Congratulations to Olympian Ryan Lochte and his fiancée, Kayla Rae Reid – the couple welcomed their first child together, a baby boy.
The couple’s rep confirmed the happy baby news to Us Weekly, who reported that their son was born at 5:46 a.m. on Thursday morning.
Ryan updated his Instagram with details about the baby’s weight, measurement, and what we were dying to know – the name – since he told Us Weekly earlier this year that they planned on a “unique” name for their child.
Welcome to the world Caiden Zane Lochte! Caiden is of American origin, meaning “fighter.”
The swimmer shared: “Never seen a miracle happen before. Until this morning at 5:46 a.m. when CAIDEN ZANE LOCHTE was born. 7lbs 14oz, 22 inches. can’t stop crying from tears of joy. Dream come true!”
Ryan and Kayla were engaged in October and the couple announced that she was pregnant in December.
