London, Jan 10 (IANS) Australian singer Dannii Mingoue is expecting her first baby this summer.
The star, who is a judge on Simon Cowell’s British singing contest “The X Factor”, is said to be expecting her first child with her rugby player boyfriend Kris Smith, reports The Daily Mirror newspaper.
The news has increased speculation she may leave the judging panel on the British show, alongside Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh.
“It would be completely understandable if she wanted to take time off to bond with the baby rather than trying to juggle the auditions with the demands of motherhood. At present, she’s not even thinking that far ahead. She is over the moon at being pregnant and can’t stop smiling,” said a source.
In October 2009, Minogue revealed Smith “would love a baby” and asks her “on a daily basis” to start their own family.
Her superstar sister Kylie is said to be “so excited” about the news.
