Newly out British Olympic diver Tom Daley appeared to confirm media reports he and Oscar-winning "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black are an item with a new Instagram photo.

Daley, 19, and Black, 39, look pretty cozy in the photograph, which appeared with the caption: "#splash celebrations :) Beef Wellington...yes please!!!" ("Splash!" refers to the British celebrity diving show, of which Daley serves as mentor)

Black then seemed to return the favor, posting the following image to his Instagram account with the caption, "I concur. @tomdaley1994 fans are the SWEETEST."

Reports that Daley was dating Black made headlines shortly after the diver's emotional coming out video went viral last month. Although he did not label himself "gay," "straight" or "bisexual," Daley did get frank about his current relationship with another man.

"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," he said in the clip. "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. 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."

Daley and Black were spotted together in October 2013 getting some drinks at The Coffee Bean in Hollywood, Queerty noted. At the time, eyebrows were raised over whether the two were a couple, despite the fact that Daley had publicly insisted he was not gay in September.
