Dani Dyer says life as a single mum can be ‘hard’ after ex was jailed

Dani Dyer took part in an Instagram Q&A about her recent family holiday to Majorca, and one fan's question received an emotional response.

Love Island winner Dani, 25, revealed how she is coping without Sammy Kimmence by her side.

Dani and Sammy became first time parents to son Santiago in January but Sammy, 25, was imprisoned for three and a half years last month.

It has been a tough time for Dani, who has now admitted it is "hard" being a single parent, after reportedly splitting from her son's father when he was found guilty of defrauding two pensioners out of £34,000.

The stockbroker told the elderly men, aged 80 and 90, that he would invest their money but instead used it to pay off his debts and help fund a lavish lifestyle with trips to Dubai and Ibiza.

Dani, who is reportedly already open to the idea of finding love again, was forced to put on a brave face and is determined to ‘get on with things’ for the sake of their baby son.

In a candid chat with fans on her social media, Dani was asked directly if she was struggling being on her own with Santiago.

The first time mum replied: "I have such an amazing support system! Which I'm so grateful for they give me so much help when needed and I think I need to realise I shouldn't be ashamed to ask for help…

"If I need a few hours off then I won't feel bad to ask anymore…

"Don't get me wrong it is hard but I am so lucky that I've got an amazing family who love Santi so so much."

Her dad, EastEnders star Danny Dyer, was reportedly ‘relieved’ that his daughter called time on her relationship with Sammy.

"Dani's parents are relieved that she has walked away," a source told OK!

"They think this is for the best. They've told her she'll never be alone as a single mum as they'll always help her to raise Santiago."
