Dani is expecting her second baby with boyfriend Simon Brough.
It was back in August that Dani announced she was expecting again.
Sharing a sweet family photo that saw Avarie-Belle holding up the baby scan, Dani wrote: “Han Solo had Chewie. Frodo had Sam. Shrek had Donkey.
“Now be prepared for the adventures of Avarie-Belle and as of yet unnamed bump, coming February 2022 (hopefully not to a cinema near you).”
Dani rose to fame playing troublesome Tracy Beaker in the CBBC series based on Jacqueline Wilson’s best selling books about life in a children’s home, nicknamed the Dumping Ground.
Dani starred in the show from 2002 to 2012, as well as a feature-length film named Tracy Beaker’s Movie of Me and three series of Tracy Beaker Returns.
She again returned to the role in special three-part series My Mum Tracy Beaker, which premiered on CBBC in February.
Viewers saw a grown-up Tracy dealing with motherhood after welcoming a daughter.
Dani has also released music and took part in Strictly Come Dancing.
She later opened up about how she’d been fat-shamed during her time on Strictly despite being a trim size 6.
Speaking to Radio Times, she said: “I was like, ‘Holy moly, if I’m fat, God knows what other people must be thinking if they’re bigger than me!’
“That must be just horrible. I can think of things really logically and be like, obviously, I’m not fat, that’s ridiculous.
“This person, obviously, is just bored, or has something wrong with their life that they feel like this is the only way they can get some validation and I actually feel sorry for them.
“So I can kind of put it logically, I guess. But yeah, for kids it must be so hard.”
