Kylie Minogue covers the current issue of Hello! Magazine. Inside is a spread featuring faraway photos of her on the beach on the Greek island of Sifnos with her fiance of four months, 28 year-old actor Joshua Sasse. The photos look like they’re on a honeymoon, but Hello! reports that, contrary to rumors that they’re married already, these two are going to get married in Italy sometime next month. Joshua has a two year-old son who lives in Italy, from his relationship with an Italian woman. The timeline of their relationship may be suspect and it’s thought that Joshua was attached when he first met Kylie, but he’s enough of an unknown commodity that outlets don’t seem to have picked up on it. Hello! has details of their summer days, which sound and look very relaxing, along with some nice quotes from Kylie sort-of addressing their nearly 20 year age difference. (I think she gave those to a different outlet but they’re new to me.)
Hello! can reveal that [Joshua and Kylie] are planning to tie the knot in Italy next month.
A source on the island told Hello!: “Joshua has been telling his friends in Greece about their plans to marry in Italy.”
Joshua knows Italy well: his two year-old son, Sebastian, from his relationship with Italian sociality Francesa Cini, lives there. The couple, who never married, separated when Sebastian was a young boy but Joshua maintains a good relationship with him.
[Joshua and Kylie] have been staying in a luxury house in Poulati, near Artemonas – an area known for its architecture and natural beauty.
During the day the happy couple have ventured down to a nearby beach, often then lunching at a gourmet fish restaurant or having a drink at all-day beach bar Palmira on Paltys Gialos beach.
Evenings have been spent wandering the streets of Artemonas, eating in local tavernas or sampling delicious Italian fare…
Both have largely relocated to Greece over the summer, regularly flying out to attend events in London…
“Joshua is still in Sifnos, while Kylie is in London… she will no doubt be back soon… He is spending all day at the beach, swimming, reading, learning to speak Greek, enjoying good food and having fun with some local friends..”
Joshua is 20 years her junior, but Kylie has said: “I think the general consensus is we kind of look right together. So even though on paper it might not look right, it just is right.
“He is an absolutely brilliant, brilliant guy. And even if I try and act cool and natural, it’s written all over my face that I am very happy.”

How awesome does that vacation sound? They’re lounging on the beach, staying in a luxury villa, reading, eating and drinking, with occasional breaks for work. Plus they clearly adore each other, judging by the photos. Kylie’s right they do look good together. (She didn’t say that exactly, but that’s how I took it.) Now I want Hello! to get the exclusive wedding photos. You know I will be buying that issue. Hello! also points out that Italy is a popular wedding destination for celebrities, with Kim K and Kanye, George Clooney and Amal and Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster marrying there. I just want to go there for the food, I don’t need romance just some delicious pasta and wine.
