Love Island star Dani Dyer said she sometimes finds it “hard” parenting alone, after boyfriend Sammy Kimmence was jailed.
Dani Dyer admitted during an Instagram Q&A it can be “hard” being a single mum to baby boy Santiago, after her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence was sentenced to 42 months in prison.
The Love Island 2018 star and Sammy welcomed their little boy at the start of the year.
After her boyfriend was sentenced to jail for scamming two pensioners out of £34,000, Dani jetted off to Spain for some much-needed time away.
And in a chat with her fans she said she’s grateful to have her family around her to help with parenting, but it hasn’t been all plain sailing.
When a fan asked if she “struggles on her own with a baby,” Dani said her family have been “amazing.”
She replied: “I have such an amazing support system! Which I’m so grateful for they give me so much help when needed and I think I need to realise I shouldn’t be ashamed to ask for help…if I need a few hours off then I won’t feel bad to ask anymore…
“Don’t get me wrong it is hard but I am so lucky that I’ve got an amazing family who love Santi so much.”
Sammy was jailed in July after conning two men, aged 80 and 90, out of more than £34,000.
He will spend three and a half years behind bars.
Dani is yet to directly address her boyfriend’s prison sentence, but while on holiday with her family she celebrated her 25th birthday, which her dad marked with a sweet Instagram tribute, writing: “Me and you against the world baby….we thrive when we face adversity.”
