Dani, the daughter of EastEnders actor Danny Dyer, announced the birth of Santiago on social media, saying: “After a very long day and night finally our special little boy arrived 23/01/2021 … Weighing 7 pound.
“We are in a complete baby bubble and enjoying every moment, can not believe he is ours, completely in love and so grateful to be his mummy..
“Sending all my love to all the other mommas to be out there in lockdown.. the best experience ever will never forget this day.”
Today Kimmence admitted posing as a financial investor to scam two pensioners out of £34,000.
The 25-year-old duped Peter Martin, 90, and Peter Haynes, 80, after persuading the vulnerable pensioners to allow him to invest their money for them.
His victims were said to have been clients at a legitimate investment company where Kimmence previously worked.
Portsmouth Crown Court heard Kimmence took the clients on when the business stopped operating, falsely claiming he was authorised to provide financial services.
LOVE ISLAND STAR’S BEAU
Now Kimmence, who pleaded not guilty to all the charges last week, faces a possible prison sentence after a last minute change of plea this morning.
The judge warned him his offences were so serious he could be sent to jail when he is sentenced on June 11.
Kimmence, from Essex, pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud, totalling £33,919.
Standing in the dock dressed in a black suit with a blue tie, he spoke only to confirm his name and plead guilty to each charge.
The court heard Kimmence, used one of his victims’ bank cards to withdraw more than £1,200 for himself and also racked up credit card charges of more than £1,300.
He also admitted to getting Mr Martin to transfer him £22,912 on one occasion, and £400 on another. He conned Mr Haynes in a similar way out of £7,927.
Mr Martin died in November last year aged 91, while Mr Haynes suffers from Alzheimer’s.
Craig Harris, defending, said of Kimmence: “He is a relatively young man of previous good character, the offences go back into his late teenage years.
“This is a case that crosses the custodial threshold but might be within a range which I argue could be suspended.
“Quite a lot has gone into this young man’s life in the last few years. He is seeking to reimburse the losses he has caused.”

Before Dani went into the Love Island villa, she and Kimmence had a relationship that ended in a series of rows.
Once she left the villa and her romance with Jack Fincham came to an end, they rekindled their romance.
On April 23, 2019, The Sun exclusively revealed the pair had rekindled their romance after being spotted embracing in public.
