Danny Dyer reveals what he really thinks about daughter Dani dating a West Ham football player
Danny Dyer has revealed he took little convincing the first time that he met daughter Dani’s West Ham player boyfriend Jarrod Bowen.
As a proud Hammers fan himself, the former EastEnders actor says he “couldn’t have picked a better human being” and claims he still gets “starstruck” whenever he comes over to visit.
Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show this Saturday, Danny, 45, was asked his thoughts about Bowen, especially as he is set to make him a grandpa again with Dani currently pregnant with identical twin girls.
“West Ham until I die,” Danny told host Ross. “You can’t tell them who to fall in love with… all of a sudden she’s brought home a West Ham player. I couldn’t have hand picked a better human being, he’s beautiful. He comes round and I get all star struck.”
Dani is already mum to two-year-old son Santiago from her previous relationship with ex Sammy Kimmence.
Danny clearly relishes his role as a grandfather, saying of young Santiago: “He’s beautiful, he’s such a lovely little boy. She’s [daughter Dani] pregnant again with twins. Identical girls. So I’m going to have three grandkids under three by f***ing May.”
Adding: “It’s petrifying. I am over the moon. It’s weird when your kid’s pregnant. You worry about them. It’s a miracle the whole thing, especially with twins.
“I thought, when you become a grandfather, your kids have grown up and f***ed off. Whereas I’m still bringing up a 9-year-old son, I’ve got a 15-year-old daughter and grandkids.”
The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday at 21:40pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
