Pop superstar Kylie Minogue has spent Christmas with boyfriend OLIVIER MARTINEZ, heightening speculation the couple are ready to settle down and have a family.

The 35-year-old singer and Olivier, 37, flew to her hometown of Melbourne, Australia to spend the festive break with her family.

And rumours of Kylie being pregnant are increasing, especially after she cancelled promotional work for new single SLOW and her album Body Language.

An insider says, "She and Olivier always said they'd be over the moon if she became pregnant.

"Kylie was delighted because she also got to spend Christmas with her sister Dannii as well as her mum CAROL and dad RON."
