Weeks After Having a Son, Tom Daley is Spearheading a Surrogacy Film

Just weeks after Olympic diver Tom Daley and his Academy Award-winning husband, Dustin Lance Black, welcomed their son Robert into the world, Daley is spearheading a BBC One docu-film about surrogacy.

The hour-long film will address multiple issues surrounding surrogacy, especially for same-sex couples wishing to have a child.

Daley continues to receive a barrage of hatred and vitriol for having a child with his husband.

Back in April, with his son on the way, Daley said that he gets “tons [of abuse] every day, but at the end of the day, I’m married with a kid on the way and I don’t care what anyone says.”

The film will also shine a light on surrogacy laws in both the UK and the United States.

In the UK, it is illegal to advertise for or pay a surrogate to carry your baby. The 24 year-old is set to travel to California, where commercial surrogacy is permitted, to speak with a few surrogacy law experts and parents who've used surrogacy in the Golden State.

With the working title Surrogacy, the documentary is set to premiere sometime in 2019.
