Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have become dads for a second time, announcing the birth of son Phoenix.

The Olympian and his filmmaker hubby shared the first images of the newborn with his brother Robbie on Instagram.

“Our family has grown in the last week, we welcomed Phoenix to the world on 28/03/23 and he’s just perfect,” Tom wrote.

“Robbie is loving being a BIG BRO!”

In a separate post, Dustin wrote, “And then there were four. Our second son, Phoenix Rose Black-Daley, arrived at 3:34pm on March 28, 2023.”

Baby Phoenix’s big brother Robert “Robbie” Ray is four and a half years old. The couple welcomed Robbie with the help of a surrogate in June 2018.

At the time, Tom shared that his first son’s birth was “the most magical moment of my life. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable.”

After Phoenix was born, the Olympian and filmmaker dropped the news in a good old-fashioned birth notice in the UK’s Times newspaper.

“BLACK-DALEY on 28th March to Thomas Robert Daley and Dustin Lance Black, a son, Phoenix Rose,” the short statement read.

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black celebrate 10 year anniversary

Two weeks ago, Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black celebrated a decade together.

Both men posted a collection of photos from the past ten years to Instagram.

Tom wrote, “Who would have thought that a random dinner 10 years ago today would turn into what we are today?”

Dustin also added in his own post, “10 YEARS AGO TODAY … I met my best friend and the great love of my life at a random dinner in Los Angeles that I had no business being at (I had a script due the next day!).

“I worried I was in real (good) trouble from the first moment we spoke, I was right.

“Thank you Tom for all of your love, patience, and encouragement, for building our family together, and for all of the many adventures past and yet to come.”
