Dani Dyer reveals her newborn baby boy's name as she gives a sweet update on her podcast
Dani Dyer has called her newborn baby Santiago.
The 24-year-old star – who welcomed her first child into the world with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence on January 23 – admitted she laughed at some "assumptions" about the baby name, and revealed his actual moniker.
Speaking in a pre-recorded voice memo on her Spotify Original podcast 'Sorted with the Dyers', she 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."
Santiago's name is a nod to the former 'Love Island' star's Spanish heritage, as her mum Joanne's father hails from Spain.
And Dani was delighted to meet her bundle of joy.
She added: "I honestly can’t believe it, he’s finally here, our little boy. I never thought I’d meet him.
"I felt like it was going on and on, but me and Sammy are so in love with him. He's just so perfect and the feeling is just incredible, I can’t put into words how it feels."
Dani's update comes as her dad Danny – who she hosts the podcast with – introduced fans to the episode and shared the exciting news.
He said: "So this episode is going to start a bit differently as we’ve got some massive news. It’s f****** huge.
"Because 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."
Announcing the amazing news over the weekend, Dani admitted she is "completely in love" with the little one already.
Taking to Instagram, she shared: "After a very long day and night finally our special little boy arrived 23/01/2021 ... Weighing 7 pound..
"We are in a complete baby bubble and enjoying every moment, can not believe he is ours, completely in love and so grateful to be his mummy ...
"Sending all my love to all the other mommas to be out there in lockdown .. the best experience ever will never forget this day (sic)"
