Tom Daley Gets Engaged!

Congratulations to Olympic diver Tom Daley and long term partner Dustin Lance Black who have announced their engagement!

Taking inspiration from actor Benedict Cumberbatch, the news broke in The Times’ Announcements page.

It read: “Mr T.R Daley and Mr D.L Black. 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”.

The couple have been together for two years, shortly after Tom, 21, bravely came out in a YouTube video. In his video, Tom stated that “Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy.”


Lance, who is twenty years his senior, is a Hollywood screenwriter who won an Academy Award for his script for 2008 film Milk.

We at CelebMix would like to congratulate the pair and wish them a very happy future together!
