Wa-hoo! Is it a happy, happy day for Tom Daley who has announced he is engagement after a two year romance with boyfriend Dustin


Diver, Olympic legend and all round good-guy Tom Daley has made us crack a big smile this morning as he has announced he’s engaged to 41-year-old partner Dustin Lance Black.

The Olympic diver, 21, took inspiration from Benedict Cumberbatch and subtly announced the exciting news by registering it in The Times. Nice try Daley, but nothing can escape our beady eyes!

The announcement, in the Births, Marriages and Death section, read: ‘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.’

Little is known at the mo as to where they got engaged, where they’re going to get hitched, if there is a ring and all that jazz but hey, that doesn’t matter at the mo does it? Let’s just let Tom and Dustin relish in the fun of getting engaged!


The couple have been dating for two years, after Tom bravely came out in a YouTube video in 2013.

In the intimate post from his bedroom, Tom speaks to the camera and said at the time: ‘In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. That someone is a guy […] I couldn’t be happier.’

Congratulations guys! We’re chuffed for you!
