X Factor judge Dannii Minogue is set to have her first baby, as it's been announced she is pregnant.

Dannii and her boyfriend, rugby player Kris Smith, told the world their good news after Dannii was given a check-up to see that everything was OK.

There had been rumours over the weekend that the singer and presenter was expecting a child.

It's not clear exactly when Dannii is due to give birth, but it should be some time in the summer.
