Dani Dyer has lost a stone since welcoming her son Santiago five weeks ago, but the former 'Love Island' star insists she isn't focusing on her body right now
Dani Dyer has lost a stone since welcoming her son Santiago five weeks ago.
The former ‘Love Island’ star welcomed her first child with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence in January, and she feels "better about [herself]" after eating "more healthier".
Dani, 24, was taking part in an Instagram Q&A on Monday (01.03.21) when she was asked if she has been able to lose any pregnancy weight, and she responded: “I've lost a stone! But I've got a long way to go. It's horrible when none of your clothes fit, I'm literally living in lounge.
“But it's all worth it I have my beautiful boy, I am trying to eat more healthier just so I do feel better about myself! (sic)”
However, Dani isn’t focusing too much on losing weight, as she wants to use all her energy on “being a mum”.
She added: “But I'm not stressing too much about the weight, being a mum is a full time job. My body can wait.”
Dani recently admitted she was “so upset” and felt as though her “body failed” her when she had to undergo an emergency C-section while in labour.
She said: “Nothing ever goes to plan with me. It was really difficult, my waters broke the night before but my contractions slowed down...
“I wasn’t dilating enough for him to come out. And then we realised umbilical cord was wrapped around him so I ended with an emergency section.
“I’ve really grown in a month. I felt like my body failed me, why can’t it let me naturally have a baby and I was so upset and beat myself up.
“And because the baby blues were there as well I was crying for a whole week. Then I started accepting it and now I'm like, ‘Dani you have a scar and have an amazing baby.’ And I'm pleased I got to that point as the first week I hated myself.”
