Tom Daley Reveals More Details Of His Proposal To Dustin Lance Black

The two got engaged in September last year after two years of dating.

Recalling how he popped the question, the 21-year-old Olympic diver told OUT magazine: “I had the ring box in my underwear, and when he came out of the bathroom, I just went down on my knee and proposed.

“Then he ran off to the bathroom to get his rings, and he had this whole speech prepared, but he’s a writer so his was quite extravagant.

“But looking back, all I can remember is being completely overwhelmed, like, Oh my God, we’re now engaged. Who do we have to call? So I called my mom, and he called his stepdad.”

Wearing matching pyjamas with his fiancé, Tom also revealed that the couple had ‘talked about marriage within the first two weeks after seeing each other the first time in LA’ and that the topic had come up in conversation ‘so many times’.

He added: “I always knew it was going to happen at some point.”


Dustin, 41, also spoke about how the two met at a friend’s dinner, explaining: “Tom had just won an award at some Nickelodeon TV show, and they were planning to celebrate, and I said, ‘I’ve got to go home; I have a script to write’.

“And Tom took my phone, and he typed his number in with a winky face.”

And the rest, as they say, is history.
