The 24-year-old TV star gave birth to her son Santiago on January 23, and she's admitted they're currently inseparable.

During an Instagram video, Dani explained: "All this boy wants today is cuddles. I lay him down and he whimpers, he moans, then he stares at me.

"He literally watched me eat a soup today, watched me the whole time eating. And as soon as I pick him up he just falls asleep and he's snoring away."

Dani subsequently shared a photo of herself with Santiago sleeping in her arms.

The actress - who is the daughter of 'EastEnders' star Danny Dyer - captioned the post: "Been joint to the hip all day, praying I can eat my dinner tonight [laughing emoji] (sic)"

Dani posted the image shortly after revealing she's been struggling with "hot sweats" at night after giving birth to her son.

The 'Love Island' star and her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence have been adjusting to the challenge of parenthood, and Dani admitted she's been experiencing postpartum night sweats.

Opening up about her motherhood experience, Dani said: "I’m telling you now the hot sweats - I get in the night time ... oh my god, the smell under my armpits. I’ve never experienced anything like it. Apparently it’s so normal, you just sweat.

"I wake up and there is a puddle. It’s really bad. What upsets me, is Santi obviously with the breastfeeding he is under my armpit and I think my poor son. It is common - I think it's because of the hormones."

Despite this, Dani is generally relishing the challenge of motherhood.

She said: "I’m getting there now, don’t get me wrong. There are days when I haven’t figured it out, I haven’t showered all day. There was a stage, I remember sitting there all day thinking, 'Am I doing it wrong?'

"In the end I need to take a step back and enjoy him, every baby is different."
