Former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue and boyfriend Kris Smith insisted today they remain "committed to their relationship" after reports that they had split.

The 39-year-old and her partner of three years have a baby son, Ethan, who is 11 months old.

They released a statement which said: "We're happy to be back at home in Melbourne together as a family. We are committed to our relationship and Ethan as always."

The Daily Mirror reported today that the couple had been living apart for seven weeks and had written a number of Twitter entries about love.

According to the newspaper, Minogue wrote: "Never chase love. If it isn't given freely by another person, it's not worth having."

Smith Tweeted: "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone." The entries were later deleted.

Minogue was a popular judge on reality series The X Factor but quit earlier this month, saying that filming clashed with her commitments on another series, Australia's Got Talent.
