Dani Dyer hits back at mum-shaming trolls as she uses sling to carry Santiago

Former Love Island champion Dani Dyer has braced herself for cruel criticism from mum-shamers.

The 24-year-old reality TV star has struggled to deal with horrible online bullies since becoming pregnant, with trolls targeting her online.

But Dani readied herself for another brutal backlash as she announced she was using a new sling for her one-month old baby boy Santiago.

In an adorable new post on her official Instagram profile, Dani said to her 3.4million followers: "My beautiful boy wants a lot of mummy cuddles at the minute.”

She added sarcastically: "Before the sling police start it’s my first time using it."

Dani has been forced to defend herself from mum-shamers before, most notably in November last year when she revealed she had wanted to “sob my heart out” after reading hurtful comments underneath an advert she had starred in for an insurance company.

Speaking to her Eastenders actor dad Danny – on their podcast Sorted with the Dyers – Dani admitted: “They were saying I was going to be a terrible mother.

“They were calling me vulgar, saying ‘she doesn’t deserve happiness’.

“Why don’t I? I wanted to sob my heart out. It hurts.

“What have I done to deserve those comments? I’m just talking about life insurance!”

And her dad hit back with some powerful advice for his daughter.

He stressed: “We have to accept that if we’re going to put our life out there, we’re not into mind control – we cannot make everybody like us.

“This faceless human being has no prospects. This is someone looking up to you saying: ‘How dare you have what I want.

“This person doesn’t know you – how can they comment about you being a s*** mum? They haven’t got a clue.”

He added: “How much to we allow ourselves to give a f*** about what that human being thinks of us?

“This human being sitting in some bedroom in Kidderminster, let’s not give them the power to control our emotions.”

Earlier this month Dani, who won the 2018 Love Island series with former boyfriend Jack Fincham, decided to reassure her fans that Santiago was not “overheating” after posting a photo of him in a padded winter coat.

Now with her new man Sammy Kimmence, Dani joked that she and her new son were joined at the hip, preventing her from eating her dinner properly.

But she recently gushed in a sweet post: "4 weeks ago you came into our lives.. you are worth every sleepless night you give us. So lucky to be your mummy and daddy."
