Danny Dyer's brother Tony wasn't able to be best man at his wedding because his wife was giving birth
Danny Dyer's brother missed his wedding because his wife was giving birth.
The 'EastEnders' actor had to enlist his younger sister Kayleigh, who is also pregnant, to take over as his ring bearer at the last minute for his wedding to childhood sweetheart Jo Mas after brother Tony, who was due to be best man, had to dash off to be at the birth of his child.
Danny said: "My sister, she's my best girl and I loved her with all my heart.
"She stepped in at the last moment, which is great because she is five months pregnant too. She's a special girl."
The 39-year-old actor - who plays pub landlord Mick Carter in the soap - watched on as his three kids Dani, 19, Sunnie, nine, and two-year-old Arty, walked down the aisle ahead of their mum during the ceremony in Hampshire, southern England.
Several of the Danny's 'EastEnders' co-stars were in attendance at the nuptials, including his on-screen mum Linda Henry (Shirley Carter), on-screen wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) and on-screen kids, Danny-Boy Hatchard (Lee Carter), Maddy Hill (Nancy Carter) and Ted Reilly (Johnny Carter).
At the wedding, Danny praised his new wife as the "love of my life".
He said: "I could not have hoped for a more beautiful day. To be standing here with the girl I grew up with - looking so beautiful here in her wedding dress - that is a lovely thing.
"Jo is my best girl - the love of my life."
Jo added to HELLO! magazine: "I just want to do it all over again."
Guests at the wedding enjoyed a feast including corn-fed chicken and Serrano ham with roast potatoes and carrots as well as a dessert of egg custard tart and blackberry and apple puree.
Several tapas selections were also on the menu, such as plums wrapped in ham with chorizo, and anchovies.
