33-year-old Kris also used Twitter to express his sadness over the decision, writing: “Dannii and I have a deep mutual love and respect for each other and although things have not worked out we have a gorgeous son together that we both love and implore everyone to respect our privacy at this challenging time.”

The model’s Twitter profile reads: “Its nice to be important, but its more important to be nice... not really sure what my job is anymore.. but i do know i love my boy more than life...[sic]”

A source told the Daily Mail that Dannii had “fought and fought” to save the relationship, but in the end it seems it just wasn’t to be.
