    Tom Daley and his husband Dustin Lance Black have announced that they've welcomed their second son, Phoenix Rose.

    Olympic diver Tom, 28, and Dustin, 48, shared their exciting baby news on Wednesday (April 5) despite not previously revealing that they were expecting another baby.

    But they're now a happy family of four as the couple confirmed that baby Phoenix was welcomed via surrogate on March 28.

    The announcement in The Times read: “Black-Daley on 28th March to Thomas Robert Daley and Dustin Lance Black, a son, Phoenix Rose.”

    It comes after the doting dads welcomed their son, Robert Ray Black-Daley via surrogate back in June 2018.

    Robert was the name of Tom's late dad Robert who tragically passed away in 2011 following a brain tumour.

    Tom, a gold-medal-winning Olympian, previously admitted he'd wanted to become a parent for as long as he can remember.

    Speaking to Giovanna Fletcher on her Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast, he said: "For as long as I could remember, I have wanted to be a parent.

    "I think because of the relationship with my mum and dad, we were so close and then, when I lost my dad, it was like, I want to be everything that he was to me to someone else because every child deserves to have what I had with my dad because it was such a special relationship, we were so close."

    Opening up about surrogacy, Tom added: "Lance and I […] had lost so many people in our families and there was something about surrogacy that we were drawn to that just meant that we could pass on the people that we’d lost, their genes and their thoughts, their feelings, their personalities and being able to bring someone into the world, that felt so extremely special."

    Tom and Dustin tied the knot in May 2017 after meeting in 2013 and becoming engaged two years later.

    They now live in their London pad together with little Robbie.

    Tom said of Dustin: "I'd never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly, I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can't get him out of my head all the time."
