Dustin Lance Black: I would have a dozen more children with Tom Daley

Dustin Lance Black has said he would love to have “a dozen” more children with husband Tom Daley.

The 45-year-old Oscar-winning screenwriter and the Olympic diver, 25, welcomed their son, Robbie Ray, via surrogate last year.

He told ITV’s Lorraine: “Baby is great, he is almost one year old. He’s up to eight teeth, he’s starting to stand. It blows my mind.

“I have this new set of eyes that I get to see the world through.”

On having more children, he said: “Yes. I would love to. I was raised Mormon by my Mormon mom … Happy to have a dozen!”

Black also said he gets up with Robbie most nights so that Daley is safe for his diving training.

He said: “He needs his rest in order to be safe in practise. He works out six days a week, so I do the night whatever if he wakes up.

“Those blessed Saturday nights, because Tom doesn’t have practise on a Sunday, I get to sleep throughout.”
