Melanie Brown aka “Mel B” is expecting her first child with husband Stephen Belafonte.
Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, 35, who already has two children Phoenix Chi, 12, and Angel Iris, 3, from previous relationships, is expecting her first baby with hubby Stephen Belafonte this summer.
Melanie and Stephen have been married for three-and-a-half years and are thrilled with the baby news. The couple said, “We’re really excited. We wouldn’t have planned and waited for four years to have a baby if we weren’t really excited about it and ready for it. Even though you can never really be truly ready.”
The former Spice Girl broke the news to Stephen, who has a six-year-old daughter, Giselle, from a previous relationship, and they toasted with a glass of champagne.
Stephen says, “I promptly got a bottle of Cristal champagne and said, ‘Baby, enjoy this glass because you can’t drink anymore!’ I must tell you, she really enjoyed that glass of Cristal.”
Melanie isn’t certain if she wants to know the gender of their unborn baby before the birth.
Brown told HELLO! magazine, “I haven’t fully decided if I want to know or not. I’m over the first trimester, so I’m past the shady three months and on to safe territory. The first three months, I was pretty sick and tired, to be honest, which I’ve never been before.”
Brown joins her fellow Spice Girls bandmate Victoria Beckham, who is also pregnant and expecting a baby girl.
