Ryan Lochte is sending hearts aflutter by revealing his secret celebrity crushes — and one of those lucky ladies has a message for the handsome Olympic swimmer.

“I’m flattered that Ryan Lochte has a crush on me,” Carmen Electra confessed to Celebuzz. “He’s so cute.”

Will Lochte ever get his chance with the brunette bombshell?

Could be. Said Electra: “I am sure our paths will cross soon.”

Still, the gold medalist has fierce competition: 40-year-old Electra has been engaged to guitarist Rob Patterson since 2008.

The model/actress’ response comes just after Lochte, 28, revealed his longtime adoration of her.

“Growing up I’ve always looked at Carmen Electra,” he said during an interview on The Daily Buzz.

She’s not the only lady Lochte is eyeing — when Piers Morgan  asked who he’d choose to spend his life with on a deserted island, Lochte revealed that he’d like to take the place of another famous Ryan.

“I do still have a big crush on Blake Lively… she’s gorgeous,” he said of the Gossip Girl star, who married actor Ryan Reynolds on Sept. 9.

Still, Lochte is mindful of The Green Lantern star.  “I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes,” he confessed.
