Kylie Minogue‘s engagement to British GQ executive Paul Solomons was confirmed by his ‘thrilled’ step-mother last week.
And reports claim the pop princess, 52, has been hiding yet another secret – that she’s preparing to marry her fiancé, 46, in her home country of Australia.
Kylie and her Welsh beau recently arrived in Victoria after flying over from the UK, and are said to be planning a low-key wedding in Melbourne.

‘Kylie has said for years that when she does marry, it will be in her beloved hometown of Melbourne,’ an insider told New Idea on Monday.
‘Her parents are here and are getting on a bit, so it’s hard to get them to Britain in this current climate’, they added.
Kylie is said to have envisioned herself walking down the aisle at a low-key ceremony with close friends and family in attendance.

However, according to Woman’s Day magazine, her plans have quickly ‘snowballed’ into something more extravagant.
‘I heard Kylie wanted a really low-key wedding once she realised Paul was the one. But now she’s back in Melbourne, plans are snowballing a bit. She’s totally caught up in the moment and thrilled to be home’, they claimed.
Elsewhere, other sources are speculating Kylie has recruited her younger sister, Dannii, 49, to be maid of honour.

‘There’s no way Kylie would get married without Dannii by her side,’ an insider told Woman’s Day on Monday.
‘Those two have been thick as thieves since they were kids and she’s a shoo-in for maid of honour.’
Last week, the sisters were spotted on a luxury shopping spree at the Crown Melbourne entertainment complex, perhaps looking for wedding outfits.

Kylie has been dating Paul, the creative director of British GQ, since 2018. In recent months, she has remained coy about speculation they are set to wed.
According to New Idea, the couple have been secretly engaged ‘for a good few months’, after Paul proposed with a ‘large, diamond ring in yellow gold’.
Kylie and Paul’s happy news was accidentally revealed by former pop star turned actress Billie Piper, 38, in an interview with British ELLE magazine, released earlier this month.

Gloria, who has been married to Paul’s father Mark for 41 years, said she had not been aware of Billie’s engagement slip – and was eager for details of her comments.
Gloria also said she had met Kylie and liked her. ‘She’s very nice I’m thrilled they’re engaged.
‘It’s very exciting. But, I’m sorry, I cannot tell you any more because I’ve been told not to. I respect my son and I respect Kylie too much to say any more.’
Despite Gloria’s confirmation, a representative for Kylie denied the engagement to MailOnline.
