DANI Dyer's dad Danny is said to be "relieved" she's walked away from Sammy Kimmence after he was jailed.
The former Love Island winner dumped her jailbird boyfriend after he was caged for three and a half years for conning OAPs out of £34,000.
The couple welcomed their son Santiago in January and Dani previously stood by her man after he convinced her that his crimes were “not that serious”.
But now Dani has made the brave decision to go it alone as a single mum – and her family are fully supporting her.
"Dani's dad Danny and her whole family are relieved she's walked away," a source told OK!.
"They think this is for the best. They've told her she'll never be alone as a single mum as they'll always help her to raise Santiago."
The Sun has contacted Dani's representative for comment.
Kimmence, 25, was jailed for three years on Wednesday after pleading guilty to conning two OAPs out of £34k.
Insiders said Dani was overcome with sadness for his victims and was attempting to come to terms with the lies she had been told.
A source said: “Sammy had downplayed the court case every step of the way and led Dani to believe he hadn’t done anything too serious.
“And that he would get a suspended sentence.
“Now she knows the full horror of what he did she is broken, she feels desperately sorry for the two men he scammed and whose lives he ruined.”

Kimmence sobbed and called himself "an awful human being" as a judged sentenced him this week.
It came after he posed as a financial investor to defraud two vulnerable victims, 80 and 90, out of their hard-earned cash.
Sleazy Sammy, a stockbroker and amateur football player, persuaded Peter Marin and Peter Haynes to allow him to invest their money for them.
His victims were clients at legitimate investment company Equine Global Sports Limited, where Kimmence worked as a senior trader.
The company received money from customers which it would use to place bets on horse races, on their behalf.
But Portsmouth Crown Court heard Kimmence took the clients on when the business went into liquidation, falsely claiming he was authorised to provide financial services.
One victim was left "living on the breadline" after the dodgy dealer splashed the cash in nightclubs and on a personalised number plate for his Mercedes.
Prosecutor Mike Mason said: "This was a very unpleasant fraud against two men who Mr Kimmence deliberately targeted.
"He targeted them because they were old, they were vulnerable and somewhat isolated.
"This wasn't something he migrated into from a friendship. This was something he planned."
