They named their baby boy Robert, after Tom’s late father. Tom’s dad passed away in 2011, after a long battle with cancer.

The news of their second addition to the family comes only days after the couple celebrated their 10 year anniversary of knowing each other.

Tom and Dustin first met in 2013 and eventually got married in 2017 in Devon.

Looking back on their 10 years of romance, Dustin shared some romantic snaps, writing: “10 YEARS AGO TODAY… I met my best friend and the great love of my life at a random dinner in Los Angeles that I had no business being at (I had a script due the next day!).

“I worried I was in real (good) trouble from the first moment we spoke. I was right. Thank you Tom for all of your love, patience, and encouragement, for building our family together, and for all of the many adventures past and yet to come.”
