Danny Dyer looked glum on Wednesday as he paid his daughter Dani a visit after her ex-boyfriend, Sammy Kimmence, was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison.
The EastEnders legend made some time for his 24-year-old daughter and her son, Santiago, after she called it quits on her two-year romance with Kimmence after he was sentenced to 3.5 years in jail for scamming two elderly men, Peter Martin, 91, and Peter Haynes, 81, out of almost £34,000.
The soap star, 43, is said to be relieved that his beloved daughter has ended her relationship with Kimmence after she realised the enormity of his criminal actions.
And now, Danny has proved that he’s there to support his daughter no matter what as he headed for her new pad where she now lives with her baby boy as a single mum.
Danny looked glum as he was pictured hopping into his car on Wednesday.
The TV favourite donned a casual ensemble as she rocked a loose grey t-shirt and some dark denim jeans.
The Mick Carter actor topped off the casual look with a pair of classic sunglasses as he drove in the sweltering UK heatwave.
Danny’s latest appearance comes after reports that the EastEnders star is ‘relieved’ that his daughter has cut all ties from with Kimmence.
Lifting the lid on Dani’s sudden split with the father of her child, a source told New Magazine: “Her whole family, including her dad Danny, are relived she’s decided to move on.
“They’ve told her that no matter what, she will never be alone.”
After being dealt with her ex-boyfriends’ sentence, Dani is now ready to ‘move on’ and concentrate on raising the couple’s baby son Santiago as a single mum.
“Realising Sammy would be in prison for that many years made Dani realise how bad everything was,” the insider added.
“She knew it was time to make a change and move on. She’s ready to be a single mum and embrace this new chapter. She just desperately wants a new start.”
Dani has yet to comment on her ex-boyfriend’s prison sentence.
The Mirror has reached out to Dani’s representatives for comment on this story.
