According to Daily Mail Australia, Dani will retire from her yachting career to focus on motherhood. “I think seven years [in yachting] was enough,” she told the outlet. “It’s a lot of time and I’m just looking forward to having a normal life now. Below Deck was the perfect way to end that stage of my life, go out with a bang, and now back to a normal life, a normal job, hopefully finish my nursing degree soon… By soon I mean in a couple of years at least!”

Dani revealed she is pregnant with her first child.

The 33-year-old shared the news of her pregnancy on Instagram, revealing her baby bump along with the caption, “It’s just you and I little baby.” Since the announcement that Dani is expecting, rumors have been swirling as to who the baby’s father could be. So far, Dani has remained tight-lipped.

Some suspect it could be her Below Deck costar, Jean-Luc Cerza Lanaux, with whom she had a “boatmance” during filming. “When we were playing Truth or Dare and he said that he fancied me,” she revealed during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, “I don’t know, it just made me look at him differently.”

To add even more drama to the situation, a Bravo gossip Instagram account, Bravo and Cocktails, posted an unverified claim supposedly confirming that Jean-Luc is the father but wants no involvement with the baby.

The submission reads, “Ahhhhhh someone posted in a group on Facebook that Dani on Below Deck Sailing is knocked up by Jean-Luc and he wants nothing to do with the baby. They gave 0 evidence so I have no clue if it’s true, but I figured as you know all, you would be the place to turn [to] if there was some evidence hanging around.”

Keep tuning in to Below Deck Sailing Yacht Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
