Tom, who won a bronze medal in the 10m men’s diving at London 2012, became engaged to Dustin in October 2015.

They married at Bovey Castle Hotel in Devon last year.

At the time, Tom said: “On 6th May 2017, I married the love of my life, @dlanceblack.

“We shared the day with 120 of our closest friends and family, from Texarkana to Plymouth!

“Thank you to everyone who made this weekend the most special weekend of our lives.”

Dustin won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 2009 for the movie Milk, based on the life of gay rights activist Harvey Milk.

Tom had spoken in 2016 of his desire to start a family with Dustin.

He said it was a question of “when, not if” and would likely to happen when he retires from professional diving.

In an interview with The Sun, he said: “It’s not a question of ‘if’, just ‘when’. I’ve always said I’ll keep diving as long as my body lets me, but the beauty of being an athlete is you retire young and you’ve got your whole life ahead of you.

“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 to us. It’s what we want.”

“We’ve been together now almost five years and I’m still discovering new things about him and I feel really lucky about that,” he said.

“There’s a constant renewal to our relationship and I’ve never experienced anything like it. It’s really exciting.”

Congratulations, guys!
