Dustin, 44, lost his brother Marcus to cancer in 2012. His mother, Roseanna Bisch passed away two years later, in 2014.

The filmmaker, who married Olympic diver Tom last year, has described her as “the greatest gift a boy could ever ask for”, adding, “I’ll try my best to be at least half as brilliant as you were every day.”

His 332k followers were touched by the moving image of Dustin by his mum’s grave.

The sports star said the arrival of his son was the “most magical moment in my life”.

He added: “The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable. Our precious son.”

He told The Guardian in July: “There’s nothing I’ve ever been more sure of in my life than having a family.”

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.
