Dannii Minogue, 38, has confirmed that she is expecting her first child with her rugby player boyfriend, Kris Smith, 31.
She made the announcement, which followed days of internet speculation, after receiving the results of her 12-week ultrasound scan.
Dannii and Kris are ‘very excited’ about the baby, due in July.
Dannii told her Twitter followers: ‘Woo hoo I’m going to be a mummy!’
Kris responded: ‘Woo hoo I’m going to be a daddy!’
Added sister Kylie: ‘Congratulations to my sister Dannii and her partner Kris on the happy news!!!! I am so excited to be an Aunty again!! WOW WOW WOW!! xxx’
Earlier, a spokesman for the couple said, “Dannii and Kris are very excited and can’t wait to start their family in 2010.”
Dannii had recently told Piers Morgan she was ready to start a family, saying, “I’ve never been maternal. I almost thought I was going to escape it, and now I’m in a relationship that is just so right, maybe I have to think about it.”
