— -- Ryan Lochte and Kayla Rae Reid are expecting a baby.

The couple made the announcement on social media Wednesday, sharing photos of Lochte kissing Reid's stomach.

"Just when you think you have it all figured out, life always surprises you with blessings when you least expect it," Reid wrote "So excited to share this news with all of you! #weareprego #omg #2017"

Added Lochte: "My Christmas gift came early this year, can't wait for next year! Best news I've ever received #CLOUD9 #excited #family #love #2017"

Lochte, 32, and Reid, 25, were first linked earlier this year and announced their engagement this past October. The Olympic swimmer told USA Today that her support during his ordeal in Rio at the 2016 Olympic Games made him realize that he was ready for a bigger commitment.

“My family says, ‘Don’t you think it’s a little too soon?’ I’m like, 'Can you put a time on love? Can you?'” he told the newspaper. “When I realized this was ‘the one’ was when she stuck behind me through this.’’

The swimmer admitted to "overexaggerating" his claim that he was robbed in Rio. He was suspended for 10 months by the United States Olympic Committee and USA Swimming.

This will be the first child for both.
