American swimmer Ryan Lochte said being a father has been his biggest achievement so far.

In a recent interview on American TV show Inside Edition, the Olympic gold medallist swimmer said: "Being a dad is 10 times better. I could win 80 million gold medals and it won't compare."

Lochte and fiancee Kayla Rae Reid welcomed baby boy Caiden on June 8 after 26 hours of labour.

"Oh my gosh, having a baby is so much work. It [labour] felt like you're in this race with no finish line," said Reid. When asked what's next for the new parents, Lochte added: "Baby No. 2!"
