Dannii Minogue opens up about health problems

The star lost too much weight due to thyroid issue

Dannii has revealed that she lost weight after the birth of son Ethan due to health problems and not dieting.

Minogue said that she couldn't understand why she was so tired all the time, and put it down to motherhood.

"When you’re just had a baby you think it must be normal tiredness. But it got to the point where I thought, "This cannot be normal" said the star.

Her health problems also took their toll on her relationship with model Kris Smith.
"Poor Kris. He was thinking after getting through the pregnancy and the baby that everything would be just fine and he couldn’t work out why I wasn’t well. It was bloody difficult."

Dannii found it difficult to cope with being a new mum, travelling back and forth between the UK where she was working as an X Factor judge, and her native Australia. Her added health issue meant that she had to make a decision and pull out of working on the talent show in England.

Dannii is feeling progressively better however.

"I’m getting there. I can’t wait to have the energy to work out again".
