Yesterday, Olympic diver Tom Daley announced that he was dating a man

Of course I still fancy girls,” the 19-year-old Brit said in a YouTube video.  “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.”

Daley’s grandparents were confused when he told them, but they’ll be fine.  They say they’re liberal, so they’ll be fine.

We only found out at 5pm on Sunday when he came to see us,” Rosemary Daley told the Daily Mail.  “We are confused because he’s always had girlfriends.

“We asked him if he was absolutely sure. He’s our first grandson from our son who died.”

Daley’s father, Robert passed away from brain cancer in 2011.

“We have always been supportive of him and we always will. We’re not old-fashioned, in fact we’re quite liberal. But I do think he’s too young to be making this sort of decision.

‘But we hugged him, we thanked him for coming to see us, and we’ll be seeing him over Christmas. We’ll always be here for Tom.”

David Daley added that they’ve “always been loyal supporters” of their grandson, “and there’s no reason that that will change.”
