It’s been a tough year for Dannii Minogue. The singer and former X Factor judge split with long-term love Kris Smith in April amid rumours she’d had an affair with Simon Cowell.
We recently reported that the couple are back together, but during the split Dannii says it was only thanks to their son 2-year-old Ethan, that she found the strength to go on.
“Life has been full of certainties and surprises but, even with the changes, I know I am incredibly lucky, and wake up each day feeling blessed with my beautiful baby boy there,” Dannii told InStyle Australia. “When I tuck him into bed, I’ll hear this little voice yell out, ‘I love you more!’”
“He knows if he says something with particular timing he can make you laugh, melt or whatever. I guess that’s the Minogue performer inside him!”
Dannii realises that media attention not only affects her, but also those around her, including families that attend the same daycare centre as her son.
“I understand media interest comes part and parcel with my work, but there are others who never signed up for this," she said. "[Paparazzi] have long-lens cameras pointed at their children at the entrance [of the centre].”
We’re just glad to hear Dannii and Kris are back together.
