Fans were undoubtedly thrilled for Tom and Dustin, with many gushing over the pair’s revelation.

‘Congratulations!! Happy Valentine’s Day you’ll both make such amazing parents,’ said one.

‘I’m actually crying I am so happy happy for you two,’ they tearfully exclaimed.

Tom met the 43-year-old American in 2013 and they tied knot in a romantic ceremony at Bovey Castle in Devon last year.

A few days after saying ‘I do’, Tom confirmed the union online. 

‘On 6th May 2017, I married the love of my life, @dlanceblack ❤️ We shared the day with 120 of our closest friends and family, from Texarkana to Plymouth,’ he said.

‘Thank you to everyone who made this weekend the most special weekend of our lives!’

Just a few months after their big day, Tom, 23, revealed that he and Dustin were already thinking about kids.

‘Lance and I definitely want a family in the future – who knows when,’ he told the Belfast Telegraph.

‘We’re both lucky to have supportive families and we want to share that with our own children.’
