After finishing her A-levels, Danielle was given the chance to represent the United Kingdom in Miss Hawaiian Tropic, which led to her landing many modeling jobs. But she was more interested in acting and enrolled in courses at Guildhall in London. She made her acting debut in Calendar Girls at the Bristol Hippodrome in 2011. She appeared in the successful BBC One drama Silent Witness and the film We Are the Freaks in 2013. She also starred in the football film Kicking OFF and the criminal television series Aquarius. In 2019, she co-starred in the comedy film The Wedding Year with Sarah Hyland (of the contemporary family).
Their refusal to have children tore their seven-year marriage apart.
Danielle and Gary began dating in 2007 after being set up on a blind date, and they married on September 2, 2009, in Ravello, Italy. But, after seven years of marriage, they announced their divorce, citing Gary as the cause. Gary did not want to have any more children, but Danielle did. Gary believed he was too old to have children. Gary already has four adult children, Tobias, Angus, George, and Harry, whom he shares with his ex-wife Michelle Cockayne. He divorced Michelle after they had been married for two decades.
She maintains contact with her ex-husband.
Despite her divorce from Gary, she maintains contact with him and remains friendly with him. Gary admits to chatting to his ex-girlfriend Danielle three times a day and texting her often. When Danielle was in London, she remained at his apartment, and he saw Danielle whenever he was in Los Angeles.
Gary recently greeted her 42nd birthday, calling her a lovely woman and sharing a photo of them from their past. Danielle still gives Gary fashion advice. He added that Danielle has excellent fashion sense and still advises him now. She is constantly there to provide him with another point of view that he values.
She has moved on with her now-husband.
Danielle began dating her now-husband, American lawyer Nate Greenwald, shortly after arriving in Los Angeles to pursue her acting career. Danielle announced her marriage to Greenwald in the summer of 2018 in a covert ceremony in Nantucket, Massachusetts, in November 2019, posting vintage photos of her wedding on Instagram.
After 15 years, she became a mother for the second time.
Danielle is the delighted mother of two girls, Ella and Romy Wren. Ella, her oldest daughter from a previous relationship, is 20 years old. She revealed in February 2017 that she was expecting her first child with Greenwald, Romy Wren, and had her second daughter, Romy Wren, in August.
Romy weighed 8.5 pounds when she was born. According to Danielle, being a mother after a 15-year gap was both exhilarating and difficult. She claims that having to give birth becomes more difficult as you grow older. She also said that her older daughter helps her much in caring for her younger sister Romy while she is not at school. As a mother, she wants to be a role model for her girls, showing them that women can kick ass and accomplish anything they want.
Danielle’s net worth is believed to be between $1 million and $5 million as of November 2022. We also have the net worth of her ex-husband Gary, who is one of England’s most accomplished strikers with three teams, Leicester City, Everton, and Tottenham Hotspur.
