Dani Dyer gushes over best year ever as baby son Santiago approaches first birthday
Love Island favourite Dani Dyer has shared a gushing post with her 3.4 million followers saying it’s been the “best year ever” as her baby son Santiago approaches his first birthday.
The reality star, 25, shared the sweet snap of herself and Santi in her arms on her Instagram page. The almost-one year old looks adorable as he leans on his mum’s face and is dressed in a cute black tracksuit.
Dani looks stunning as she smiles for the camera and has her long blonde hair tied up. She is matching Santi wearing a black sweatshirt.
She captioned the adorable shot with a gushing message to her adorable son.
She wrote: “Can’t believe this time in 2 weeks my baby will be 1 [crying face emoji]
Where has this time gone sants? We have had the best year together (hard at times [laughing face emoji]) but I have loved every second being your mummy.”
Fans rushed to the post to share their comments.
One wrote: “Time really does fly!” While a second penned: “Awww he is so adorable” followed by four red heart emojis.
And a third said: “This is so cute” followed by a heart eyes emoji and red heart emoji.
Dani’s son Santiago is approaching the milestone of his first birthday on Sunday 23 January after being born during the lockdown.
She announced her son's arrival as she shared gorgeous pictures of her little boy and she planted a kiss on him from her hospital bed.
Love Island star Dani wrote in the caption: "Weighing 7 pound.. We are in a complete baby bubble and enjoying every moment, can not believe he is ours, completely in love and so grateful to be his mummy..
"Sending all my love to all the other mommas to be out there in lockdown.. the best experience ever will never forget this day.”
Dani welcomed Santiago with her ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence and she has since brought up her son as a single mum after Sammy was jailed to 42 months after scamming two victims out of £34,000.
The star has always been open about her motherhood journey on social media, but it took a bad turn after some mum-shamers inundated her with nasty comments about how long it has taken Santiago, 11 months, to start crawling.

But she responded with: "Santi has only just started crawling…" she began to write in an Instagram Q&A. "He waves and claps his hands, but every baby is different, I had a few mums with the negative opinions on how their baby was crawling by six months.
"And there is NO need to ever compare babies, they are all at their own pace."
