonna have a girl.”
To remind fans that the gender has yet to be confirmed, Lochte chimed in, “I wanted a boy, girl, and then maybe talk about three [kids]. But if we get boy, boy, then [we’ll] try to go for a third one.”
Either way, we know the couple is thrilled beyond belief to be expanding their family. Congratulations to the family!
