About Danny Simpson
Danny, 33 is a disgraced footballer. This is the second time that he has become a father. He has a daughter named Skye with ex-girlfriend Stephanie Ward. Skye is now 8 years old. But Danny had an arrest in December 2015 after reports of a row in the house in Worsley in Greater Manchester. He was accused of trying to strangulate his ex-girlfriend Stephanie. But he denied the charges before ultimately admitting to them.
His romantic association with Melissa also was a brief one but it resulted in a pregnancy. Melissa’s close friend told:
‘Melissa hasn’t had any outside help or support throughout her pregnancy.
‘She paid for her baby shower herself and has never asked for a penny from Danny.
‘She’s looking forward to raising her daughter as a single mother, and can’t wait to meet her baby.’
So Melissa has become a single mother now. But a friend of Danny stated:
‘Danny and Melissa’s relationship didn’t work out but he has vowed to support her financially and emotionally.
‘They have agreed to co-parent their little girl as best they can. It’s a shame they haven’t worked things out as a couple.’
