It’s official! 12-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte will be tying the knot with Kayla Rae Reid after he popped the question in Los Angeles on Sunday night. Lochte posted a picture with his fiancee to instagram, showing off the new diamond ring on her finger.
Since they first met on Tinder, Reid has been posting glimpses of her relationship with Lochte through social media over the past few months, sharing videos of the couple working out together with their fans. She even traveled to Rio to support Lochte, where he won an Olympic gold medal as part of Team USA’s 800 free relay.

Since Lochte left Rio, Reid has stuck by his side in light of the gas station scandal that resulted in a 10-month suspension handed to him by USA Swimming.
It appears life outside of the water is going well for Lochte, as he’s newly engaged and currently making national headlines as a contestant on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. Last week, Lochte advanced to the next round of DWTS with his partner Cheryl Burke. He’ll be taking the stage again tomorrow night to see if he’ll get to advance to week 6.
Even though he isn’t swimming, Lochte has still been spending some time around the pool. He recently took a break from a dance practice to help coach an elementary school swim team.
