Singer is exploding with happiness

Dannii Minogue feared she would never have kids.

But The X Factor judge is now expecting her first baby at the age of 38.

A while ago I went to my doctor for a check-up and he told me I’d got to the stage in my life where I’d have to make decisions about having children,’ explains Dannii.

I remember thinking, “Oh God. I’m now that person who is getting too old to have kids.”

I told him it wasn’t an issue for me because I didn’t have a man, there was no one on the horizon, and there probably never would be.’

Dannii is delighted to be starting a family with boyfriend Kris Smith, 31.

My life has been turned upside down, inside out and everything,’ she tells the Daily Mirror. I mean everything is fresh and new and exciting.

[Kris] has changed everything. He’s changed me and I just feel like the sun is shining every day. It’s amazing.

I found The One and I am exploding with happiness. Kris is so completely broody.

‘I’m totally in a panic about everything – babies, living together and working miles apart. It all seems so complicated.

But, hey, it’s wonderful to have problems caused by being completely in love.’
