Adam is the son of Mark and Caroline Peaty. He was born and raised in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire alongside his three siblings; two brothers James Peaty and Richard Peaty and a sister Bethany Peaty. He is also the youngest of four children.
As a young boy, he developed an acute fear of water and was averse to being put in the bath after his brothers told him that sharks may come up through the plughole. At 4 years of age Peaty and his friend both went on their first swimming lesson together. It was at this swimming lesson where he lost the fear.
When Peaty won the men’s 100m breaststroke and also became the first British swimmer to defend an Olympic gold, his mum admitted the weight of history got the better of her and that she had been “petrified”.
She said: “Normally it’s all screams and everything in the Peaty household… but last night was really quiet. I was just pushing myself back into the sofa because I was petrified.
“The more that they exceed, the bigger the expectation – we felt it so heavy this time.”
His dad described his achievement as “fantastic”.

The video came after Peaty and his Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya Jones sparked a social media frenzy last weekend. The dancing duo appeared to “almost kiss” following the pair’s sultry Argentine Tango routine.
In the video Munro took part in a popular TikTok trend. The caption read: “I could do with some acting lessons lmao [laugh my a** off].”
Playing the part of two anime characters, she lip-synced: “Huh? What do you mean? You’re seriously going to date other girls.”
The male character responds: “Yeah. More or less.”
Munro continues: “I don’t want you to. If I see you with another girl… I’ll kill her.”
Following Adam and Katya’s “almost kiss” Munro responded to viewers with a hilarious video. The caption read: “Watching your boyfriend almost kiss another woman on live tv.”
