Tom Daley is set to become a dad with husband Dustin Lance Black.
The 23-year-old announced his happy news on Valentine’s Day, sharing a picture of their baby scan with their online fans.
Tom and Dustin have been together since 2013, with Tom confirming their romance in a YouTube video in which he also came out as gay.
He released the video on 2 December 2013, in which he announced he had been in a relationship with a man since the start of the year, later confirming the man to be Dustin Lance.
‘I’ve never been happier,’ he said. ‘I’d never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly, I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can’t get him out of my head all the time.’
Two years later, the couple were engaged, tying the knot in May 2017 at Bovey Castle in Devon.
Tom has been open about their relationship woes in the past, telling Attitude magazine last year: ‘Our relationship is far from perfect. We have really tough times and struggles.
‘For example we went long distance for a very, very, long time: he was in LA, I was living in London. We would spend sometimes five weeks apart.
‘And it’s something that was really, really tough and we’ve had to make massive and dramatic changes in our lives in order to be able to live together and see each other all the time. So it’s not all plain sailing.’
Tom was also accused of having an 18-month fling with model Edward Williams behind Black’s back in February last year, but this rumour was put well and truly behind them when they married months later.
Daley is a British diver, specialising in the 10-metre platform events.
He is a double world champion diver in the event; winning the FINA World Championionship in 2009 at the age of 15, and again in 2017. He won the bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics.
Tom, who started diving at the age of seven, also competes in sychnosined swimming.
