London: Singer Dannii Minogue claims having fallen so ill after giving birth to her first child that she feared she had cancer.

The 39-year-old says she suffered severe tiredness and a bout of appendicitis after son Ethan was born last year and this made her fear that she had cancer after watching her sister, singer Kylie, battle the disease in 2005.

"In my darkest moments I did really worry - because of family history - it could be something that serious. The last year was incredibly tough," contactmusic.com quoted Minogue as saying.
