Dannii Minogue admits she was never very good with children until she fell pregnant with her son Ethan three years ago.
Dannii Minogue didn't feel maternal until she had her son three years ago.
The 42-year-old star never imaged she'd be great with children until she fell pregnant in 2010 with Ethan - whom she shares with her ex-partner Kris Smith - and she has loved motherhood ever since.
She explained: ''Before I had my son I didn't feel maternal. I was never, ever thinking about having kids. I was just working and enjoying work. Even when my brother Brendan had his two boys, [sister] Kylie would get on the floor and roll around with them but I was like 'Oh, I don't know how to hold them', and scared of everything.
''But now I love it.''
Dannii, who resides in Australia, has noticed Ethan has picked up bits of the British accent because he's been splitting his time between the UK - where his father lives - and Down Under.
She explained to Stylist magazine: ''He's just spent time with his paternal grandparents and he's started saying words with a Mancunian accent. And then there's the whole 'Is this yo-ghurt or yoghurt?' thing. We just called it yo-yo to get around that one.''
Meanwhile, the brunette beauty has recently sparked rumours she's pregnant with her second child after she was spotted displaying a small baby bump.
