Ryan Lochte Reveals He Wants To Find A Girlfriend And 'Settle Down'

Star wants to 'share his heart'

Olympic swimming champion Ryan Lochte has revealed that he's on the hunt for a girlfriend because he's keen to "settle down".

The 28-year-old became an overnight heartthrob following his appearance at the 2012 Olympics, bringing home a collection of medals and rivalling Michael Phelps, but the star has shrugged off the ladies' man label by claiming that he wants to 'share his heart'.

Ahead of the premiere of his new TV show, 'What Would Ryan Lochte Do?', Ryan spoke to Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Thursday’s Access Hollywood Live about his love life.

"I do wanna settle down. I wanna share my heart with someone for the rest of my life,” he said.

But if you want to be Mrs Lochte, you better be funny or learn how to crack jokes fast!

 “The quickest way to my heart… is to make me laugh, and keep me smiling,” the eleven-time Olympic medalist revealed.

The swimmer was more recently linked to one of Simon Cowell's former flames - Carmen Electra.

"She is a good kisser,” he smiled, before adding: “I don’t kiss and tell.”

In a bid to become the male equivalent of Kim Kardashian, Ryan's new show is set to premiere later this month on E!.

It will show his training, as well as his family and friends - as well as his search for a girlfriend.

Of his family, who he is close to, Ryan said: “Most of them are crazier than me.”
