Ryan Lochte and his fiancé Kayla Rae Reid are expecting their first baby together.
The controversial US swimmer posted some pictures on Twitter to announce the news, tweeting: My “Christmas gift came early this year, can’t wait for next year!”
“Best news I’ve ever received #CLOUD9 #excited #family #love #2017 (sic)”
Kayla also tweeted: “Just when you think you think you have it all figured out, life always surprises you with blessings when least expect it.”
“So excited to share this news with all of you! #weareprego #omg #2017 (sic)”
The happy couple met in January this year and got engaged in October shortly after Lochte returned home after a disgraceful Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
We reported at the time how he faked a robbery at a gas station in the notoriously crime-ridden Brazilian city.
After that, he lost a bunch of sponsorship deals, but now things seem to be looking up for the swimmer.
