DanniiiiiiiiDannii Minogue has confirmed rumours that she’s expecting a baby with model Kris Smith.

She’s been dating Smith, a former rugby player since 2008 and there’s been much speculation that they’re going to get hitched.

Last week she denied rumours that she had a bun in the oven which surfaced just before her 12-week scan.

But she announced on her Twitter page today “Woo hoo I’m gonna be a mummy!?

“Dannii and Kris are very excited and can’t wait to start their family in 2010,” their rep told Australian paper the Herald Sun.

“Rumours and stories surfaced across the weekend about Dannii being pregnant and having already had her 12-week scan. These 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.”

It’s unknown whether or not this might affect her X Factor appearances as shooting begins in the summer. It could clear the way for Kelly Rowland to take over though, as she’s already been heavily tipped for a stint on the show.
