Mel C reveals daughter Scarlet Starr as Spice Girls send congratulations

Mel C has released a super-cute picture of her newborn daughter, Scarlet Starr.

The former Sporty Spice was the last of the girl group to become a mum – giving birth to an 8lb, 3oz Scarlet at London’s Portland Hospital on 22 February – and she’s created a little cutie!

Mel’s fellow Spice Girls share that sentiment, and have all passed on their well-wishing congratulations.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, Victoria said: 'They will be wonderful parents and I am hoping to meet baby Scarlet when I am in London in the next few weeks.’

Geri Halliwell, meanwhile, jokingly gave her daughter Bluebell some credit for Mel C’s pregnancy, laughing: 'I do always say Bluebell is like some sort of fertility doll.

‘Five friends got pregnant after playing with her, and then Melanie gets pregnant after the tour!'

She added: ‘I’m so happy for Melanie. She has all the great qualities to make an excellent mother. I love the name Scarlet and wish them both so much happiness.'

Mother-of-one Emma Bunton has already seen the new addition: 'I went to see Melanie and Scarlet last week,' she says.

'Scarlet is one of the cutest little girls I’ve ever seen and Melanie is an absolutely natural mother. It was a real joy to spend time with them.'

And last but not least, Mel B has been in touch with Mel C from the birth get-go.

The pair spoke 'before the birth and on the day of the birth' and shared another Spice connection, as Mel C had Scarlet in the same room where Mel had daughter Phoenix ten years ago.
