The 21-year-old Olympic diver and his 41-year-old fiance opened up to the mag about their whirlwind romance and underwear-clad proposal.
Dustin on when they met: “Tom had just won an award at some Nickelodeon TV show, and they were planning to celebrate, and I said, ‘I’ve got to go home; I have a script to write.’ And Tom took my phone, and he typed his number in with a winky face.”
Tom on their first date: “We literally spent three or four hours talking about the crap that we’d been through…. It was one of the first times that I felt, ‘Oh my God, this isn’t just a thing where I am attracted to someone. This is someone that I’ve connected with on a whole new level.’”
Tom on the proposal: “I had the ring box in my underwear, and when he came out of the bathroom, I just went down on my knee and proposed. Then he ran off to the bathroom to get his rings, and he had this whole speech prepared, but he’s a writer so his was quite extravagant.”
