Tom Daley Engaged To Long-Term Boyfriend Dustin Lance Black
British Olympic diver Tom Daley is engaged to his screenwriter boyfriend Dustin Lance Black after two years of dating.
“My life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,” Daley gushed when he came out of the closet in 2013. “That someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit,” he continued, noting, “I still fancy girls.”
A close friend told ‘US Weekly’ that the 20-year age gap between Daley and Black wasn’t something that bothered him at all. “Tom told friends he ‘doesn’t care what people think,’” the insider revealed. And it looks like this relationship was meant to be! Because the couple are now engaged to be married, and proudly announced their exciting news by placing an article in the Times of London’s Births, Marriages and Deaths section.
The announcement was titled, “Mr T.R. Daley and Mr D.L. Black,” and continued, “The engagement is announced between Tom, son of Robert and Debra Daley of Plymouth, and Lance, son of Jeff Bisch of Philadelphia and Anne Bisch of Lake Providence.”
Daley’s mother Debbie praised the ‘extremely exciting’ news, saying: “The whole family is extremely excited and looking forward to the big day.
“They are going to wait until after the Olympic Games in Rio before they decide on the date of the wedding and where they want to marry.
She added: “At the moment he is training in Stratford and focusing on competitions to prepare for Rio at the start of August. Training has always come first for him. Once Rio is out of the way, they will properly plan the wedding.”
Congratulations, Tom and Dustin!
