Ryan Lochte is in the headlines for a decidedly more pleasant reason than his Rio debacle and ensuing Dancing With the Stars debacle. The swimmer proposed to Kayla Rae Reid in Malibu on Sunday, and she apparently said yes. He shared a photo on Instagram of the two of them kissing, Reid with a huge engagement ring on her finger, captioned "#thelochtes"; Reid followed up with her own kissing photo, in which she dubbed herself "speechless." TMZ reports Lochte has been dating the Playboy model since March, though People notes that for a while, he was denying they were together even while she was in Rio to support him at the Olympics.
