Dani Dyer has ruled out carrying on a family tradition following giving birth to her first son.

The 24 year old announced on Sunday night that she had welcomed a baby boy with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

Former Love Island winner Dani revealed she would be breaking the tradition as she met up with some of her fellow islanders last year.

Speaking on Love Island: What Happened Next, she said: "Everyone has this thing that I'm gonna call the baby Danny. That is not going to happen.

"It's like, 'it's such a Dani Dyer thing to then call her baby Danny Dyer'," she then continued to tell her pals.

However, during a question and answer session with her Instagram followers during her pregnancy, she admitted her and Sammy, 25, had settled on a name for their baby boy.


She told fans: "Yes we have agreed on a boy's name but cannot agree on a girl's name!

"I like really unusual names but Sammy won't have it," she continued, adding she wanted to pay tribute to singer Ariana Grande.

"Honestly, the first thing I said is 'I'm calling it Ariana if it's a girl!'," she told fans.
