‘Being married makes a couple feel a lot more secure’
Tom Daley has opened up about married life with Dustin Lance Black in a candid new interview.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Tom says he wants a family with his director hubby and ‘never notices’ their age gap.
‘I don’t really think about age and we never notice the age gap,’ he says. ‘Funnily enough, I feel older in terms of maturity. I had to grow up quickly because I was only 10 when I first travelled to Australia without my parents to compete.’
The Olympian went on to explain that he feels like the ‘granddad’ in his diving squad, adding ‘Everyone’s younger than me!’
‘Lance and I definitely want a family in the future’
Tom and Dustin tied the knot in May in a gorgeous ceremony in Devon.
When asked about the nuptials, Tom said: ‘The wedding was amazing and you want that moment to last forever. But at the same time, it’s nice to get back to work and normality. We’re a married couple and life goes on.’
He added: ‘Being married makes a couple feel a lot more secure and is really nice. We’re based in London together, although Lance has to split his time between America and the UK because of his work. But he’s spending more time in the UK currently, which is great.
“When we’re apart, we FaceTime every day and when we get back together, it’s extra special. We understand each other’s work, passion and commitment, and you just have to make it work for both of you.’
On what’s next, he said: ‘Lance and I definitely want a family in the future – who knows when? We’re both lucky to have supportive families and we want to share that with our own children.’
