Olympian Tom Daley Talks About his Plans for Fatherhood

According to Gay Star News, 22-year-old British diving icon Tom Daley has revealed his medium-term plans to start a family once the Rio Games are over. Speaking to The Sun, Daley said, "Once I've finished with diving there are going to be other avenues I'd like to explore. Family has always been a massive thing."

He and his partner, film-maker Dustin Lance Black, plan to ‘tie the knot’ next year. And his plans for fatherhood...

“It’s not a question of ‘if’, just ‘when’.”


So happy for you. So proud. #TeamGB #TeamDaley #Diving #Rio2016 ❤️❤️❤️

Jamie Tabberer’s article also referred to Tom and Dustin’s age gap but Tom responded that in many ways he was the ‘adult’, doing “all the cooking, organizing and pay(ing) the bills.”

For now Tom Daley will be concentrating on the Rio Olympics and after success with a bronze in the 10m Synchronized with Dan Goodfellow, he will be preparing for his individual event.
