The 32-year-old athlete and Reid, 25, welcomed their baby boy to the world less than a week ago, on June 8.

The new photo appears in an upcoming issue of US Weekly, in which the couple opens up about the birth.

"As soon as I saw the head pop out, I immediately bawled my eyes out," he told the magazine.

And he's definitely ready to take on fatherhood.

Lochte had previously told TODAY that he was eager to be a dad.

"I definitely want a family of my own," he said in 2016. "And I love kids, so there's no doubt in my mind that's the route I want to take."

Congratulations to the beautiful family!
