British Olympic diver Tom Daley and Hollywood producer/screenwriter Dustin Lance Black have announced the birth of their first child.
The couple sharedwith the internet back in February that they were expecting to both celebration and disdain.
While fans cheered, there were several conservatives who attacked the couple for planning to raise a child without a mother and having a child through surrogacy.
All of that darkness and negativity didn’t stop the couple from loving their unborn child and the future they planed together.
Now, that future has come to pass as Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have announced the birth of their newborn son named Robert Ray Black-Daley.
Wrote Black: “Welcome to the world little Robbie Ray. Thank you for bringing so much love and light with you. And thank you to those who helped make our dream of having a family into this wonderful reality.”
Wrote Daley: “Welcome to the world our precious little Robbie Ray Black-Daley. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable, our precious little son”
That’s not all though. The couple didn’t just announce little Robbie Ray’s birth on Twitter, they also did it through the Time of London print edition..
As one fan found in their newspaper, Robbie Ray appears in the Births, Marriage, and Deaths corner of the newspaper.
The message says, “BLACK-DALEY On 27th June 2018 to Thomas Robert Daley and Dustin Lance Black, a son, Robert Ray.”
While we’re sure that the trolls are coming, or have already arrived in the replies to both tweets, we hope that the love and celebrations of fans of news sources will outweigh the hate.
Congratulations to the happy family, we wish you the best.
