British Olympic diver, Tom Daley and his gay husband, US film director Dustin Lance Black, have said that they are expecting a baby.
The gay couple, who were married last year, revealed the news on Instagram with a picture from the baby scan.
A spokesman for Daley said:
“Tom and Dustin are thrilled to share that they are expecting their first child in 2018.”
On Wednesday, Daley posted his message with a black and white image from the baby scan. He captioned it: “Happy Valentine’s Day!”
Black posted another photograph on Twitter;
“A very happy Valentine’s Day from ours to yours,” he wrote with a family emoji.
Diving champion, Tom Daley is 23 years old, and his filmmaker husband, 43. Tom Daley won bronze medals at the Olympic Games in London and Rio de Janeiro.
Daley’s mum Debbie Daley said she was “delighted” at the news.
Fans of the married couple expressed their congratulations on social media.
“Thrilled for you that your dream of raising a family is coming true,” one person wrote on Twitter.
“Congratulations! You and Lance are going to make great parents,” another individual commented.
Some have speculated that Daley and Black are expecting a boy, as the emoji of a family that they chose to use in their captions seemingly depicts a male child.
