Olympic diver Tom Daley and Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black are officially parents!

The couple announced the birth of their son on Saturday morning in two separate but equally beautiful posts on their Instagram pages.

“Welcome to the world little Robbie Ray,” Dustin captioned while holding the back of his newborn son’s head. “Thank you for bringing so much love and light with you. And thank you to those who helped make our dream of having a family into this wonderful reality.”

Tom followed suit on his own Instagram page, displaying a photo of Robbie’s little feet and captioning the post with “27/06/18 • Welcome to the world our precious little Robbie Ray Black-Daley. The most magical moment of my life. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable. Our precious son.”

Robbie is named after Tom’s late father Robert who tragically died of a brain tumor back in 2011. The couple, who wed in May of 2017 after being engaged for almost two years, revealed the news that they were expecting their first child through surrogacy on Valentine’s Day this year.

The comments section on both of their photos were flooded with nothing but love for the new parents, including “Many magical moments await. Congratulations. Much love” and “Congratulations! You men will be incredible dads.”

Leave your well-wishes for Tom and Dustin in the comments section!
