London (AFP) – Britain’s three-time diving world champion Tom Daley has become a father for the first time as he and American husband Dustin Lance Black welcomed into the world Robert Ray.
Daley — who also has two Olympic bronze medals to his credit — made the announcement in Saturday’s edition of The Times that he and screenwriter Black, who he married in May 2017, had become parents.
“BLACK-DALEY On 27th June 2018 to Thomas Robert Daley and Dustin Lance Black, a son, Robert Ray,” read the announcement.
Daley — who also has four gold medals from both the European Championships and Commonwealth Games — also posted a photograph of his son’s feet on Instagram.
“Welcome to the world our precious little Robbie Ray Black-Daley,” wrote Daley.
“The most magical moment of my life. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable. Our precious son.”
