Denise Van Outen has revealed she’s been swapping baby tips with Dannii Minogue.

The TV presenter, whose first child – a girl – with husband Lee Mead is due in May, has offered some advice to the six-months-pregnant X Factor judge, who is also expecting her first child with boyfriend Kris Smith.

“I’ve been bonding with Dannii over the whole experience – I’ve given her and Kris a parenting guide called The Baby Whisperer,” she told Closer.

Denise said the couple, who married in the Seychelles last April, are ready to face parenthood together.

“We’ll go through tough times having our first baby – couples naturally do. We want to make time for each other so everything doesn’t become about the baby. We’re even going to have date nights!” she claimed.

“He’s more romantic than me so I’ll have to see what he has up his sleeve. He already books all my pregnancy massages and I came home the other day to find a voucher for a pedicure and foot massage. He’s really sweet.”

Denise admitted she would like to lose the post-pregnancy pounds for David Walliams’ wedding.

“Although I want to get back into shape gently, there are a couple of things in my diary that I would like to look nice for – I’ve got David Walliams’ wedding a couple of weeks after the birth,” she said.
