He swam his way into the record books earlier this week by beating Michael Phelps to the gold medal in the 400m individual medley, and in all the excitement Ryan's mum has said a little bit too much about her darling boy.
When asked about the 27-year-olds relationship status she admitted that her son only has time for 'one-night stands' because of his gruelling training schedule.
She also confirmed that her five-time gold medal winning son has dedicated his life to the pool. She said: "Everything he has done has been to the max. He's unique, loving, and he challenges himself all the time."
Earlier this month, Ryan revealed more about his bachelor lifestyle to Women's Health magazine. Here's our round-up of his answers for all the serious Lochte fans out there....
-His flirting technique of choice is 'eye contact'. He said: "Some guys keep staring, but I'll give a wink and come back later, because it keeps her thinking." Hmmm
- He has no idea what us girls are thinking and if he could have one superpower he'd be 'like Mel Gibson in What Women Want, where he reads women's minds'.
-He's obsessed with fashion and he hates dressing like everyone else. He think women look sexiest in one of his 'long-sleeve button-down shirts and that's all'.
-Sexy women have fit bodies like Carmen Electra...apparently.
-He sleeps naked and only has sex with the lights on.
