Ryan Lochte is gettin’ hitched to his Playboy model girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid … poppin’ the question to the smokin’ hot blonde tonight in Malibu.
Lochte — who’s currently on “Dancing with the Stars” — proposed to Reid with a HUGE ROCK in the Malibu Canyon at sunset.
Ryan hit up Instagram to announce the good news … saying “Memories forever!!! #thelochtes #LA.”
FYI — Reid and Lochte have been dating since March … and started to get serious in April when R.L. introduced the model to his parents.
Well … at least he has time to plan the wedding!
