Dani Dyer has admitted she’s been struggling with the “baby blues” since the birth of her son.

The Love Island star welcomed a baby boy named Santiago with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence last month, and has been documenting life as a new mother on social media.

Appearing on her Sorted With The Dyers podcast with her father Danny, the 24-year-old revealed she’s been feeling “emotional” since the birth.

“It’s been hard, the baby blues are real. It is incredible; your body goes through so much,” she explained.

“You just want to cry, I’d look at him and cry, I think because you’re constantly thinking ‘am I doing enough?’”

“I’ve started breastfeeding and it’s hard, it’s difficult. You want to do everything right and I think that’s why you cry.”

The reality TV star opened up about the birth, saying: “I had to have a caesarean in the end and I was crying about that.”

“I never wanted to have a c-section, I know they are very common and I know they happen but I never wanted one – that was never in my birth plan, so I started feeling like a failure.”

‘The baby didn’t want to come out, my waters broke and I was at five centimetres and he wasn’t dilating. I ended up having to have a c-section, it was an emotional day.”
