On the eve of returning home to promote her new Christmas album, Kylie, 47, can’t contain her excitement at the best news of all.
She’s now dating TV producer Joshua Sasse, 27, and says she’s never been happier.
“Even though on paper it might not look right, it kind of is right,” Kylie told The Project.
“And people are pretty much leaving us to get on with it. The general consensus is that we kind of look right together.”
The Can’t Get You Out of My Head singer’s last serious boyfriend was Spanish model Andres Velencoso, 10 years her junior.
After their relationship ended in October, 2013, Kylie admitted that her greatest fear is “loneliness” and that she suffers from anxiety late at night.
Kylie, who also makes guest appearances at the ARIAs and on The X-Factor while home, has had a string of long-term boyfriends but has never married or had children.
She once described her Mr Right as someone who was “strong, sensitive, humourous and someone she could have a good time with”.
Joshua seems to be ticking all those boxes so far.
Since their first public outing at the Rugby World Cup in London, a head-over-heals Kylie is making PDAs every chance she gets.
She even admits to buying matching Christmas jumpers for the festive season.
“They’re not cheesy. I actually did a lot of research. I know it’s all about the ugly sweater thing, but I didn’t want them to be ugly.
“They say ‘have a sassy Christmas’, because his name is Sasse.”
UK-based Kylie kick-starts the festive fun Down Under by performing with sister Dannii at The X Factor Grand Final on Seven on November 24.
In their first television performance in almost three decades, Dannii and Kylie will perform 100 Degrees, the first single off Kylie Christmas, available now.
“I’ll be bringing a little Christmas cheer to The X Factor stage. I can’t wait to come home and perform on the show with Dannii,” says Kylie.
Two days later on November 26 she guest stars on Network Ten’s live coverage of the ARIA Awards where she inducts good friend Tina Arena into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
