The reality star, who found fame on Love Island, welcomed little Santiago with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

But it appears his birth was soon overshadowed by Danny’s beloved West Ham after they beat Crystal Palace 3-2.

The east London club are now in with a chance of qualifying for the Champions League this season.

Following the news, Danny took to Instagram to share his delight.

Alongside a photo of the Premier League table, he joked: “I think I can safely say that having my first beautiful Grandson was the second best thing to happen to me this week.

“Come on you f***ing Irons.”

The actor is an avid West Ham fan, having first gone to Upton Park as a youngster.

The social post comes days after Danny congratulated his daughter on welcoming his grandson.

The soap star celebrated becoming a grandad with a gushing tribute to Dani on Instagram.

The amazed actor, who plays Mick Carter in EastEnders, shared: “So my baby had a baby. F**k me we needed some joy this year.

“So proud of you @danidyerxx cannot wait to meet the little beaut.”

The star’s post arrived just minutes after his eldest daughter Dani, 24, announced on Instagram that she had welcomed her son after a long labour.

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Dani revealed the name of her baby boy.

The new mum revealed they have named their first born Santiago and will call him ‘Santi’ for short.

It appears the moniker is a tribute to Dani’s mum Joanne Mas and her Spanish heritage.

Dani confirmed her son’s name while speaking on the latest instalment of her podcast Sorted With The Dyers.
