British Olympic diver Tom Daley jokes
that he raced fiance Dustin Lance Black to propose marriage.
Daley, 21, who came out bisexual in a
2013 YouTube video, and Black, a 41-year-old Oscar-winning
screenwriter, started dating in the summer of that year.
The couple made public their engagement
in an announcement titled “Mr T.R. Daley and Mr D.L. Black” in
the Times of London's Birth, Marriages and Deaths section.

Daley told ES
Magazine that he proposed marriage at Black's house on Sunset
Strip in Hollywood.
“There was a race,” Daley said with
a laugh. “I took the ring with me from London.”
“I could never find a place where we
were alone,” Daley continued. “It's scary to ask, and you're
psyched up. Eventually I decided I had to do it and it ended up
being in the house. Lance was surprised, but then he went and got
the ring he'd bought for me. He'd been having a similar problem.
We'd both told each other's parents before flying out.”
