Tom proposed to boyfriend Lance while wearing just his underwear.
The couple hasn’t yet decided where they will tie the knot. Lance would prefer a wedding in the UK, while Tom would prefer to get hitched in the US.
During a TV appearance to promote his new fitness book Tom’s Daily Plan, the athlete revealed that he would be walking up the aisle with his screenwriter boyfriend Lance sometime this year. The couple has been engaged since October 2015, having first got together in early 2013. Tom revealed that he had proposed to Lance in their spare room, wearing just his underwear.
Tom has expressed his concerns about marriage equality during the presidency of Donald Trump.
Lance has been heavily involved in the U.S. in making sure every person has the right to marry, whether that is same sex or not I think it’s crucial that those kind of laws are upheld. And I know that there are a lot of people in the U.S. that will be making sure that stays the case.
In an interview with Attitude magazine, Lance explains that Tom is the one in charge.
I think probably the biggest misconception is that I’m somehow the boss, and the absolute truth of the matter is that he is the boss. He makes the plans, he keeps the calendar. I try to keep up but he’s definitely the more organized, stricter one, and I love that. — Lance about Tom
Olympic medallist Tom has said his relationship with Dustin is now stronger than ever, despite a Snapchat video he sent to a fan being leaked online. ‘I’m 22 years old, and if you talk to someone through social media it is what it is. It was nothing more than that. We never physically met.’
