Dani Dyer 'hoping for fairy tale Christmas proposal' from footballer Jarrod Bowen

Dani Dyer is said to be hoping her footballer boyfriend Jarrod Bowen will get down on one knee for Christmas.

The Love Island star, 26, is reportedly wishing for a festive fairy tale proposal after feeling like she's found with 'The One' with the West Ham United player, 25.

Jarrod has proved a hit with Dani's family, even her famously tough dad Danny Dyer said the footballer is "amazing" with her 18-month-old son Santiago.

And now the television personality is said to be keeping her fingers crossed an engagement is on the horizon after putting her £725,000 home up for sale to move in with the football player.

"Dani and Jarrod are so loved-up, they recently celebrated a year together and the time has gone so fast, Jarrod treats her so well and he’s amazing with her little boy Santiago. Dani’s family love him and know she’s found a good one," a source told OK! Magazine.

“Dani definitely thinks he’s The One and she’d love a ring on her finger. They’re in a really happy place and she knows there’s no need to rush things, but she would love for him to propose and friends think it could be on the cards.

“A Christmas engagement would be lovely, she’s had a tough time in past relationships but she’s finally got her fairy tale.”

Mirror Online has contacted Dani's representatives for comment.

Jarrod and Dani first went public with their relationship last December after finding love together.

Their romance came after Dani split from the father of her son Sammy Kimmence after he went to prison for conning elderly pensioners out of £34,000 in 2021.

Dani discussed the struggles she faced after giving birth to Santiago with BBC's Tiny Happy People back in April.

She explained that she has relied on the support of her EastEnders star dad Danny Dyer, 45, and mum Joanne Mas, 45, since becoming a single mother.

Dani said: "The way they have been there for me is honestly just such a dream. There have been some long nights, if Santi's not been well, where I really struggled and I've just needed to have a chat or a sleep in the afternoon. And they've been there for me. Knowing I've got them, I am blessed with that."

Dani first rose to fame when she competed on Love Island back in 2018, after having a glimpse into the spotlight thanks to her dad Danny Dyer being a well-known actor.

She won the series with then-boyfriend Jack Fincham but the pair ended up splitting nine months after leaving the villa.
