In today’s nugget of totally random, totally unexpected, but totally amazing news, it turns out Keira Knightley used to babysit Danny Dyer‘s daughter Dani for a bit of pocket money before she got all famous and whatnot.
WHAT A DAY TO BE ALIVE.
No, it’s not April Fools’ Day. Yes, Keira did really read bedtime stories to Dani and tell her not to let the bedbugs bite, way before she started starring in some of the world’s most successful films.
We assume her audition tape was reminscent of Joey’s dramatic reading of ‘Love You Forever’ in Friends.
Danny reportedly paid Keira a few pounds an hour to babysit like Beckham before telling her to ‘get aht of my house’.
Fine, okay, he probably didn’t say that, but just imagine.
Dani, 18, has recalled their babysitting sessions, revealing: “Back then Keira was starting out just the same as I am now. It was only when I got older I realised how much of a big deal it was.
“She was really nice and fun, and let me stay up past my bedtime, but we didn’t tell my parents. Sometimes she let me have sweets too. I would love to see her again and see if she remembered me.”
Well, we wouldn’t expect anything less from lovely Keira, right?
The absence of a babysitter these days doesn’t mean Dani can get away with anything though, as she admitted: “I get grounded and get my phone taken away.
“I wasn’t allowed home later than 11pm. So I’d say I was staying at my friend’s, and we’d pretend to be her mum on the phone, but it never worked.”
We definitely never tried that either. Nope. Never.
The morals of the story are, Keira was a wonderful babysitter, we’re very jealous that she was never available to babysit us, and MAYBE, Dani will one day look after Keira’s daughter.
