Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley are officially winning Valentine’s Day. The married pair revealed early this morning that they are expecting their first child together. Black, an award-winning screenwriter and director, and Daley, an Olympic diver, posted pictures to their respective Instagram pages of themselves holding up a sonogram, announcing their good news to the world.

“A very happy #ValentinesDay from ours to yours 👨‍👨‍👦,” Black captioned his sweet snapshot, in which he happily embraces his husband. Daley posted a similar photo to his own account, with a very excited but simple “Happy Valentines Day” caption. It is, indeed!

This announcement comes less than a year after the couple tied the knot in May 6, 2017 at the very chic Bovey Castle Hotel, which is about 30 minutes away from Daley's home city of Plymouth, England.

Following their wedding, it seemed like it would only be a matter time before the couple embarked on the road to fatherhood, as both Daly and Black have previously expressed their desire to have a family for years.

"I'd like to have children," Daley told BuzzFeed back in 2013, according to E! News. "I grew up with two brothers, so I'd like to have at least three."

And when Daley met Black, it's like the stars aligned. "Lance and I definitely want a family in the future,” Daley told the The Belfast Telegraph a few months after they had tied the knot. “Who knows when? We're both lucky to have supportive families. We want to share that with our own children."

The baby will probably be here before we know it, but if you can't wait, take a gander at this adorable picture of Daley and Black holding their niece. The cuteness will help tide you over until their own little bundle of joy arrives!

Congratulations to this happy—and growing—family!
