Tom Daley and Maria Bello reveal new, same-sex relationships

British Olympic diver Tom Daley took to YouTube to officially come out, telling fans that he has been dating a man for most of this year.

“This has bee a hard decision to make, but I wanted you to hear this from me,” the 19-year-old athlete says in his video. “In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feel great. That someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that things just clicked. It felt right and I thought, ‘OK,’ and my whole world changed there and then.”

Actress Maria Bello also came out this weekend, in a first-person essay in the New York Times’ Modern Love section titled, “Coming Out as a Modern Family.”

“We had an immediate connection but didn’t think of it as romantic or sexual. She was one of the most beautiful, charming, brilliant and funny people I had ever met, but it didn’t occur to me, until that soul-searching moment in my garden, that we could perhaps choose to love each other romantically,” she wrote about stumbling upon her new girlfriend, Clare. Soon, the two “began the long, painful, wonderful process of trying to figure out what our relationship was supposed to be.”

Jackson, Bello’s 12-year-old son from her relationship with TV producer Dan McDermott, took his mother’s new relationship in stride. When she told him, “He looked at me for what seemed like an eternity and then broke into a huge, warm smile. ‘Mom, love is love, whatever you are,’ he said with wisdom beyond his years,” she wrote.
