Dannii Minogue is recording a new album with songs written by 'X Factor' loser Ruth Lorenzo.
The judge on the hit ITV1 show - who mentored fiery Ruth two years ago when she finished fifth behind Alexandra Burke - has already recorded one of the tunes.
New mum Dannii and Ruth, 27, have met up in the studio and both are pleased with the results so far.
Wild-haired Ruth revealed how Dannii fell in love with the single 'Because You're Beautiful' straight away when she played it to her over dinner.
The meeting went so well the popstar snapped it up and took it to the studio - which was captured on film for Dannii's new ITV2 show 'Style Queen'.
Spanish Ruth said: "She was rocking out with her big belly doing air guitar. She loved it. I said if she wanted to sing it she could have it. We got in the studio and it was so much fun."
Dannii - who hadn't been in a studio since recording her 2003 album 'Neon Nights' - said it was nerve-wracking going back to work after having her son Ethan.
She said: "It's kind of scary. It's like getting back on the horse."
Dannii and her model boyfriend Kris Smith welcomed baby Ethan Edward Smith into the world earlier this month in Melbourne, Australia.
Following thousands of messages from well-wishers across the world on the birth of Ethan on July 5, Kris, 31, thanked everyone on Twitter.
He tweeted: "On behalf of the 3 of us I would like to thank you all for your kind words and best wishes. It means a lot to us. X (sic)."
