Ryan Lochte Opens Up About Wedding Planning and Starting a Family

The Olympic swimmer added that he's "ready to be a dad."

"That's one of the things that I wanted to do because this is not just her wedding, even though everyone always says it's the woman's wedding, but it's mine too and we're a couple now," he told E! News.

"I wanted to be involved as much as possible," Lochte, 32, continued. "I want to help her pick out the flowers, help pick out the cake ... like everything. I want to be right there with her."

"She's going to be choreographing the whole thing," Lochte said.

Burke, 32, who was by his side for the interview replied: "Well, that's going to cost you, buddy!"

Not only is Lochte thinking about his wedding, but also starting his family.

"Before I even got engaged, I wanted a family of my own," he said. "I wanted to find the right one first and then have kids with her.

"Now that I've found the right one, that's something we definitely talk about," Lochte added. "We want kids and I mean, I'm ready to be a dad."
