The two also have a five-year-old son.


Out Olympic gold medalist Tom Daley and Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black revealed the birth of their second child on Wednesday.

Black shared an image of the family with their new addition on Instagram.

“And then there were four,” Black wrote. “Our second son, Phoenix Rose Black-Daley, arrived at 3:34 p.m. on March 28, 2023.”

The couple, who will celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary next month, has another son, five-year-old Robert "Robbie" Ray Black-Daley.

Daley shared on his Instagram account, “Our family has grown in the last week, we welcomed Phoenix to the world on 28/03/23 and he’s just perfect. Robbie is loving being a BIG BRO!”

He won Olympic bronze medals in 2012 and 2016 for diving and won a gold medal in 2021 at the Tokyo Olympics. Black won the Academy Award for original screenplay for the 2008 film Milk. Mama's Boy, a documentary about Black's life based on his memoir of the same name premiered on HBO in October.

"The best part [of being a parent] is just that love that you feel and that love that they give to you and...[how] they just melt your heart in every single way, which is just so, it's the best thing ever," Daley told The Advocate last year. "It helps put things into perspective of what really matters most. The hardest part is just that constant feeling that you're going to mess it up and that you're going to say one thing that's going to then take them in a certain direction. You just want what's best for your kids, and I think that's the hard thing — just making sure that you are always doing the best that you can."
