Through the wonders of Instagram and Twitter, Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley have pretty much confirmed everyone’s suspicions – the two are a happy couple.


The 39 year-old Oscar winning screenwriter has been seen in various compromising situations with the Olympic diver (getting coffee, half naked in a hot tub for instance) but neither of the two was prepared to go public with the romance – until now.

After a night out at G-A-Y to celebrate the return of Tom Daley’s reality show ‘Splash!’, Dustin tweeted a picture of a fan-made cake with I Love Tom written on it. He included the message, “I concur. @tomdaley1994 fans are the SWEETEST #forgetthediet.” Shortly after, Tom Daley posted a picture on Instagram of himself and Dustin at a London restaurant and tweeted, “#splash celebrations 🙂 Beef Wellington…yes please!!!”.

Tom Daley, 19, confirmed that he had been in a relationship with a man since spring 2013 in his now famous coming out Youtube video, but refused to name the mystery lothario.  In an interview with Jonathan Ross shortly after the video was posted, he said, ”

“I’d never felt like anything like it before. We were at a party, and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night. I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first. At the moment, I wouldn’t like anything to change.

“I hope it doesn’t get ruined by the media attention, everyone has been so supportive and I hope it continues that way.”
