Dannii Minogue has been through the ringer in the two years since welcoming son Ethan. Nearly recovered from a c-section, the singer was then dealt a thyroid condition and appendicitis. Thankfully, these days she’s on the mend!
Recalling the months after welcoming her first child, the 40-year-old recently told Glamour UK, “It was a scary time because I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I remember looking at Ethan in the cot and thinking, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to pick him up’ – I had that little energy.”
“To have the thyroid condition and then the appendicitis, it was a lot for my body to take because only 10 months earlier I’d had a C-section to have Ethan.”
“Now, for the first time in ages, I really feel like I’m back in my body,” The X Factor judge continued. “I have to take tablets every day for my thyroid and I have regular blood tests to monitor it, but I finally feel good again.”
Speaking of 2-year-old son Ethan, she added, “He is sooo big. He’s as big as a three year old! It’s funny, because he’s still just a little baby and he needs mummy to pick him up but it’s getting harder. He’s heavy but he’s just a complete and utter bundle of joy. Ethan has been my rock.”
