Ian is still following Ryan on Instagram, but they both chose not to speculate about their relationship.

After Ryan shared a picture of himself with another man on Thursday, one of his followers asked: & # 39; Did you play it out with Ian Thorpe? & # 39;

It was significant that the skin care entrepreneur did not respond. Meanwhile, Ian still mentions himself as a & # 39; friend & # 39; in his Instagram bio.

& # 39; We've been talking about it for a while, but it's still early, & # 39; Ian said then. & # 39; We decided to visit the clinic in LA – it is all part of the plan in this phase. & # 39;

Ian, Australia's most decorated Olympian with five gold medals under his belt, had previously spoken of his desire to start a family of his own.

In the same way, Ryan was also enthusiastic about the prospect of surrogacy.

& # 39; Unfortunately, the laws in Australia are difficult for same-sex men with regard to surrogacy. California's state law has really improved in this area, making it the best option legally, & Ryan added.

& # 39; It is something that I would like to see further in Australia, so that same-sex couples do not have to travel abroad to achieve their family goals. & # 39;

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ian and Ryan representatives for comments.

Ian Thorpe: Olympic champion

He dominated mid-distance swimming, specialized in freestyle, but also participated in the backstroke and the individual medley.

Ian achieved worldwide success at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, where he won three gold medals and one silver.

He won three gold medals at the 2003 world championships before landing two gold medals at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.

Aided by its height of 6 feet 4 inches and extra-large feet, which have been compared to fins, Thorpe became known as & # 39; Thorpedo & # 39 ;.

In November 2006, Ian shocked the swimming world when he announced that he would quit the sport at the age of 24.

However, in February 2011, he announced that he would return for the 2012 London Olympics, but was not eligible for the Australian team.

Since he quit sports, he has continued to work in sponsor and ambassador roles and has emerged as a philanthropist.
