With his mum being a judge on one of the most famous talent shows in the world, it’s only fair that 5-month-old Ethan gets in on the action and bags a front row seat – which is exactly what he did on Saturday night as he made his TV debut on the Xtra Factor.
Donning a fetching pair of bright pink headphones sitting on mum Dannii Minogue‘s lap, the adorable tot looked slightly bemused by his surroundings. Accompanying his 39-year-old mum at the X Factor auditions, he was greeted by an air of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ when his visit was screened on the Xtra Factor – including from fellow judges Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell.
Cheryl gushed, “Oh my god, oh my god, that is so cute!” after seeing baby Ethan waving at the audience and Simon Cowell quipped, “And they are on sale in all good retailers? The headphones that is.”
This is the first time we’ve spotted Ethan since he was born in July and was seen with his dad Kris Smith, 33.
How much does he look like his mum?
Another Minogue gushing about babies is Dannii’s big sister Kylie. Admitting that she’s looked into egg donation as a way of starting a family, Kylie Minogue, 42, also revealed that her chances of conceiving are “very hard”.
“I’ve looked into various options. I don’t know if I’m going to go down those roads yet, but I do need to look at what might be potential paths that lead to a family,” Kylie told Glamour magazine.
