Black shared his photo on Instagram with the caption, “A very happy #ValentinesDay from ours to yours.”

“Happy Valentine’s Day!” Daley captioned his post.

Daley, 23, and Black, 43, began their romance in 2013 after meeting through mutual friends, before tying the knot in an outdoor ceremony in May 2017.

Daley, a two-time bronze medalist diver for Great Britain in the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, and Black, an Oscar-winning screenwriter, spoke to Out magazine about wanting children together in 2016.

“We were so busy making all these plans – we both wanted to have children; we both wanted to build a home of our own someday,” Black told the magazine in 2016. “I draw, so I was sketching little plans for houses on cliffs overlooking oceans, while Tom watched over my shoulder – it was a very grown-up version of playing house.”

Their relationship was “love at first sight,” and they knew marriage was bound to happen.

“Marriage is the foundation to all of these other big plans we have. So we knew we were going to get engaged — it was just a matter of when, and who does it,” Black said.

Here are are seven things to know about the model:

She’s from Compton, California.

The Compton native attended private school and told Fox News in an interview that her childhood was “pretty normal.” 

“A lot of the time, after school, we would go to my grandma’s house because my parents were working. We would swim, ride our bikes down the street, we had a trampoline, scooters, everything!” she said.

She’s only the third black woman to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Herrington joins the ranks of SI cover girls Tyra Banks (1997) and Beyonce (2005), the only other black women to grace the cover in the magazine’s 54-year history.

She started modeling around age 13.

Herrington attended John Casablancas’ modeling school when she was around 10 or 11 years old and started modeling at age 13, but remained focused on school until 2015, when she took on a gig for a Seventeen magazine back-to-school bash.

Her portfolio includes some big brands.

According to BuzzFeed, Herrington has modeled for Guess, Juicy Couture and made her New York Fashion Week debut by walking in Philip Plein’s Spring 2017 show.

This isn’t Herrington’s first rodeo with Sports Illustrated.

The model was part of the Sports Illustrated Swim 2017 rookie class, which she described as “a dream come true.” Editor MJ Day called Herrington a “natural brand ambassador.” Past rookies have included Kate Upton and Chrissy Teigen.

She always looked up to Tyra Banks.

“I just remember Tyra Banks being on the cover, and that’s where it all started for me. That’s what really made me pursue modeling,” Herrington told Fox News

Harrignton and Banks met for the first time when the iconic model surprised Harrington with the magazine cover.

Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Freja Beha Erichsen are other models Harrington looks up to.

If she wasn’t modeling, she’d be studying child psychology.

In an interview with GQ, Herrington said she studied psychology and was always interested in how the mind works. If she wasn’t a model, she would be interested in becoming a child psychiatrist.

Omarosa says U.S. would be 'begging' for Trump's return if Mike Pence became president

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former White House aide who quickly transitioned to the CBS reality show “Celebrity Big Brother,” dropped more bombshells on the program, this time sharing a warning about Vice President Mike Pence.

The woman who became a household name on “The Apprentice” told her reality show housemates on Monday’s episode that they ought to think twice about a Pence presidency, saying Pence would be a “scary” alternative to President Donald Trump.

“Can I just say this: As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence. So everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” Newman told the others. “We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying. He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”

The conversation headed toward Pence when the group started talking about the recent government shutdowns and the possibility of a Trump impeachment.

Newman also talked about the recent crackdown by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and sounded a warning alarm about coming immigration policies.

“I’ve seen the roundup plan,” she said. “It’s getting more and more aggressive.”

Expanding on the topic of the ICE crackdown, Newman said the Obama administration did Trump a favor with its policy on DREAMers.

“Barack Obama’s administration said, ‘If you sign up and basically out yourself that you’re here illegally, we’ll protect you,'” she said. “As a result, all of these people signed up, outed their families, their children, people who were in hiding. Then Donald Trump got in and was like, ‘Yeah, that was his little executive order.'”

The other house members have generally expected bombshell material out of Newman.

“Every time she opens her mouth, I’m like, ‘Is she gonna drop a bomb?'” Ross Mathews said. “Is there gonna be a breaking news go across the screen?”

For his part, Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath exclaimed: “It’s Omarosa time!”

McGrath then went on to question the validity of anything Newman says.

“Time to talk about her stint in the White House … but, you always have to remember, this is Omarosa, a world-class reality TV villain. Is it true? Is it game? Is it her story? Is it the real story?"

“It’s Omarosa’s world, and I’m just livin’ in it.”

In a previous episode, Manigault-Newman broke down while talking to Mathews. She said Americans should be concerned about the Trump administration.

“It’s going to not be OK; it’s not,” she said. “It’s so bad.”

“I respect Meghan Markle’s hustle and I respect her game. However, she’s a bit of a wild card, you know, because she goes from being the ‘Deal or No Deal’ girl, so this is a girl looking for game,” Williams said. 

“And remember the story here at Wendy. She came here to Wendy to find out what she could do here. She’s been here; she’s been in our building. We have her DNA.”
