Ryan Lochte is one excited new dad!
The Olympic gold medalist and his fiancée, Kayla Rae Reid, took to Instagram on Wednesday to introduce their adorable baby boy, Caiden Zane, to the world.
Lochte posted a sweet black-and-white snapshot showing the happy couple laying in bed with their newborn son, whom they welcomed last Thursday.
"Now this is what it's all about..... family!!!!!!!" the 32-year-old swimmer and former Dancing With the Stars contestant captioned the heartwarming pic.

Reid shared a cute smiling photo of the 6-day-old bundle of joy laying in a baby rocker, and the new mom marveled at her "little pumpkin and that smirk."
"After almost 26 hours of an unfortunate induced labor the greatest joy entered our lives. Caiden Zane Lochte born 6-8-17. 7lbs and 14oz of pure bliss. I Immediately placed him on my chest, he looked me in the eyes and just gazed," Reid recalled. "I burst into tears and I will cherish that unforgettable moment for the rest of my life. That moment, I felt so many sweet unexplainable feelings and an infinite amount of love. He is amazing in every single way and I'm so lucky to be his mommy."

"Ryan stayed by [my] side the entire and encouraged me along the way," she continued. "To see the look on his face when he saw Caiden was adorable and priceless, it was such an emotional moment for the both of us. I'm in awe every day and I love watching our little man grow daily. His face melts my heart."
These two precious shots are a good start for the Lochte-Reid family photo album, but they have a lot of picture-snapping to do to match the Olympic swimmer's former teammate Michael Phelps. The 23-time gold medal winner's adorable baby boy, Boomer, has been an Instagram star since the day he was born.
