Dani Dyer 'so proud' of Jarrod Bowen as he scores last-minute winner in West Ham final

Dani Dyer has shared a gushing tribute to boyfriend Jarrod Bowen following the footballer's success on the pitch this evening.

Jarrod scored a last-minute winner for West Ham which saw the London club beat Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final tonight - bagging the club their first European trophy for 58 years.

Former Love Island star Dani, who recently welcomed twin daughters into the world with Jarrod, was watching at home on TV as her beau delighted Hammers across the country with his important goal.

Taking to her Instagram Stories just moments on from West Ham clinching the trophy, the mum-of-three posted a snap of Jarrod conducting a post-match interview and shared her happiness.

"So proud," Dani captioned the shot of her TV, alongside a crying-face emoji and trio of love hearts.

West Ham United have ended a wait of nearly 60 years for European glory thanks to Dani's boyfriend, who was the one to bag the all important winning goal in the dying minutes of the match in Budapest.

Ahead of the game kicking off earlier this evening, Dani shared how she was getting into the spirit of things with a sweet tribute to her partner with the help of her three children.

The eldest child of former EastEnders actor Danny Dyer showed her support for Jarrod with an adorable snap of their twin girls in West Ham kits.

The newborn babies, who arrived on 22 May, were joined by their older brother Santiago, two, Dani’s son with ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

Proud Dani, 26, shared the cute photo on Instagram with her 3.7 million followers along with the caption: "Good luck to our daddy & jayjay tonight we love you."

Dani and the footballer first went public with their relationship in December 2021 after finding love together - much to the delight of Dani's West Ham supporting father.

"He's invested in all of the West Ham players – because he supports the team and follows some of them," Dani explained when discussing what the former EastEnders actor thinks of Jarrod last year.

She continued to tell The Sun : "He's like: "They're all my friends." I'm like: "Right, OK, Dad."'

"Everything is so early days. Jarrod is a lovely guy and we're enjoying getting to know each other."

Danny was seemingly getting ready for the big West Ham game earlier today, as The Football Factory actor was spotted running some errands and doing a spot of shopping ready for kick-off.

The dad-of-three became a grandfather for a second time last month, thanks to daughter Dani welcoming twin daughters into the world with Jarrod.

Dani shared a snap of the identical twins on Instagram to announce the happy news, writing: "Can’t stop smiling."

The Love Island 2018 winner announced her pregnancy to fans at the start of this year.

"We have been keeping a little secret..." she said on Instagram in January. "Our little TWINS. So excited to meet our babies and watch santi be the best big brother..

"The biggest surprise of our lives but feeling SO blessed.. our family is getting a lot bigger and we can’t wait."

In the snap, her eldest child Santiago held up a sign which read: "I'm going to be a big brother to twins."

The reality TV star shares Santiago with her conman ex Sammy Kimmence - who was sentenced to three years in jail in July 2021.

Dani split with the father of her first child after discovering the full extent of his crimes in 2021 - which included posing as an investor and scamming pensioners out of thousands of pounds of their savings - after he had previously convinced her otherwise.

Sammy has since been released from prison.

Dani was previously in a relationship with fellow Love Island winner Jack Fincham but the pair split shortly after being crowned winners of the ITV2 show in 2018.
