The Olympic swimmer told CBS News on Wednesday (Jan. 18, 2017) that he’s currently expecting a son with fiancée Kayla Rae Reid.

“We’re having a boy,” he said, adding that he’s very excited when he found out he was going to have a son. “Yes, yes I was, because I always wanted more than one kid and I definitely wanted a boy first so if we have a girl, the boy will be the big brother and take care of his sister so it’s working out perfectly.”

“I’m definitely going to be a loving dad. I’m going to spoil my child with so much love and that’s where the baby’s going to get spoiled,” he shared. “I know what to do and what not to do from talking to other parents and my own parents so I’m excited to change diapers, to dress up my kid in the same outfits as me and this is going to be so much fun. It’s going to be awesome.”

According to Lochte, he found out about Reid’s pregnancy when was competing on Dancing with the Stars. Though the 32-year-old has only been with Reid, 25, for only a year, he believes the Playboy Playmate is the one for him.

“I found something in Kayla that I couldn’t find in anyone else. We had a special connection and I was like, ‘This is it. This is who I’m going to give my entire heart to, is Kayla.’ It’s been amazing,” he said of their relationship.

As previously reported, Lochte and Reid got engaged last October following a mountaintop proposal.

“They always say like the wedding’s for the woman but you know, for me, I want to be a part of it. I want to help pick out the cake, pick out the flowers, settings, everything, so I want to be a big part of it,” Lochte said of the upcoming nuptials. “Our biggest focus is bringing this child into this world. We’re going to keep our focus on that and afterward we’ll set a date and time on getting married, but I think we’re looking at October.”
