Before Kayla Rae Reid shot to the spotlight as Ryan Lochte's fiancée, she was Playboy's Miss July back in 2015.
In a new profile for the New York Post, the 25-year-old opened up about the one thing she's not "proud" of — a botched boob job — and her relationship with the controversial swimmer.
Before meeting the 32-year-old, the aspiring model/actress admits she had just removed her double-D breasts featured in the nude centerfold spread:
"The one thing I wasn't proud of was that I had a bad boob job. They were just way too big for my body. They were completely Playboy, rock-hard [breasts]. I wanted small, kind of saggy, pretty [breasts]."
Unhappy with the results, her plastic surgeon gave her smaller implants, at no cost, to fix the disproportionate outcome.

Shortly after the correction, Miz Reid met the Olympian on Tinder (yes, you read that correctly) — and after some online flirting, the two met in person at El Lay's Bootsy Bellows nightclub in January 2016.
"We physically ran into each other. We grabbed each other's hands and were looking into each other's eyes. We clicked. I had always heard he was a player and a partier. I always said I would never date an athlete. When I met him, he was the complete opposite of everything I thought he was."
Despite immediately hitting it off, the lovebirds kept their relationship under wraps during Lochte's time in Rio — you know, when he kept telling everyone he was single:
"I was in Rio the whole time. We didn't want people to know I was there, and I didn't want to be a distraction. I agreed to everything. I was like, ‘[Our relationship is] fresh and nobody needs to know.' The people that truly know us knew we were sickly [sic] in love."
Since then, though, everything has moved super fast following Ryan's fake robbery scandal:
"I was just concerned . . . I wanted to be by his side. We've all peed in bushes. We all can say, ‘I made a mistake while intoxicated.' I've tried to remind him, ‘You don't get to live like a normal person. Every mistake you make . . . you live under a microscope.' But it's done now and it's something he has to overcome."
And now, even though the bride-to-be admittedly never pictured herself married to anyone, she's looking forward to her life with the athlete:
"He's so romantic. He leaves me love letters all around the house. He is a softie. He's sensitive and thoughtful."
"He wants kids so badly. That is what made us connect. He said his one goal in life was to be a great dad."
Well that's sweet to hear!
Good luck, you two!
