The ceremony was very private, with just a handful of friends and family invited.

Since tying the knot, Lance Black has moved to London to live full-time with his husband, who now own a home together.

And the pair might be newly married, but it turns out a family is already on the cards.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Daley revealed: “Lance and I definitely want a family in the future – who knows when?

“We’re both lucky to have supportive families and we want to share that with our own children,” he adds.

Daley also revealed that he feels like the older one in their relationship – despite being 20 years younger.

He said: “I don’t really think about age and we never notice the age gap.

“Funnily enough, I feel older in terms of maturity.

“I had to grow up quickly because I was only 10 when I first travelled to Australia without my parents to compete.

“In a way, I did miss out on some aspects of childhood because I had to learn to do things for myself and stand on my own two feet quite quickly, but, on the other hand, I was so lucky to be able to travel and have so many experiences.”

The World Champion diver added: “Over the last few years I’ve matured both as an athlete and as a person and I’m in a good place in my mind and body.

“Actually, when I’m with the diving squad nowadays, I feel old because basically, I’m the ‘granddad’ in the team – everyone’s younger than me.”

Daley has been in his trans-Atlantic relationship since 2013, when the couple first met and announced their engagement in 2015 by revealing it in The Times newspaper.

Lance Black, an Oscar winning film producer, is 20 years older than the celebrity diver, but it has never been an issue for the pair.

“It’s very exciting moving forward and it’s nice to be in love.”
