British Olympic diver Tom Daley has announced that he is having a baby with his husband, the American director Dustin Lance Black.

The pair shared the happy news on their social media accounts today (February 14).

Tom and Dustin got married in Dartmoor back in May last year. 

A spokesman for the couple told the Press Association: "Tom and Dustin are thrilled to share that they are expecting their first child in 2018."

The couple unveiled a photograph of themselves holding a baby scan picture on Instagram and Twitter, writing: "Happy Valentines Day!".

Daley's mum Debbie Daley said that she was "delighted" at the baby news.

The 23-year-old diver first announced that he had a boyfriend in a YouTube video back in 2013, and the couple later announced their engagement in 2015.

Dustin Lance Black, 43, is best known for winning the 'best original screenplay' Oscar for the 2008 movie Milk, which is based on the life of gay rights activist Harvey Milk.

Tom Daley won bronze medals at the Olympic Games in both London and Rio de Janeiro.

Congratulations to them both!
