Well, it looks like British Olympic Diver Tom Daley and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black made it pretty clear that they're a couple, following a number of media reports that popped up last year suggested such.

Daley, who made a splash late last year after announcing in a YouTube that he was in a relationship with another man, posted a photo of himself sitting next to Black at a restaurant on his Instagram account.

"#splash celebrations :) Beef Wellington...yes please!!!" the athlete, wrote on the image's caption. As Huffington Post reports, Daley, 19, is referring to the British celebrity diving show "Splash!" where he serves as mentor.

Black, 39, also posted an image that will only fuel fans’ suspicions that the two men are an item. Black, who won an Oscar for the screenplay for "Milk," posted an image of a cake that says, "I heart Tom" with the caption: "I concur. @tomdaley1994 fans are the SWEETEST."

Back in December media outlets reported that Daley and Black were an item, shortly after the diver came out.

"He’s besotted with Dustin. They love each other and aren’t concerned what anyone says about age difference," an anonymous source told British newspaper the Sun. "Dustin is very proud of Tom for making such a powerful statement about his sexuality. They are officially in a long term relationship and are talking about having a future together."

When Daley posted the YouTube video of him discussing his current relationship status, the diver didn’t disclose if he was gay or bisexual, simply stating he was dating a man. The video, however, went viral and has over 10.3 million views as of this writing.

"Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone. And it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And, well, that someone is a guy," Daley says in the video. "It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right."

"My whole world just changed, right there and then," he went on to say. "And, you know, of course I still fancy girls, but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. I just feel safe and it just really does feel right."
