Tom Daley is dating Dustin Lance Black. The UK Olympic diver, who recently came out on YouTube, is in a relationship with the well-known screenwriter.

For his first boyfriend ever, Tom Daley picked a notable, famous one – and an older one. The athlete, 19, is less than half the age of his new partner.

"It’s true and they’re very happy," a source close to the 2012 bronze medalist confirms this week, adding that he and Black "been together since summer."

Daley came out as bisexual to fans via his YouTube page on Monday, and according to reports, Black wrote the script for the bombshell announcement.

"My life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great," Daley gushed to fans.

"That someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit," he said, though he declined to reveal Black’s identity at the time, noting, "I still fancy girls."

Of the 20-year age gap between the diver and his boyfriend, the Daley source tells Us Weekly, "Tom told friends he ‘doesn’t care what people think.’"
