The couple posed with Caiden Zane for Us Weekly, and by the looks of it, the Olympic swimmer couldn't be any happier. "As soon as I saw the head pop out, I immediately bawled my eyes out," Lochte said. His 25-year-old wife added, "We're on cloud nine. It's a dream come true. I'm still in shock! I can't believe we made a baby."
Upon the birth of their son, Lochte took to Instagram to share the news, writing, "Never seen a miracle happen before. Until this morning at 5:46am when CAIDEN ZANE LOCHTE was born." Now, the part-Cuban dad is looking forward to fatherhood more than he has ever looked forward to a big race. "I'm excited to be able to change him and dress him up," he said. "I'm going to be like a big kid and play with him nonstop."
Reid noticed, too, that Caiden has super big feet, which can only make us wonder: Do we have another Olympic swimmer on our hands? Maybe, but only if by his own choice. "I want him to be very active, but I want him to choose what he wants to do," Lochte explained. "Whatever he does, I want him to go all in. I don't want him to half-ass anything."
