Who are Matty Lee’s siblings?
Tom Daley isn’t the only Tom in Matty’s life, he also has a brother called Tom Lee. Tom is Matty’s older brother, and he is 28 years old.
There is little information about Tom online, as his Instagram is on private and he isn’t on other forms of social media. However, we do know that he was a competitive diver, which is what inspired Matty to begin diving. Matty has said that after his swimming lessons, he would go and watch Tom’s training and thought “I really wanna have a go at that”.
After this, he did a summer camp and fell in love with diving. Matty said that if it wasn’t for his older brother Tom he wouldn’t be where he is today doing what he loves.
Matty Lee’s parents
Matty was born on the 5th of March 1998 to parents Helen and Tim Lee. They’re both extremely proud of his diving, and boast about him all over their social media.
In an interview on Lorraine, they said that it’s been nice watching him on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! as they usually don’t get to see him very much due to Matty living in London and them being in Leeds. They also said that it was hard work handling his training whilst he was younger, but it was well worth it. Matty has also thanked his parents for his success in diving.
