Ryan Lochte is headed to the altar! The swimmer and ‘DWTS’ star revealed that he proposed to Kayla Reid on Oct. 9 (sorry ladies!), and they both showed off the huge sparkler on Instagram. See their engagement pic and the ring right here!
Ryan seemingly popped the question in the hills of Los Angeles at sunset, as he and Kayla, 25, shared a kiss with a pink and purple sky and the ocean as the backdrop of their announcement pic. It looks like it was date night for the pair, as they were both dressed super nicely for the occasion, with Ryan in a navy suit and Kayla in a pretty emerald dress. How romantic, huh?!
“Memories forever!!! #thelochtes#LA,” Ryan captioned his pic, clearly excited to be making Kayla Mrs. Lochte. The 32-year-old Olympic swimmer must have made the proposal super special, because Kayla said she was “absolutely speechless” in her post after they got engaged. “So in love with YOU,” she wrote. These two are just too cute!
Although Kayla and Ryan have only been together for several months, Ryan admitted just days before proposing that Kayla is “the one.” He told USA Today that he realized he wanted to marry her after she stuck by his side during his Rio gas station scandal. The DWTS Season 23 star even revealed that it was basically love at first sight when they first met at a Hollywood nightclub back in January!
“From the very first time I met her, everything has like clicked,” Lochte told the outlet. “That’s why I know I can propose to her because everything that’s happened and she’s been keeping me so positive. She doesn’t care about my fame. She doesn’t care about anything. All she cares about is me being happy.”
Aww! Judging by both of their lovey-dovey posts about their engagement, Ryan and Kayla are beyond happy to be getting married. Congrats, you two!
