God Help Us All—Ryan Lochte Is Going To Be A Dad

The Olympic gold medallist announced his big news in a post on Instagram

He's had a rollercoaster year, but it appears that Ryan Lochte's 2016 is ending on a high—for him if not for humanity.

The 32-year old, who won a gold medal in the 4 x 200 freestyle relay at the Summer Olympic games in August, announced on Instagram that he and his fiancee Kayla Ray Reid are expecting their first child together. 

And while the news of his procreation may not have everyone reaching for the Champagne, "The Lochtenator" was certainly thrilled.

The swimmer posted a picture of him kissing Reid's belly underwater on his Instagram account

Lochte's success in Rio de Janeiro was marred by reports that he and fellow USA swim team members had vandalized a gas station and lied about being held up a gunpoint—something which the athlete kind-of-sort-of-half apologized for in subsequent interviews. He was later stripped of several sponsorship deals. 

Most recently, Lochte performed on the latest season of Dancing with the Stars this fall, finishing in 7th place. 

The athlete follows in the footsteps (flippers?) of his teammate, Michael Phelps, who became a father for the first time this year to baby Boomer, who was seen at the games. 

Here's hoping baby Lochte inherits his father's athleticism...and not his decision-making abilities...
