Tom Daley's Grandparents Vow Love & Support After Grandson's Coming Out

Tom Daley's coming out announcement may have been met with mixed reaction, but his grandparents are two people that are thankfully showing their support.

Still, Rosemary and David Daley admit that they were initially a little confused.

According to the Daily Mail:

Mrs Daley, 65, of Plymstock, Devon, said: ‘We only found out at 5pm on Sunday when he came to see us. We are confused because he’s always had girlfriends. 

'We asked him if he was absolutely sure. He’s our first grandson from our son who died.

'We have always been supportive of him and we always will. We’re not old-fashioned, in fact we’re quite liberal. But I do think he’s too young to be making this sort of decision.

‘But we hugged him, we thanked him for coming to see us, and we’ll be seeing him over Christmas. We’ll always be here for Tom.’ 

Mr Daley, 66, a former company director, added: ‘We’ve always been loyal supporters of Tom and there’s no reason that that will change.’

Yep. We think Tom's gonna be alright. 

Loving that unconditional support! 

What do you think of his grandparents' reaction, Instincters?

Bet that fine lil ass is a perpetual cum dump.

Fantastic that his family support him but disappointed in saying they think he's too young for that decision. If he was announcing that he was getting married to a girl would they say the same? I think they're hoping it just a "phase" but do believe that his happiness is paramount.

Really fantastic grandparents!! So moving story :)


A little more Hope restored in the human race.

good for him i am happy for him :)

I am so happy for him!!

That is real family love.

Too young? Do they think he's 12?

Great to hear it! There's so many idiots who don't support their relatives or friends...
