As Us Weekly reported back in December 2013, Daley, 21, and Black, 41, started dating in the summer of that year. The Olympic champion came out as bisexual to fans via his YouTube page on Dec. 2, 2013, revealing that he'd fallen in love with a man, but not disclosing Black's identity at the time.

"My life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great," Daley gushed. "That someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit," he continued, noting, "I still fancy girls."

Sources told Us that the 20-year age gap between Daley and his Oscar-winning Milk scribe love wasn't something that bothered him at all. "Tom told friends he 'doesn't care what people think,'" our insider revealed.

And it looks like this relationship was meant to be! Because the couple are now engaged to be married, and proudly announced their exciting news by placing an article in the Times of London's Births, Marriages and Deaths section.

Daley and Black moved in together in London in May of this year.
