Tom Daley admitted he isn’t “100 per cent gay”.

The 23-year-old Olympic diver is expecting his first child with his husband Dustin Lance Black – who he married last year – but said he isn’t fully gay and said his generation are “more fluid”.

In an interview with The Times, Daley said: “I am not 100 per cent straight. I’m not 100 per cent gay. I’m just queer. My generation, I think, are more fluid.”

Daley – who just won gold at the Commonwealth Games in Australia – revealed that neither him nor his husband know who the father of the is, but admitted he is already planning to expand the brood.

He said: “We found an egg donor and we are the sperm donors, we fertilised half the eggs each.

“We put in a boy embryo and a girl embryo and we don’t know whose is whose.

“The next time we will do it the other way around.”

Recently, the diver took to his YouTube channel to reveal his excitement at becoming a father and that they have already started working on the nursery for the baby – who is set to arrive in June.

He said: “If I’m quite honest, I’m literally so buzzing. We’ve been working on the nursery, we’ve got a rocking chair…

“Actually, when we were jet lagged the other day at 5.30 in the morning coming back from Australia, Lance and I put the pram together – stroller or whatever you call it depending where you are – but honestly, we are so excited.

“We even bought a little kangaroo outfit while we were in Australia with ears and everything and it’s literally just cuteness overload and I’m so excited because it’s getting closer and closer.”
