The British Olympian is 20 years younger than his loved spouse, Hollywood screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, with whom he tied the knot in May. The two have often been criticized because of their age difference. But as for Tom himself, he has never felt younger than Lance and he believes that there is no connection between maternity and age stated in your passport. Nd however funny it may sound, Tom feels even more mature than his husband. “I had to grow up quickly because I was only 10 when I first travelled to Australia without my parents to compete. In a way, I did miss out on some aspects of childhood because I had to learn to do things for myself and stand on my own two feet quite quickly, but, on the other hand, I was so lucky to be able to travel and have so many experiences,” said the diver, adding that when he is with his team he feels like a grandpa, because other divers he trains with are much younger .
