Dani Dyer has admitted that she's scared to wean her baby son as it's just the two of them after her ex was sent to prison.


The Love Island 2018 winner, 24, confessed that she is worried about giving her six-month-old son Santiago solid foods with nobody else around.

Her ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence, baby Santiago's dad, was jailed for three and a half years earlier this month after conning two vulnerable elderly men out of nearly £34,000.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Dani, who is thought to have dumped Sammy after his sentencing, touched on being on her own now he is in prioson.

She filmed herself feeding Santiago, telling her fans: "So the weaning, it's going really well actually, however, I'm just a bit scared. I genuinely am scared, because it's me and him.

"If I had people around me I would be more confident but because it's me and him, his life is in my hands – do you know?

"If he chokes, what if I don't know what I’m doing? I've done first aid – but what if I forget?"

Dani said she would be sticking to pureed food until she gets more confident with solid food.

She continued: "I've just really been giving him jars, I've done the meals myself and froze them and stuff, but I think at the minute I'm just going to stick to puree and when my confidence gets better.

"You give mummy really bad anxiety, San. It's bad."

Her ex Sammy wept in court as he was jailed for 42 months after scamming two elderly men out of £33,919 by posing as a financial investor.

He duped Peter Martin, 91, and Peter Haynes, 81, by persuading the vulnerable pensioners to let him to invest their money for them and then spent it on expensive restaurants, hotels and clothes.

Judge Timothy Mousley QC gave him 30 months imprisonment for his duping of Mr Martin and 12 months for the fraud against Mr Haynes.

He must serve at least half of that sentence.

The day after Sammy was sentenced, Dani reportedly broke up with him.

A source told the MailOnline : "She is absolutely floored by what's happened with Sammy. She knows she has to make massive changes in her life and she's so distraught…

"All she knows is that her baby boy Santiago is the only thing that matters now and she is trying to work out how best to look after him as a single parent.

"She needs time to think it through. Sammy completely downplayed the court case every step of the way."

Dani is yet to comment on the break-up or Sammy's sentence.
