Tom Daley is going to be a happy father no matter what the critics say


Tom, Daley has announced two month ago that he and his husband Dustin Lance Black are going to have a son via surrogacy and faced a lot of hate. Speaking to the Times today, Daley opened up about what it was like to be attacked for a normal human desire to have a full family. I get tons [of abuse] every day, but at the end of the day, I’m married with a kid on the way and I don’t care what anyone says,” the diver notes, adding that he is here not to be liked by everyone, he found harmony with himself, he is happy and in love, the rest does not matter. Speaking about how impending fatherhood has impacted him, Daley added: “It has changed me. Even flying out on the plane I am normally fine with turbulence and just fall asleep, but now I’m thinking, ‘It’s not just me.’ Holy crap, I have to worry about looking after a human being and being in charge of making sure they survive and thrive. Diving is no longer my number one [concern]. My child is number one and diving is number two and, for me, that order might help. All of a sudden coming to training is no longer my crazy, chaotic time; it’s the quiet time without a screaming, pooping child.”
