It's been three months since Tom Daley exchanged vows with husband Dustin Lance Black, and the Olympic diver could not be happier! The 23-year-old opened up about his married life with the Oscar-winning producer, claiming his life is "better" now. In a new YouTube video, Tom gushed: "There's something about married life that just changes the way that you think, the way that you feel - how secure you are, just that everyday life seems a whole lot better. It was nice to have him home and be here and be with me while I was training. My training got better and better."
