The Associated Press - Ryan Lochte's newborn son has made his public debut.
The Olympic swimmer and fiancee Kayla Rae Reid both shared photos of Caiden Zane Lochte on Instagram on Wednesday, six days after he was born.
My 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. 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 side the entire and encouraged me along the way 🙏🏼 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. ❤️ #love #family #CaidenZaneLochte
The model writes that Caiden's delivery was difficult. She says the baby was born "after almost 26 hours of an unfortunate induced labor." She adds that Lochte was by her side the entire time and provided her with encouragement.
Lochte praised Reid last year for sticking by him during the fallout from last year's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where Lochte lied about a drunken encounter at a gas station.
