British diver Tom Daley said in a
recent interview that he's ready for more children with husband
Dustin Lance Black.
Daley, who won two medals at the Tokyo

The 27-year-old told GLAAD's Anthony
Allen Ramos that he'd love to compete in the next Olympics.
“If I can manage to do another
Olympic Games, I would love to,” he said. “But I am going to take

competed] at the Olympic Games where [being] an LGBTQ person…is

else; we just want to be treated the same as a straight person
Daley added that he wants a “big
“We have always said that we would
like to have a big family,” he said. “As a gay couple, it’s not
just as easy as a bottle of wine and a good time! There is a bit more
thought and preparation that has to go into it, but it is something
that we would definitely like to look into in the future for sure.”
