Dustin Lance Black reveals reason he’s going to be a ‘stay-at-home dad’

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black

Dustin Lance Black says he will be a ‘stay-at-home dad’ while his diver husband Tom trains for the next Olympics.

Bronze medal winner Tim is expected to compete in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Milk screenwriter Dustin said: ‘Tom’s got a really clear deadline coming up which is Tokyo, so there are ways in which we’ve devised our schedules to make sure he stays healthy – physically – as possible. Whereas my career is very much about being mentally sharp.’

‘How lucky am I?’

He furthermore added: ‘And by the way I’m a film maker – we usually don’t get good at what we do until we’re in our fifties or sixties, like I’ve got some time, you know what I mean? He’s an athlete!

‘And how lucky am I? I get to be the stay at home dad and my career allows that.’

The Oscar-winning screenwriter made the admission on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Nihal Arthanayake on Afternoon Edition.

Tom and Dustin married in a lavish Devonshire ceremony in May 2017. They welcomed son Robert on 27 June this year.
