In a tweet over the weekend, Daley said: “Welcome to the world our precious little Robbie Ray Black-Daley. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable, our precious little son”.

But not everyone is feeling the same love and joy for the new family.
Check out some of these responses…
It’s astonishing. Twitter has been full of outrage about children being taken from their mothers on the Mexican border but, when Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black take a baby from its mother, everybody says how wonderful it is…

Tom Daley and his partner now have a baby. Give me the 80’s any day of the week. ?????????

Ironically “their” new baby son is in the womb of a woman. That’s not your son. You two aren’t really married. It takes a man and a woman to create marriage. You two can’t procreate. This is wrong.

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black become parents. Where’s the mother of the baby? Two gay men using a woman to make a baby should be against the Law! https://t.co/fY7XaUIN1W

No problem with Tom Daley and partner buying a baby, it’s the ultra PC reporting that bothers me. They are not pregnant or have had a baby. A woman has, for money, which is also her choice. The language reminds me a bit of #thehandmaidstale and Mrs Waterford.

Of course, not everyone feels so negatively. There are plenty of folks who have had nothing but well wishes for the new dads and their beautiful baby boy:
Save your anti Tom Daley shit for someone else’s timeline. A loving married same sex couple just became parents. That sentence alone should be enough to warrant our congratulations, love and support.

Absolutely disgusted by all the homophobic comments about Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black having a son. It's 2018 people, not 1958

Siiiiiiick of people commenting on posts about Tom Daley’s news like “I’m not homophobic BUT I don’t think it’s right that a child has two fathers” like ok you don’t think gay couples should have the same rights as straight couples so just say you’re homophobic Gary and stfu
