If you’re picturing ultra-twink Tom Daley suddenly sporting chest hair, a harness, and smoking a cigar, you’ve entered my deepest fantasies! I kid. Tom, 24, and his husband, Dustin Lance Black, 44, announced on Instagram that they are the proud papas of a new baby son! Hopefully, Tom’s hanging in there. If he was as traumatized as he looked by an ultrasound pic, one can only imagine the terror he’s experiencing with a real-life howling responsibility machine.
Newborn Robbie Ray Black-Daley will now assume a place of honor in Tom and Dustin’s home beside the Oscar and the Olympic medals. He’s named after Tom’s dad Rob who passed away in 2011 from brain cancer.
“27/06/18 Welcome to the world our precious little Robbie Ray Black-Daley,” Daley wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of their son’s bare feet. “The most magical moment of my life. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable. Our precious son.”
Dustin took the top (of the kid’s head…in the Instagram post… you pervs!):
And Tom took the bottom (seriously, get your mind out of the gutter, this is a post about a baby!):
Tom and Dustin announced that there was a surrogate womb out there bearing a future speedo-wearer on Valentine’s Day of this year, and had a surprise baby shower in London in April. They were married in May of last year.
Now, you might ask yourself – “what kind of 24-year-old wants to be a dad already?” The answer? THE NON-EXISTENT KIND! I kid. I’m sure Tom was totally onboard with this decision and it had nothing to do with saving money because Tom and the kid can share clothes.
