On Valentine's Day this year, the couple had shared the news of considering surrogacy and revealed that they have no idea, which one of them is the father as they fertilized "half the eggs each." "We found an egg donor and we are the sperm donors, we have fertilized half the eggs each. We put in a boy embryo and a girl embryo, and we don't know whose is whose. The next time we will do it the other way around," Tom was quoted as saying.
Ever since the announcement, Tom has been quite vocal about how his whole perspective on life changed after embarking on the journey to fatherhood.
According to the Independent, the three-time world champion diver revealed during an interview he gave at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, “Even on a plane. I'm never scared of flying - and as soon as there was any turbulence - I was like 'oh my God,' because there's more than my life I have to care about now. It made me feel a bit more nervous. It changes your perspective on absolutely everything."
