"I've always been a girlie girl, even when I used to spend hours everyday playing RPG. When [I found] out I was pregnant, all I really wanted was a healthy baby and didn't really care about anything else. But now, I'm looking forward to having my little girl and developing that mother and daughter relationship," she wrote on Instagram on May 12.
The big news of the baby's sex received lots of excited comments from the extended Bravo family. Below Deck chef Rachel Hargrove, commented, "Looking good mama." Meanwhile, Below Deck deckhand Izzy Wouters also commented, "The luckiest little girl to have you as mama."
On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week, before Dani confirmed she is having a daughter, her pal and fellow Below Deck Sailing Yacht stew, Alli Dore, opened up about how excited she is for her friend to become a mom. "I've known for a while, actually. Dani and I speak nearly every day, so I've known for quite a few months [that she's pregnant]. And I was absolutely elated for her. I mean, doing it on her own, she's the bravest woman in the world," she said on WWHL on May 10.
Dani first confirmed she is pregnant in a baby bump-baring Instagram post on April 24. “It's just you and I little baby,” Dani wrote in the caption alongside the photo, also adding a heart emoji.
