Speaking back in January when she announced her pregnancy, Dani said:


"I still wake up every morning and go, 'I'm pregnant.' It was amazing seeing the scan. I find the whole thing absolutely fascinating. What an amazing, clever thing to be going on inside my body.”

She also said she would follow mother’s lead when it came to raising her own.


"I want to be a fun mum. My mum was really fun and she was a friend as well as a mum. That's what I'd like to have with my child. I know I can tell my mum absolutely anything.


"I think if you can find the balance between respect and friendship, combining all those things into one, that would be perfect."
