Daley and his husband, Dustin Lance Black, welcomed their son via surrogate in June of 2018. In a 2019 interview with Heart Radio Network, Daley explained why he chooses not to show his son's face on social media. He said, "There’s many reasons really. There’s lots of people in our family, because we’re spread across the world, there’s lots of people that haven’t met him yet, and we want to be able for him to meet those friends and family members in person. That might change in the future, but for right now, we wanted to enjoy the first year with him."
The diver also revealed how becoming a father has changed him. He added, "Before Robbie was around I would come home and be thinking about diving and all the things that I could have done better. When I get home now, there’s this little face with his hands reaching towards me, and I’m instantly taken away from the diving pool."
What a lucky kid!
