Tom Daley and Justin Lance Black are in a very happy place considering that they just welcomed their very first child, who they named Robert Ray.

Little Robert was born via surrogate on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, and was named after Daley's father, Robert Daley, who passed away in 2011 following a battle with cancer.

Despite having been born on Wednesday, the proud couple shared Robert's first picture on Saturday, showing all their fans and followers on Instagram their new bundle of joy.

In the picture, both Daley and Black can be seen cradling their son in their intertwined hands; underneath, the caption read 'thank you for bringing so much love and light with you.'

But that wasn't the only photo shared by the proud parents. Through Dailey's account, they also posted a snap of their baby's little feet, with the diver considering Robert's birth 'the most magical moment' of his life.

The couple has been together since 2013 and, like many gay couples around the world, they too have faced negative comments regarding surrogacy, arguing that people are quicker to support an heterosexual couple than a gay one.
