How did their love story start?

On Dec. 2, 2013, Daley posted a YouTube video revealing that he was dating a man. “In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,” he says in the video. “And that someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right and I thought ‘OK,’ and my whole world changed there and then.”

Well, four years after meeting, the two got hitched on May 6, 2017, and their wedding looked gorgeous. In a video posted in August to Daley’s YouTube channel, the 23-year-old diver shared images of his and Black’s wedding day. The event took place in Devonshire in southeast England at a castle dating back from 1907, just 30 miles away from Daley’s hometown of Plymouth.

Congrats, boys, on the Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley baby!
