Speaking on Sorted with the Dyers podcast alongside his eldest daughter Dani, he said: ‘The midwife was a very, very handsome man.
‘She [Joanne] talks about him, which is weird in a way. The weird thing was I fancied him and all.
‘Imagine if he’d have called on a threesome. All right, not during birth obviously.’
Danny married Jo in September 2016, after she proposed to him on Valentine’s Day the year before. The couple have been together since they were teenagers.

The actor often speaks openly about his family and again chatted about his wife when he revealed he’s excited for Jo to turn into her mother, Carol, as she gets older, as he joked he is ‘in love’ with his other half’s mother.
Speaking on his podcast, Danny said that he thinks he’s ‘more in love’ with his ‘mother-in-law than his wife’.
He said: ‘You know a lot of men don’t like their mother-in-laws… I think I’m more in love with my mother-in-law than my wife.
‘I do love her very, very much. What they say is you look at your wife and then you look at your mother-in-law and that’s what your wife will turn into.

‘I can’t wait for my wife to turn into Carol.’
Danny’s also spoke about his dad on a recent episode of the show, revealing that his name is actually Danial Dyer – because his father misspelt Daniel on his birth certificate when he was ‘off his nut’.
He explained that he thinks his dad Antony was ‘battered’ when he was given the responsibility of filling in his birth certificate, and as a result his moniker was accidentally set as Danial rather than the conventional spelling of Daniel.
He said: ‘I did change my name, because my name is Danial. My old dad, and I love him very much, is old school…

‘He was off his nut’: While the star also revealed his real name is DANIAL because his ‘bladdered’ dad Antony (pictured) misspelled the moniker on his birth certificate
‘He agreed to the name Daniel but he spelt it Danial – D-A-N-I-A-L. It could’ve been a mix of things – that he was battered, that he doesn’t spell. It could’ve been a bit of both.’
Danny was born in Custom House, East London, in 1977 and his parents split up when he was just aged nine
The Dyers are now preparing for the imminent arrival of Dani’s first child with her beau Sammy Kimmence.

Ahead of welcoming his first grandchild Danny revealed he’s nicknamed the unborn child ‘the chav’, a term often used to describe anti-social lower-class youths.
However, Love Island champ Dani appeared to take the comment in stride as she chatted with her screen star father on their podcast about her due date.
During their chat, Danny excitedly declared: ‘The Chav’s coming – it’s on its way!’
Dani asked her dad if he would be on hand to support her through labour, prompting Danny to respond: ‘As long as it’s nice and quick for you, it doesn’t matter if I’m in the waiting room or indoors with my feet up eating some crisps.’
