X Factor beauty Dannii Minogue is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Kris Smith.
The 38-year-old brunette has announced the happy news through her spokesperson, confirming that she and her rugby player beau are "very excited" about the arrival of their child, which is due in July.
"Danni and Kris are very excited and can't wait to start their family in 2010," a representative for the parents-to-be said.
"Rumours and stories surfaced across the weekend about Dannii being pregnant and having her twelve week scan. Those stories were incorrect.
"Dannii had her 12 week scan this week and was given the results today with the all clear to make an announcement."
The petite star has made no secret of her desire to settle down with Kris, 31, who she has described as the love of her life, and recently revealed she felt ready to start a family.
And with that dream coming true, the Melbourne-born beauty couldn’t wait to share the big news with her fans.
"Woo hoo I'm gonna be a mummy!" the singer wrote on her Twitter page.
