Dani Dyer and West Ham United footballer Jarrod Bowen put the ultimate seal on their relationship by taking to Instagram in a cosied-up photo on Saturday.
The beaming pair looked smitten as they enjoyed what was clearly a romantic evening for two this weekend. They were previously snapped getting coffee together, but this is the first time they’ve both mentioned the romance.
Sipping from a glass of champagne, 25-year-old Dani captioned the photo: ‘Saturday night.’ Jarrod, 24, then re-shared the post to his own Instagram Stories, confirming that they were indeed a couple.
It’s the first proper romance for Dani who has had a rough time since splitting with ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence, with who she shares son Santiago with, born in January this year.
‘Everything is so early days. Jarrod is a lovely guy and we’re enjoying getting to know each other,’ the Love Island winner told The Sun recently.
‘But Santi will always be my main priority, he will always come first. I am concentrating on being a mum and, beyond that, whatever happens, happens,’ she continued, before adding that Jarrod had already gotten the seal of approval from dad.
‘My dad thinks Jarrod’s a lovely guy,’ she added.
Back in July, ex-boyfriend Sammy was jailed for three and a half years for cheating two pensioners out of £34,000.
The 25-year-old was sentenced at Portsmouth Crown Court, as the court heard that his actions left an RAF veteran ‘living on the breadline’ after being conned out of his life savings.
He had pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud for scamming two men out of £34,000 and received a 42-month sentence for his crime.
Reality TV star Dani was rocked by his sentence as he had reportedly ‘downplayed the court case every step of the way’ and the heartbroken mum said she felt ‘utterly stupid for believing him’.
A source told Metro.co.uk at the time: ‘She is absolutely floored by what’s happened with Sammy.’
‘Sammy completely downplayed the court case every step of the way and led her to believe he hadn’t done anything too serious and he would get a suspended sentence.
‘Now she knows the full horror of the crime. She is broken. She feels desperately sorry for the two men he scammed and whose lives he ruined.’
Dani, the daughter of EastEnders actor Danny Dyer, took a break from social media to focus on her son, him being ‘the only thing that matters.’
Here’s hoping this fresh start leads to happier times for the mum.
