Dan went on to praise his girlfriend, who plays Lauren Branning in the BBC soap, in an interview with Star magazine.
"There's not one bad thing I could say about her," he said. "We enjoy each other's company. She's a really lovely girl."
Before news of their pregnancy broke, Dan spoke about how much being a dad to Teddy has changed his life.
"Having Teddy changed my perspective, he makes me want to do better, and be better," the reality star told Heat magazine earlier this week.
"I want him to be proud of me… I'll make sure he has everything he ever needs. Having a baby really changes the way you think about things."
