  • Sporty Spice Mel C expecting first baby

    Mel C, of the Spice Girls fame, is expecting her first baby.

    The 34-year-old Sporty Spice has confirmed that she has become pregnant by her boyfriend of six years, Thomas Starr, the Mirror reports.

    A friend of the singer told the paper: ‘Melanie is over the moon at the prospect of becoming a mum for the first time.

    ‘The girls are so pleased for her and have said they’re only a phone call away to pass on any parenting tips.
    ‘Melanie loved being around their kids on the band’s recent tour and is delighted she’s now one of the gang.’

    In fact, the news means she will be the last of the five Spice Girls to become a mum following Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton. And when Mel C gives birth, it will bring the total number of Spice babies to eight.

    Melanie hinted at feeling broody in an interview earlier this month, saying: ‘I love kids and one of the best bits about touring with the Spice Girls this time round was getting to know everyone’s babies. I’m sure that babies will be a part of my future.’

    Looks like she was right!
