Tom Daley Comes Out, Reveals He is in a Relationship with Another Man
British Olympic diving star Tom Daley said he “couldn’t be happier” after revealing he is gay.
The Olympic medallist posted a video on YouTube in which he spoke for the first time about a relationship he has started with another man. Watch the video below.
“I’ve never really had a serious relationship to talk about,” he said.
“Now I kind of feel ready to talk about my relationships.
“Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy.”
Daley, who was recently named the world’s sexiest man by two separate magazines, said he was initially surprised he was attracted to another man.
“It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked,” he said.
“It felt right. My whole world just changed, right there and then.
“Of course I still fancy girls. But I mean, right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. It makes me feel safe and just really does feel right.
“Is it a big deal? I don’t think so.
