Dani Dyer reveals the unique name of her newborn son

The reality star welcomed her first child over the weekend


Dani Dyer has finally revealed the name of her newborn son.

The Love Island star welcomed a baby boy with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence on Saturday, before she announced the news on Instagram on Sunday.

The 24-year-old has since told fans that she’s named her son Santiago.


Dani used her podcast to share the exciting news with fans, after inviting them to listen to the latest episode on her Instagram Story.

In a pre-recorded voice memo, the first-time-mum said: “I know you’re all probably wondering what we’ve called him…”

“There’s been a lot of assumptions going on, some are actually really funny to be fair, but his name is Santiago.”

“I know a lot of you are probably thinking ‘What?!’ but that is his name but we are going to be calling him Santi.”

“I think it sounds nice on the birth certificate,” she added.

The Love Island star hosts the podcast with her father Danny Dyer, who couldn’t hold in his excitement about being a grandad.

The former EastEnders star told listeners: “So this episode is going to start a bit differently as we’ve got some massive news. It’s f***ing huge.”

“I’m a Granddad! Yeah, Granddad Danny is what I’m now known as. And Dani has sent a voice memo to update us, which I think is very, very lovely.”

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old shared a photo of baby Santi in a £300 Fendi baby grow.
