Dannii shows off new baby Ethan

Dannii Minogues has released the first pictures of her new baby Ethan – her first child with British boyfriend Kris Smith, 31 - on twitter so all her fans can meet the new arrival.

She wrote: “Hey everyone thanks for all your wishes, we are loving baby Ethan and Kris is the best dad in the world. X”

Meanwhile proud aunt Kylie has been in touch with the new mum via webcam, it has been revealed.

The Australian star couldn’t wait until she had finished her European promotional tour for new album ‘Aphrodite’ to meet Ethan – who was born in Melbourne on Monday – so the siblings took to their laptops and beamed the baby across the web.

And the 'All the Lovers' singer was delighted with her new nephew.

A source said: “When Kylie saw Ethan she said, ‘He’s gorgeous.’ ”

Kylie is expected to head home to Australia later this month to meet her nephew in person.

The 41-year-old pop star previously confessed seeing Dannii, 38, pregnant made her broody.

The singer - who is currently dating Spanish model Andres Velencoso - said: “I'm not jealous but it does make me think, 'Aw, yeah!' I can't contain myself."
