Australian singer Kylie Minogue's sister Dannii has given birth to her first child, her spokesman said on Wednesday.

Dannii Minogue, 38, a judge on the hit British TV talent show "X-Factor" alongside media mogul Simon Cowell, had a son with her partner Kris Smith on Monday. They named him Ethan Edward Smith.

Her spokesman Simon Jones said: "Mother and baby are doing well and Dad is very proud. They request their privacy at this special time to adjust as new parents."

According to reports, the baby was born in Melbourne.

Kylie, who is four years older than her sister, has been busy promoting her new album "Aphrodite" but is reported to be planning to visit her new nephew in the near future.

Dannii Minogue's pregnancy has forced her to miss the recent "X-Factor" auditions, with stand-ins including Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and Nicole Scherzinger from pop group Pussycat Dolls.
