But Kris, who shares a 10-year-old son with his ex-partner Dannii Minogue, never shows pictures of his eldest child on Instagram – and that’s a conscious decision the former couple have made together as co-parents. 

It is believed that Dannii has requested that Ethan not be shown on social media so he can live a normal life, away from the spotlight. She does not share images of Ethan on her own social media pages either.

The model and Myer Ambassador explained his and Dannii’s decision to maintain their son’s privacy in 2019, when one follower commented on a photo of Kris and Sarah’s family, asking about Ethan. 

“Where is your son? We never see him,” the comment read.

Seemingly taken aback by the question, Kris responded: “And you never will on here.”

In another response, Kris added: “This is a personal page where I post what I like, not what you ‘think’ you can demand.”

Sarah jumped to his defence too, replying: “You see what we choose to share on our public pages. It’s not an open forum. Some of the most precious moments we share as a family you will never see.”

Kris’s fans also defended the star, branding the follower’s inquisitive comment as “rude”. 

One fan commented: “Mind your own business.”

“He doesn’t need to tell you anything, just appreciate what he does share,” another wrote.

“There’s NO need to be so damn bloody rude,” someone else said.

The announced their split in 2012 via Twitter, after four years together. 

“It brings me great sadness to tell you that Kris & I have separated,” Dannii tweeted at the time.

“We still care for each other & ask for privacy at this difficult time, in particular for our son Ethan who remains our number one priority.”
