Tom Daley And Dustin Lance Black Announce They’re Engaged

Screen shot 2015-10-01 at 11.11.52 AMDid you hear that? It was the sound of tens of thousands of hearts shattering because — drum roll, please — Olympic medalist Tom Daley and Academy Award winner Dustin Lance Black are engaged to be married.

The couple, who have been dating for two years, announced their plans to be wed the old-fashioned way — with an engagement notice in the Times newspaper in London.

The engagement is announced between Tom, son of Robert and Debra Daley of Plymouth, and Lance, son of Jeff Bisch of Philadelphia and Anne Bisch of Lake Providence.

Daley, who scored two gold medals for England at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and a bronze for Britain at the 2012 Olympic Games, made headlines when he came out in YouTube video back in 2013.

“In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,” Daley said in the video. “That someone is a guy.”

He didn’t reveal who the guy was until months later. When Queerty broke the story that it was none other than Black, it made even more international headlines.

No info yet on when or where the wedding will take place, but we’ll keep you posted.
