Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have announced they are expecting a baby.
The Olympic diving champion, 23, and his filmmaker husband, 43, confirmed the happy news with Valentine’s Day Instagram photos.
Tom shared a snap of the couple cosying up for the camera while holding an ultrasound scan, before Dustin shared a similar photo along with the caption: “A very happy #ValentinesDay from ours to yours.”
A spokesperson for Daley confirmed to NBC News that “Tom and Dustin are thrilled to share that they are expecting their first child in 2018”.
The pair married last year near Daley’s hometown of Plymouth, Devon.
Daley’s mum, Debbie told the BBC she was “delighted” by the news. His father, Robert, died from brain cancer in 2011, just a year before Daley was set to compete in the London Olympic Games.
The ultrasound picture suggests the couple are using a surrogate mother to become parents, rather than adopting.
Speaking to The Mirror last year, Daley revealed he was getting broody.
“I’ve always been a family person so I’ve always wanted kids, and I know Lance does, too.
“I don’t know how many – an army of kids, a whole diving team. We’re both lucky to have supportive families and we want to share that with our own children.”
