EastEnders’ Danny Dyer looks baby-faced as a teen dad in sweet throwback video with daughter Dani


EASTENDERS star Danny Dyer looked baby-faced as a young dad in a sweet throwback video with his daughter Dani.

The new mum, now 24, was clearly feeling reflective as she watched childhood clips of herself as a little girl today.

Dani shared this sweet throwback video with fans today

The Love Island star shared part of the footage to her Instagram Story, showing herself as a toddler snuggling with her famous dad.

In the clip, Danny – now 43 – is wearing a white T-Shirt and blue jeans as he relaxes on a sofa.

The actor is laying down and has one arm behind his head, with daughter Dani cuddling up beside him.

It is not clear what year the video was filmed in, but Dani is still very young and has a dummy in her mouth – meaning that Danny would have been around 19 or 20 years old.

He was just 18 when he became dad to Dani

She simply tagged her dad in the social media post, adding a heart emoji to show her love for him.

Danny was just 18 years old when he welcomed his first baby with childhood sweetheart Jo Mas.

The pair were 14 years old when they met at school, and got married in September 2016 after more than two decades together.

Dani previously revealed her famous dad went ‘off the rails’ after becoming a teen dad

They briefly split after Dani was born but ended up reuniting, also sharing seven-year-old Arty, and 13-year-old Sunnie.

In 2019, Dani revealed that Danny went “off the rails” after becoming a teen dad because he “didn’t know what he was doing”.

She said at the time: “He was very young to be having a baby and didn’t really know what he was doing.

“He’ll be the first to admit this was the period in time when he was partying like mad and going off the rails.

“I don’t think he really understood the concept of being a dad.”

He and Jo remained apart for several years of Dani’s childhood, and she admitted that he would spoil her with treats because he felt “guilty” about not being around more.

The reality TV favourite is now a parent herself, welcoming son Santiago with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence in January of this year.
