Love Island 2018: Baby brings Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham closer together

Dani and Jack with the baby.

After a rough patch, Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are brought closer together on Love Island 2018 tonight.

Fresh from their fights over the lie detector, the couple get back on track tonight.

In a favourite Love Island task, each of the couples are given baby dolls to look after for the day.

After some initial protestations, Jack quickly revels in his new role as father, and the experience of co-parenting only brings him and Dani closer together after their rift over the lie detector test earlier in the week.

Content as he cradles baby Kimberley in his arms, Jack reveals: “This is actually like being in the future. I’m sorry this is actually like being in the actual future. Mate, I can’t wait to take her down the park and that. Strolling through the park.”

Dani then poses a big question: “Would you want a baby with me?”

Without hesitation, Jack responds: “Yeah. I said that already. Not now, maybe when I’m about 30 odd. I think we’re going to be really good parents, don’t you?”

As they open up about their views on parenting, Jack tells Dani what sort of father he plans to be: “When I’ve actually got a kid, I want to be a really fun parent. I want to do so much fun stuff. They’re never going to want for anything.

"We’re going to be proper stable. They’re always going to have what they want. I want them to be so polite. I think being polite’s so important.”

Dani also admits she’s keen to emulate the relationship she has with her own mother: “I want her to just be able to tell me everything. How I am with my mum. I want her to be able to do whatever she’s done, be able to confide in me, and for me to always be able to give her the right advice. My mum is strict. And she’s like my best mate.”

In the Beach Hut, Dani expresses her delight at how Jack has adapted to parenthood: “He’s brilliant with her. I feel like I love him more. I can’t believe it. He really loves that baby. This morning he wasn’t warming to her as much as I wanted him to do, and now he doesn’t leave her alone. He really loves her.”

When the girls go out for the afternoon, Dani tells them: “Jack’s definitely warmed up. This morning he was just like bickering with me about it. He was going ‘I don’t know what to do when she’s crying, you can deal with her when she’s crying, you can have her.’ But now, he’s dad of the year. It’s nice, it makes you fancy them I think when they’re good with a baby.”

Left holding the baby, and watching on as Josh and Alex struggle with their own offspring, Jack declares: “I think we’re super dads mate.”

Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
