GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has wed the mother of his 7-month-old son.

Lochte and former Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid were married by a judge Tuesday in Gainesville, Florida, where Lochte attended college. Their son, Caiden, was born last June.

According to the marriage license obtained by TMZ Sports, Lochte’s father, Steven, was a witness.

Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medalist, and Reid appear to be holding off on a honeymoon.

He is scheduled to be in Austin, Texas, on Saturday to sign autographs at a swim meet, while Reid tweeted Thursday that she was on her way back to their California home with Caiden.

The couple got engaged in October 2016, not long after Lochte created an international scandal when he falsely claimed that he and three other U.S. swimmers had been robbed at gunpoint while in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics. He was suspended for 10 months by USA Swimming.
