Ryan Lochte and fiancée Kayla Rae Reid are parents! The Olympian, who shared the most fitting (and adorable) baby announcement back in December, welcomed his son on Thursday, and the new parents have a name all picked out an adorable name: Caiden Zane.

"Never seen a miracle happen before," Lochte shared in a typed note on Instagram. "Until this morning at 5:46 a.m. when Caiden Zane Lochte was born. 7 lbs 14 oz, 22 inches. Can't stop crying from tears of joy. Dreams come true!" How sweet is that? He also went on to add a caption, writing "Caiden Zane Lochte. I'm a daddy," below the image. It looks like the gold-medal winning swimmer is going to be great at something else, too-fatherhood!

"The only thing I can say is that I just keep staring at him with a smile and tears running down my face," Lochte told ET on Thursday. "It's truly a dream come true. He's the greatest gift in the world." The couple got engaged last October, and their original baby announcement is every bit as sweet as Lochte's proud papa status this week. "My Christmas gift came early this year," Lochte wrote under an underwater photo of himself kissing Reid's belly. "Best news I've ever received."

It sounds like he's still taking that statement pretty seriously. Congratulations to the brand-new parents! We can't wait to see Lochte's first Instagram post starring their new little bundle of joy-and find out when the couple's planning their wedding day. They're going to have the cutest ring bearer!
