Dani is the daughter of Eastenders actor Danny Dyer, who posted "Can't stop smiling."

The couple, who have been dating since 2021, revealed in January that they were expecting twins. 

Jarrod - who will be playing in a European final next month - first came to prominence as a 17-year-old when he helped Hereford United escape relegation from the National Conference in 2014, including scoring in a 3-2 win over Alfreton Town at Edgar Street (pictured below.)

Hereford Times:

Financial issues of the pitch led to the Bulls being demoted two leagues due to new owner Tommy Agombar being unable to pay a bond to the Conference.

United would eventually be wound up in the High Court in December 2014, with Hereford FC being formed in its wake the following year.

As for Bowen, his stock just rose. He signed for then Premier League club Hull in the summer of 2016, scoring his first goal for them a year later. 


He was particularly prolific in the Championship after the Tigers dropped into the second tier, claiming the club's player fo the year prize in May 2019.

Bowen's progress was spotted by a number of clubs, and he joined West Ham during the January transfer window of 2020 for an initial £18 million.

During the 2021/22 season, he scored 18 Premier League goals, which led to him earning his first England cap on May 24, 2022. 

This season hasn't gone the Hammers' way, although they have reached the final of the Europa Conference League where they will face Italian side Fiorentina on June 7 in Prague.
