Kylie Minogue stays in touch with her family by Skype
The `All the Lovers` hitmaker - who is dating Spanish model Andres Velencoso - currently resides in London, England, and as the majority of her relatives still live in Melbourne, Australia, she uses the internet video conferencing software to speak to them.
Kylie - whose sister Dannii has moved back to Melbourne with her boyfriend Kris Smith to have their first baby - said: "Obviously, I don`t get to see the family too much because they-re in Australia but we Skype.
"We`re a modern family - even my four-year-old nephew. I`m `Auntie Kick` to my nephews."
The 42-year-old pop star also revealed one of her nephews - the son of her brother Brendan - is obsessed with her live show and she predicts he will follow in the footsteps of her and her singer sister when he gets older.
She added to UK show `GMTV`: "I`m `Auntie Kick`. Little Charlie, when he wasn`t even a year, came to one of my concerts and he loved it. He loves putting the DVD on. He`s a performer, he`s so musical, we`re like, `I know where you`re headed.- "
Kylie also spoke of her desire to get on stage when she was just four years old, but was afraid she wouldn`t be able to follow her dream as she got older.
She explained: "I knew where I wanted to go in the general sense, I wanted to perform, I loved music from when I was at a music class when I was four, I started acting at 11.
"But then when I was in high school it got a bit tricky because none of those were presented as careers so I thought I`d have to go and do a business class or something."
