Daley, 23, and Black, 43, were married last May in Devon, England, after announcing their engagement in October 2015.

Black is best known for his Best Original Screenplay Oscar, which he scored in 2008 for “Milk,” the biopic about gay activist and politician Harvey Milk, who was portrayed by Sean Penn.

"There are no words that will ever be able to explain what just happened to my heart," Lauren Paul, wife of Aaron Paul, captioned this photo of herself in the hospital bed after giving birth to her first child on Feb. 8, 2018.

Daley, meanwhile, earned his first bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics, and picked up a second in Rio in 2016. He also won gold in the 10-meter platform event at last year’s world diving championships.

He first came out as gay in 2013 with an emotional YouTube video in which he declared his love for a man, later revealed to be Black.

Three years later — post-engagement and pre-wedding — Black revealed that parenthood had long been the plan, even in the first days of their relationship.

“We were so busy making all these plans — we both wanted to have children; we both wanted to build a home of our own someday,” he told Out magazine. “I draw, so I was sketching little plans for houses on cliffs overlooking oceans, while Tom watched over my shoulder — it was a very grown-up version of playing house.”
