The couple, according to an account in USA Today, met in January at a nightclub in Los Angeles.

In an interview with USA Today, the embattled swimmer said that Reid’s support during the Olympics controversy was the moment that he realized that she was, as he put it, “the one.”

“From the very first time I met her, everything has like clicked,” Lochte said. “That’s why I know I can propose to her because everything that’s happened and she’s been keeping me so positive.”
