    Looks like Tom Daley had a very merry Christmas.

    The British Olympic diver—who came out as bisexual in a YouTube video earlier this month, saying his "friends and family are always there to support" him —proved just that via Instagram on Tuesday, Dec. 25, sharing a series of photos with his loved ones while celebrating the holidays.

    Daley, who is currently dating Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, first tweeted a photo of a present from his aunt wrapped with a gay pride rainbow ribbon, as a nod to his bisexuality.

    The 19-year-old Olympian then shared a silly pic of his new striped Christmas toe socks while relaxing in his home in Plymouth. And turns out, his boyfriend Dustin Lance Black received the same pair of rainbow socks and also shared a pic, captioning the photo, "THANKS MOM."

    Too cute! 

    Daley also couldn't help but share a pic of his new rainbow apron with the words "gay icon" emblazoned across the front.

    "Hahahaha...thanks @samueldaley93 and @xsophielee lol," he wrote of the photo, which also features Daley's BFF Sophie Lee wearing an apron with the British flag.

    While Daley has yet to identify his new love by name (although the two have been seen looking cozy together on a number of occasions), he said in his YouTube confession that he "couldn't be happier" with the Milk screenwriter.

    "I'd never felt the feeling of love. It happened so quickly," he said on U.K.'s Jonathan Ross Show in an episode which aired Saturday, Dec. 7. "I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can't get him out of my head all the time. I've never had it before where I love someone and they love me just as much." 

    "All that I feel happy about at the moment is that I'm dating a guy and couldn't be happier," he added of his 39-year-old beau. "It shouldn't matter who I'm dating and I hope people can be happy for me...My life at the moment is perfect."
