Tom Daley’s husband undergoing surgery after mishap with baby son

Who knew dad dancing could be so dangerous?!

Tom Daley's husband Dustin Lance Black has revealed "dad dancing" with his baby son has left him needing surgery.

The screenwriter, 44, shared a couple of throwback snaps to Instagram on Thursday -  one showing him cradling Robbie and another showing him gazing lovingly at his son.

Dustin explained that a few weeks ago, he snapped his anterior cruciate ligament - one of the key ligaments that help stabilize the knee joint - while dancing with his little boy.

A few weeks back I snapped my ACL dad dancing. Surgery tomorrow.

He captioned the post: "TBT to month two. Sadly our #DadDance time must take a pause. A few weeks back I snapped my ACL dad dancing. Surgery tomorrow. Scary!

"Send good vibes for a quick recovery. I’m not done spinning and dipping our baby boy!"

Fans were quick to comment on the post to send their well-wishes to Dustin and wish him good luck ahead of his surgery.

One person said: "Wow! Sending you good healing energy and a speedy recovery!" while another wrote: "Good luck with surgery! Who knew dad dancing could be that dangerous."

On Friday, Tom took to his Instagram Stories to share a snap of Dustin and Robbie to wish him luck ahead of his surgery.

He wrote: "Wishing this one a quick recovery. (He snapped his ACL and has surgery today)."

The Olympic diver then asked his fans how they thought Dustin had injured himself - dad dancing or working out.

The couple became parents for the first time in June after welcoming their son, Robbie, via a surrogate.

They chose to name their son after Tom's late dad Robert, who passed away in 2011 of a brain tumour.

Tom said the arrival of his son was the "most magical moment in my life".

He added at the time: "The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable. Our precious son."

Tom told The Guardian in July that he'd been preparing for fatherhood since he was a teenager.

But he did fear coming out meant he couldn't have a family.

He added: "One of the things I was so mortified about, so upset about, when I came out, was that I'd never be able to have a family. But then obviously I did more research.

"Because there's something so special about passing on what my parents have taught me to children of my own."
