Pregnant Minogue may miss 'X Factor'

Dannii Minogue may miss ‘The X Factor’ to give birth.

The 38-year-old Australian, who has previously won the show with Leon Jackson in 2007, has warned her pregnancy may mean she is not in the UK when the series starts filming.

She told The Sun newspaper: “Simon doesn’t decide until about April what he wants to do with the show.

“I would love to be involved, but I am definitely having my baby in Australia in July so it’s going to be hard to juggle all of that. I need a Wonder Woman suit and a cape.”

The ‘Put the Needle on It’ singer announced last month she was pregnant with ex-rugby player boyfriend Kris Smith, whom she met on holiday in Ibiza in 2008.

Minogue recently admitted that while Smith is relaxed about the pregnancy, she was more panicked about their whole future.

She said: “Kris is so completely broody. I'm totally in a panic about everything - babies, living together and working miles apart. It all seems so complicated.

"I am exploding with happiness. But, hey, it's wonderful to have problems caused by being completely in love.”
