Ryan Lochte's dating life might be prompting more headlines than his medal count (an impressive two gold medals, two silvers and a bronze), and Access Hollywood's Billy Bush chatted with the Olympic star in London where he dished on his love life.

"I love ladies, yeah, of course," Ryan, who celebrates his 28th birthday on Friday, said when asked about his reputation as a ladies' man.

He might be single now, but Ryan is looking ahead to a life with a wife and children.

"Now that the games are all said and done, I definitely want to get married and have kids and start a family of my own," he said. "Not right this second."

So what kind of woman catches the swimmer's eye?

"They have to be able to make me happy. Make me happy, keep a smile on my face and I got to be able to trust them," he explained. "That's who I'm going to settle down with and start a family with."

Ryan also cleared up comments his mom made on Thursday, where she said he's been known to have "one-night stands."

"She meant that I go on dates... not... one night stands, not that," he told Billy. "I've been in long-term commitment relationships before. And, you know what? I really wanted to give these four years to push... I wasn't really committed into a relationship. I just kind of went on dates."

And the Olympian couldn't be prouder of the commitment he made.

"I'm at the Olympics. I'm representing my country. That's something I'm really proud of," he told Billy. "And I'm coming home with five Olympic medals, so I'm thrilled about that."
