Reassuring her fan, Dani said: ‘Nooo don’t say that! Honestly none of my clothes fit me. I’m living in leggings and lounge babe, don’t worry. I tried to put my size 8 jeans on and they wouldn’t even go over my leg haha.’

Dani was also asked: ‘Are you worried about having another child incase you need to have a c section again?’ 

She told her followers: ‘I think next time I’m pregnant I definitely try hypnobirthing… and for my second I’m going to try and have a natural labour as they said it’s possible for my second.  

‘However if I end up having a C-section I will definitely be more kinder to myself afterwards and relax more.’

Dani also said it was ‘really difficult to have a proper maternity leave’. 

‘The industry I’m in I think it’s really difficult to take maternity leave. A week later I was back doing my podcast haha! I love what I do so much but sometimes it is hard to juggle things but Santi comes first if he’s having a bad day and needs me then other jobs can wait.’ 

Dani candidly revealed last week that she she feared she was suffering from postnatal depression after several days of struggling with low moods. 

She has openly documented adjusting to motherhood on social media, and candidly revealed last week she’d been struggling with feeling low since the birth of her son. 

Speaking on her podcast Sorted with the Dyers, Dani admitted her moods had sparked fears she was suffering from postnatal depression.

She said: ‘I think when you’ve just had a baby you really start worrying, thinking, “Am I suffering with a bit of postnatal depression?”‘ 

On the show, which she shares with her father Danny Dyer, 43, Dani said that this winter had been ‘awful’.

She explained: ‘The other day I was really struggling, I had a couple of days where I made a shepherd’s pie but I just felt so down.’  

A common problem, post natal depression affects more than 1 in every 10 women within a year of giving birth, according to the NHS. 

Dani continued: ‘I know this sounds weird but I made the shepherd’s pie but it was like I wasn’t making it. 

‘I had a couple of days of just really not feeling me and then I went on a walk and I felt back to myself. I felt so low.’
