Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have hosted a baby shower as they prepare to become first-time dads.

Tom and his husband Dustin are preparing to welcome their first child via surrogate and both posted photos of the bash to Instagram to share their excitement.

The couple both wore sashes emblazoned with the words “Daddy to be” and gold glasses with “Oh baby!” on them.

Dustin also shared a picture of the couple standing by the food table, and a video the couple posted showed Dustin holding two sparklers and dancing around the room.

The couple announced their baby news on social media on Valentine’s Day, and Tom later revealed they are having a boy with the help of a surrogatem mother.

Daley was recently in Australia to compete at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and told the BBC his upcoming fatherhood was the reason he spoke out against anti-gay laws that remain in Commonwealth countries.

“You want your child to grow up having an equal opportunity as everyone else that is born, whether they’re gay, straight, male, female, whatever religion you are, whatever ethnicity you are,” he said.

“I think that everyone should have the equal opportunity to do the best you can.

“[Fatherhood] changes your perspective on so many different levels. I was on the way home from Australia and there was turbulence, and normally I’m completely fine but I thought ‘I’ve got a little child to look after, I can’t die!’

“The way you think about the world changes so dramatically.

“I went for lunch with my husband and I was sitting there with a gold medal at the Commonwealth games and I thought how lucky am I to be sitting with my husband after winning a competition and not being worried about any ramifications or someone being able to throw me in prison.

“Thirty-six of the completing nations criminalise LGBT people so if I was born in a different country I wouldn’t be able to compete truly as I am.”
