Danny Dyer has warned his daughter Dani to ‘live her life’ before settling down and having babies with boyfriend Jack Fincham.
Speaking about his own experience with having kids young, EastEnders actor Danny urged his daughter to have children later on in life.
Danny, who plays Mick Carter in the soap, and his wife Joanne Mas welcomed Dani when they were both 20.
The actor told the Daily Star: “As much as I love Dani, and of course I’m overjoyed we had her, I would advise her to have children later on in life.
“You should live your life first. There are benefits to having kids early, but you lose a lot of your own childhood and self-discovery.”
He added: “It was a 24-hour-a-day thing – the baby put a lot of stress on our relationship.”
But the proud dad said he trusts his daughter and described her as a “loving girl” who has “got her head screwed on right”.
Danny’s comments come after pen salesman Jack vowed to marry Dani, 22, next year.
In an interview with The Sun, Jack said: “We’re getting married next year, 100 per cent.
“Like my mum said to me so many times, ‘When you know about someone, you just know.’ And now I know what she’s talking about. I just know that that’s what we want to do.”
Speaking about their future, Dani added: “It ain’t about planning when we’re gonna have kids. It’s about enjoying a bit of time outside the villa now.
“And when we’re both ready, we will talk about it. Right now I’m just happy to be with him.”
The couple were crowned the Love Island 2018 winners on Monday night.
The couple won over the nation with their blossoming romance after officially becoming boyfriend and girlfriend after just a few weeks in the villa.
But the pair did withheld from getting intimate despite sharing a bed every night for eight weeks.

But Dani said she refused to get hot and steamy under the sheets because she didn’t want to tarnish her dad’s career.
She told the Daily Star: “The other people having sex in the villa didn’t bother me.
“My dad works in the industry and anything I did would have affected him as well.”
