I might have found a trick.

Put a layout like that:

<!--  DATE  -->
    AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0, 0.5, 0.1, 1"
    BackgroundColor="{x:StaticResource NL_OrangeBeer}"
            AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0.5, 0.5, 1, 1"
            FontFamily="{extension:FontFamily Roboto_Light}"
            Text="{Binding DaySelected}"
            VerticalTextAlignment="Center" />
            AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0.5, 0.5, 1, 1"
            Date="{Binding CurrentDate}"
            MinimumDate="{Binding CurrentDate}"
            Opacity="0" />

So behind, in the C# part, you will need a `public DateTime CurrentDate { get; set; }`. Initialize it like that => `CurrentDate = DateTime.Now();`

Second, you will need the selected/current day (DaySelected).
public string DaySelected
    get { return String.Format("{0}", CurrentDate.Day); }

PS: I do CurrentDate.Day but you can do DateTime.Now().Day, the thing is, if you update from the date picker CurrentDate, then it does the update properly ;)
