Love Island winner Dani Dyer has shared dad Danny Dyer's hilarious response to finding out she was pregnant with twins.

Dani confirmed on 21 January she was pregnant, expecting twins in Spring 2023 with footballer boyfriend Jarrod Bowen.

On Tuesday 24 January, Dani took to Instagram for a Q+A with fans, during which she confirmed the twins were identical, she was already five months into the pregnancy, and she was having cravings for mash potato and vinegar.

But the funniest note came when she shared screengrabs of the moment she told actor dad Danny and mum Jo Mas about the news via text.

In the WhatsApp messages, her excited mum Jo asked if she can "keep one" while former EastEnders star Danny (who she names 'Papa Bear' on her phone) had an expectedly fitting f-bomb-laden reaction.

"Hold up. Are you f***ing joking me????" he asks her as she sent him a picture of the scan.

"Dad! I can't believe it," she responded. "They missed it on the scan and now it's come up identical twins."

Danny replied: "WTF!! Oh my f***ing god"

Dani then told her dad "Helppppppp."

The upcoming babies will be Dani's second and third children, having had son Sanitago in 2020 with now ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

Kimmence and Dani split after he went to jail for his role in a scam to defraud pensioners.

Dani started dating West Ham footballer Bowen at the end of 2021, making their first red carpet appearance together in January 2022.

"So excited to meet our babies and watch Santi be the best big brother..

"The biggest surprise of our lives but feeling SO blessed.. our family is getting a lot bigger and we can’t wait."
