X Factor judge Dannii Minogue has welcomed her first child – a little boy named Ethan.
The 38-year-old Australian singer gave birth on Monday in Melbourne with her boyfriend rugby star and model Kris Smith, 31, by her side.
"Mother and baby are doing well and dad is very proud." said the couple in a statement.
Just before going into labour she told fans via Twitter she'd be back on the show in the autumn.
She wrote: "Looking forward to catching up on X Factor auditions. Can’t wait to see Simon, Cheryl and Louis again soon – miss them very much."
In January an ecstatic Dannii took to Twitter to share the news of her pregnancy. "Woo hoo - I'm gonna be a mummy!" she declared.
Her sister Kylie is currently in Spain promoting her album Aphrodite, but is thought to be flying Down Under as soon as possible.
