Kylie Minogue 'melts' over nephew

KYLIE Minogue "melts" whenever she sees her nephew.

The 'All the Lovers' singer is astonished by how quickly Ethan - the two-month-old son of her sister Dannii Minogue and her boyfriend Kris Smith - is growing and developing.

She said: "I saw Dannii and Kris and baby Ethan three days ago. I can't believe it, but it stands to reason, he's got so much longer already. His legs are starting to fill out and everything.

"I melt, I go to pieces every time I see him - he's gorgeous. Currently Ethan is resembling Kris' father."

The 42-year-old pop star - who is in a relationship with Spanish model Andres Velencoso - also revealed she and Dannii have very different taste in men, which she believes is one of the reasons why she has always got along so well with her sister.

She added in an interview with BBC Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox: "Kris is a handsome guy. Do we have similar tastes in men? Not at all, that's been a blessing over the years."

Kylie - who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 - recently revealed Ethan has made her feel broody.

She said: "I have cuddled him and gazed at him adoringly, he's a little marvel. I am just a little bit clucky."
