Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – U.S. swimmer and “Dancing With The Stars” contestant, Ryan Lochte , and model Kayla Rae are now engaged and are ready to tie the knot.
The athlete is in the middle of shooting and practicing for “Dancing With The Stars” but managed to get away from the glitz and the glam of the T.V. show in order to propose to his woman. He took to Instagram to post a photo of him with Rae. He wrote alongside the snap, “Memories forever!!! # thelochtes #LA.”
As per the snap, the two were in the Malibu Canyon and she was wearing her new ring. The diamond ring had a huge stone that was visibly noticeable in the snap.
The engagement came as a surprise to many as he acted like he was single while he and the U.S. team were in Rio last summer to compete in the latest Olympics. However, after the explosive scandal he was part of regarding lying about being robbed at gunpoint, he has been seen with Rae.
It is unclear how long have then been together before the engagement but they were spotted in January 2016 in Los Angeles. They were seen at a night club.
In a recent interview, Lochte said that the Rio scandal did not destroy their relationship but only made their love stronger. He said, "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."
He also said that the first time that he met her, everything clicked. She also reportedly does not care about his fame and only cares about him being happy.
Lochte has not provided details about their wedding yet.
