Ryan Lochte's newborn son has made his public debut.

The Olympic swimmer (and former University of Florida standout) and fiancee Kayla Rae Reid both shared photos of Caiden Zane Lochte on Instagram on Wednesday, six days after he was born.

The model writes that Caiden's delivery was difficult. She says the baby was born "after almost 26 hours of an unfortunate induced labor." She adds that Lochte was by her side the entire time and provided her with encouragement.

Lochte praised Reid last year for sticking by him during the fallout from last year's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where Lochte lied about a drunken encounter at a gas station.
