Ryan Lochte is going to be a dad!

The Olympian has jumped in the pool to announce that he and fiancee Kayla Rae Reid are expecting a baby.

The Olympic swimmer and the former Playboy model shared pictures on Instagram of Lochte under water and kissing Reid's tiny baby bump.

He wrote that his "Christmas gift came early this year."

It has been a notable year for Lochte. He was caught in a fib about a drunken encounter during the Rio Olympics in August. He was later harassed by protesters on stage while competing on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." Lochte and Reid announced their engagement in October.
