Dannii: Motherhood has changed my style

Dannii Minogue has had to alter her dress sense since becoming a mother.

The Australian beauty gave birth to son Ethan Edward in July and while she and partner Kris Smith are enjoying every moment of parenthood, she now has to be careful with what she wears because the tot can quite easily ruin her clothes.

She said: "I've just been laughing, because mostly when I dress, I like plain colours but now I'm thinking prints are good because you will pick him up and he will vomit down the back of your shoulder, so plain clothing is quite dangerous after a feed."

Dannii also revealed she is no hurry to lose all her baby weight as she wants to spend all her free time with Ethan and Kris.

She told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: "I have been trying to spend 24/7 with Ethan and I haven't had the energy to do anything but just get through that. I always said I just want to focus on being a mother and when I can get back around to it, I'll work out but I'm not going to rush into it. Going back to work is so far from my mind at the moment.

"I know my body is completely different to what it was before but I don't care. I loved being pregnant, I loved my body changing and my belly growing - it was amazing, I had never been that confident having my picture taken.

"In fact, when I was pregnant, it was the most calm I've ever been. It's just beautiful; you're just in love with your body and everything going on because it's your little baby inside."
