The family appeared to be making the most of the British sunshine as sat out in the garden.

Back in February, Danny previously left fans gushing over his grandson.

Just weeks after Santi’s birth, the soap star shared his first picture with the tot on Instagram.

The photo showed Danny holding his tiny grandson, who was just a newborn baby at the time.

He captioned the post: “This grandson of mine…”

Dani then commented: “He loves you so much.”

He’s been so emotional around Santi

Meanwhile, Dani recently opened up about her dad and Santi during an interview.

She told OK! magazine: “He’s been so emotional around Santi. Literally the other day he was nearly crying like, ‘I love babies and that, but your baby… I’ve never felt anything like this’.

“Santiago’s his first grandchild and I feel like that’s hit him more after the birth.”
