DANI Dyer and Jarrod Bowen have taken the next step in their relationship as she’s been to his hometown and met the family.
Love Island winner Dani and West Ham footballer Jarrod, both 25, went public with their relationship in October last year.
Now Dani has revealed she’s visited his home town. Speaking during her and dad Danny’s podcast Sorted with the Dyers, she said: “Jarrod is from the Midlands. I went to the Midlands, Leominster.”
It didn’t take long for Jarrod to be a hit with Dani’s family – and the fact that he plays for 44-year-old Danny’s beloved West Ham definitely helped.
On a previous podcast the EastEnders actor joked that he is “more in love” with Jarrod, 25, than his daughter is.
Speaking about Valentine’s Day with Dani the proud dad admitted he was extremely pleased to see her in love with the footballer.
“You are alluding to the fact that you’re in love at the moment?” Danny began. “I know you get very shy around this and maybe one day we will discuss it properly.
“It’s interesting I’m probably more in love with your boyfriend than you are.”
He went on to joke: “West Ham are my one true love. I think I love West Ham more than anything else on this planet.”
Danny also posted a snap of Dani and Jarrod on Instagram and wrote: “If Carlsberg made son in laws…”
Dani – who’s mum to one-year-old son Santiago from her relationship with Sammy Kimmence – confirmed her relationship with Jarrod during an exclusive interview with HOAR.
She said: “Jarrod is a lovely guy and we’re enjoying getting to know each other.
“But Santi will always be my main priority, he will always come first. I am concentrating on being a mum and, beyond that, whatever happens, happens.”
