Ryan Lochte is getting married! The swimmer proposed to his stunning model girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid on Oct. 9, and the world is dying to know more about the lucky girl who Ryan just made his fiancee. Get to know Kayla right here!
1. She’s been with Ryan for nine months.
The pair met at a Hollywood nightclub back in January, and Ryan, 32, admitted to USA Today that it was love at first sight with Kayla. They even held hands upon meeting, and neither of them wanted to let go! Although they didn’t spend the rest of that night together, they kept in contact via Instagram and went on a date three days later…and the rest is history!
2. She’s a former Playboy model.
Kayla, 25, was Miss July for the magazine in 2015. She seemingly hasn’t done any modeling for Playboy since, but continues to model for various companies and brands on her Instagram.
3. Her brother’s name is also Ryan.
What a coincidence, huh? Except Kayla’s bro and her man look nothing alike — her brother is a redhead and Ryan is definitely not!
4. She supported Ryan (Lochte) through his Rio scandal.
Although Kayla wasn’t with Ryan at the time of his gas station ordeal, she did travel to Rio with her man to cheer him on as he took home more medals. And Kayla apparently continued her support after Ryan was in some major trouble with authorities for lying about being robbed at the gas station! In fact, Ryan told USA Today that the way she still loved him through the whole situation made him realize that she was “the one.” Aww!
5. She already lives with Ryan.
It’s unclear exactly when Ryan and Kayla moved in with each other, but he admitted after an episode of Dancing With The Stars in September that they were living together. They were already getting a taste of the married life, and now that they’re engaged, that’s becoming a real thing!
