In the first picture he posted, Caiden is lying on a bed in front of his adoring mom and dad, both wrapping their arms around him. "Words can't describe how happy I am," he captioned it.
In another, Reid is cradling Caiden in her arms as Lochte snuggles up to them. "Now this is what it's all about... family!!!!!!! #Mommy #daddy #CZL," he wrote.

Reid, a model, also shared a sweet baby photo with an even more heartfelt message. "My little pumpkin and that smirk," she wrote. "After almost 26 hours of an unfortunate induced labor, the greatest joy entered our lives... I Immediately placed him on my chest, he looked me in the eyes and just gazed. I burst into tears and I will cherish that unforgettable moment for the rest of my life. That moment, I felt so many sweet unexplainable feelings and an infinite amount of love. He is amazing in every single way and I'm so lucky to be his mommy."
The caption also included a love letter to her fiancé. "Ryan stayed by side the entire and encouraged me along the way," she wrote. "To see the look on his face when he saw Caiden was adorable and priceless, it was such an emotional moment for the both of us. I'm in awe every day and I love watching our little man grow daily.
