Tom Daley has revealed a hidden secret – he had the engagement ring hidden in his undies when he popped the question to boyfriend Dustin Lance Black last October.
Speaking to Out, the Olympian said he was naked except for his underwear when he proposed.
“I had the ring box in my underwear, and when he came out of the bathroom, I just went down on my knee and proposed,” Daley said.
“Then he ran off to the bathroom to get his rings, and he had this whole speech prepared, but he’s a writer so his was quite extravagant.
“But looking back, all I can remember is being completely overwhelmed, like, ‘Oh my God, we’re now engaged. Who do we have to call?’ So I called my mom, and he called his step-dad.”
Black also opened up about the moment they met and the whirlwind romance that followed.
“Tom had just won an award at some Nickelodeon TV show, and they were planning to celebrate, and I said, ‘I’ve got to go home; I have a script to write’,” he said.
“And Tom took my phone, and he typed his number in with a winky face.”
The couple are yet to set a wedding date – they are waiting until after Daley’s appearance in the Olympic Games in Rio in August to plan the big day.
