32-year-old disgraced Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is officially off the market!
Ryan proposed to his 25-year-old Playboy Playmate girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid yesterday and the excited couple shared photos on Instagram. According to E!, Ryan had escaped in the middle of his Dancing With the Stars rehearsals to pull off the special proposal.
Ryan and Kayla met at a Los Angeles nightclub January 22, 2016, and started dating three days later. People thought Ryan’s Olympics scandal would hurt their relationship, but sources told E! it only
strengthened the pair’s bond.
Ryan recently told USA TODAY Sports:
“My family says, ‘Don’t you think it’s a little too soon?’ I’m like, ‘Can you put a time on love? Can you?'”
“When I realized this was ‘the one’ was when she stuck behind me through this. She still loves me and she’s still right there with me.”
“From the very first time I met her, everything has like clicked. “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.”
Congratulations to them.
