Dani Dyer looked dejected as she ran errands with her six-month-old son Santiago in Essex on Wednesday.
Former Love Island star Dani, 26, had a solemn expression when she stepped out in the middle of the week and was seen unloading her young son from his luxurious white Audi before pulling his pram out of the trunk of the vehicle and attach it to it.
Their release comes two weeks after Dani’s ex and Santiago’s father Sammy Kimmence were sentenced to three years in prison for a £ 34,000 scam.

Earlier in July, con artist Sammy was convicted of a £ 34,000 fraud and sentenced to three years in prison.
Dani has since broken up with Sammy, 25, after lying to him about his crimes.
He tricked 91-year-old Peter Martin and 81-year-old Peter Haynes into persuading vulnerable retirees to let him invest their money for them, then he spent money on expensive restaurants, hotels and clothes.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline earlier this month, a source revealed that a heartbroken Dani is working on his life as a single parent.
“She’s absolutely stunned by what happened with Sammy. She knows she has to make huge changes in her life and she is so helpless …
“All she knows is her baby boy Santiago is the only thing that matters now and she’s trying to figure out how best to care for him as a single parent.”

The source continued, “She needs time to think about it. Sammy has completely downplayed the trial every step of the way.”
Shortly after his conviction, it was revealed that Sammy had misled Dani about the seriousness of the crimes that led him to prepare retirees to fund his lavish lifestyle.
The source said: “He led her to believe that he hadn’t done anything too bad and that he would get a conditional sentence now that she knows the full horror of the crime …
‘She’s broken. She is desperately sorry for the two men he scammed and whose lives he ruined.
Speaking about how she feels now, they said: “She feels completely stupid to have always believed him and she is totally overwhelmed …
“The dreamy little family she thought she had has been shattered and now she’s trying to figure out how best to pick up the pieces.”

Departure: Sammy was seen crying as he was jailed for over three years for ripping off two elderly men over £ 34,000 by posing as a financial investor
His victims were clients of Sammy when he worked as a senior trader at Equine Global Sports Limited, a company which was subsequently put into liquidation.
The company received money from clients that it would use to place horse racing bets on their behalf.
After this company went out of business, he contacted two of his elderly clients and claimed he would continue to invest their money in the same way, but instead used it to finance his lifestyle, pay for restaurants and book a hotel in Ibiza.
