DANI Dyer has revealed her dream of baby son Santiago “being Billy Elliot in the West End” as she admitted to planning his career years in advance.
The 24-year-old star and boyfriend Sammy Kimmence welcomed their little boy at the end of January.
Dani shared her dreams of son Santiago becoming a West End star
Dani has been keeping fans updated on her experiences with motherhood – and was left inspired this morning as she watched her “favourite film of all time”.
Filming herself in her pyjamas as she cuddled snoozing Santiago in bed, Dani shared: “I literally love our morning cuddles together.
“I’m watching Billy Elliot and I just think… Imagine if he was Billy Elliot on the stage?
“I’d love it, I’d love him to be in the West End performing.”
She admitted it was a little early to be thinking about his career

Giggling, the Love Island favourite added: “I don’t know why I’m thinking about his career path, it’s literally years, years, years away. I’m just excited for it.”
She then shared a video of the 2000 film playing on her TV, writing: “My favourite film of all time”, with the smash hit also being turned into a stage production.
If Santi does choose a career in the limelight, then he will be following in his family’s footsteps.

She also had dreams of acting, and starred in some minor roles before becoming a TV personality.
However, Danny was less thrilled about his daughter being famous, recently admitting that he didn’t speak to her for weeks when she told him she’d signed up for the ITV2 show.

Speaking on podcast Sorted With The Dyers, Dani said: “He didn’t like me. We didn’t really talk. It was very awkward. Oh my god, I’d walk into the room and it would be so awkward.”
But Danny clarified that he was unhappy because he felt like he was the last to know about her decision.
He said: “I set you off, I put your suitcase in the boot all f***ing angry and I said ‘go on just f***ing go and do what you got to do.'”
