We’re shocked! Cheryl Burke recently revealed that her ‘Dancing With The Stars’ partner, Ryan Lochte, had butterflies before proposing to Kayla Rae Reid. And get this — he was even scared she’d say no! We have all the details, here.
Cheryl Burke, 32, opened up about her Dancing With The Stars partner, Ryan Lochte‘s, 32, proposal to Kayla Rae Reid, 25, saying that the Olympian was nervous the model would reject him! “I knew he’d been wanting to propose to her for a long time and he had this whole plan,” she told People on Oct. 17. “He was nervous she wouldn’t say yes, but I knew that wasn’t a possibility. She’s as crazy about him as he is about her. They are meant to be together. She’s his rock.” So sweet!
We totally agree with Cheryl, especially since the hunky swimmer has been so open about how much he wants to be involved with the wedding planning. “I want to help her pick out the flowers, help pick out the cake…like everything. I want to be right there with her,” he told E! recently. He also admitted that he can’t wait to be a dad. “We want kids and I mean, I’m ready to be a dad.” We’re so happy for the cute couple, and we think Ryan would make an amazing father!
And how can we forget how romantic his proposal was?! He popped the question in Los Angeles, atop the hills overlooking the entire city. In the sweet Instagram pic, Kayla smiled lovingly as she kissed her fiancee — and she made sure to show off her sparkling new ring. Seriously, so gorgeous!
