Kylie Minogue may soon be letting go of one of the most recognised surnames in Australia!
The Aussie singer has confirmed that she will take on fiance Joshua Sasse’s surname once they marry. In fact, Minogue seems to think it’s a much more fitting name for her and much easier to say!
“Sasse is a great name. Kylie Sasse is a great name. It’s a great stage name,” she said. “Kylie Minogue has never exactly tripped off the tongue. I’ll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere. Taking a different name makes a statement.”
Minogue, 48 first met her fiancé Sasse in 2015 when she made a guest appearance on the US series Galavant which he starred in. Although she is almost 20 years her junior, Minogue says: “When I look into Josh’s eyes, he is all I see and that makes me very happy.”
It’s not all completely over for the Minogue name though, with the Aussie saying it will still be around in some shape, way or form. “I’ll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere,” she says.
This will be the first wedding for them both with Sasse already having a three-year-old son from his previous relationship with Italian actress, Francesca Cini.
