Gay Dad Tom Daley Working on BBC Documentary About Surrogacy

Tom Daley announced recently that he has teamed up with the BBC to bring a documentary about his experiences with surrogacy to the small screen. The Olympic diver, along with husband Dustin Lance Black, welcomed a baby boy to their family via surrogacy this past summer.

Daley hopes to use the opportunity to provide an in-depth look into a typical surrogacy journey, from the medical requirements to the legal and financial aspects that such arrangements require.

The documentary will largely focus on the use of surrogacy in the U.K., according to Deadline, where the practice is legal but highly regulated. But Daley will also travel to California, where rules are much more permissive, and to countries where the practice is still illegal.

The documentary is set to debut in 2019. We'll be sure to tune in, and keep you posted!
