Seven months after giving birth to baby Ethan, the singer turned talent judge is looking great and feeling even better!
Modelling a vibrant summer dress, Dannii Minogue is a stunning picture of health and happiness. It’s hard to believe that just seven months ago she gave birth to her baby boy, Ethan. Looking better than ever after pegging back the 22kg she gained during her pregnancy, Dannii, 39, says she’s taking a slow and steady approach to getting back into shape.
“I have just about lost all of the pregnancy weight, but I haven’t been exercising much,” the Australia’s Got Talent and The X Factor judge told UK magazine Glamour. “I haven’t had the time or the energy. I’ve done one exercise session! But running around burns calories and so does the no-sleep thing.”
Dannii conceded it was certain she would put on weight as soon as she and her partner, Kris Smith, were told they were having a baby, and immediately decided to relax her usual strict diet and exhaustive workouts.
“When I got pregnant, I started eating sweet things for the first time and I haven’t stopped,” Dannii jokes. “I read this article that said I was on turkey broth and crazy exercising every day. I don’t eat meat and I’ve been eating lemon pie.”
Dannii has, however, always maintained a healthy lifestyle, and during the pregnancy, tried to keep as fit as possible. “In London I like walking along the Thames,” she said at the time. “When I’m in Melbourne I love doing the 1000 steps in the Dandenong Ranges. It just makes me want to exercise.”
