LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The Spice babies have a new addition on the way!
Mel B, aka Scary Spice, and husband Stephen Belafonte are expecting a new baby this summer. She confirmed the news to Access Hollywood on Monday.
She joins fellow Spice moms, Victoria Beckham (expecting a girl) and Emma Button (expecting a boy), who are also due this summer.
The couple, both 35, first shared the pregnancy news with Britain’s Hello! magazine.
“We’re really thrilled. We wouldn’t have planned and waited for four years to have a baby if we weren’t excited and ready for it,” the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant told the mag.
“Both my pregnancies have been lucky and happy and exciting, no matter what situation I’ve been in. This is different because we have been married for four years, we have a history together, we’re best friends, we’re in it together, and he’s totally supportive,” she continued.
Adding, “I like the feeling of being pregnant. I like being able to just eat something if I’m craving it. I definitely do put on weight [during pregnancy] but I think you’re meant to when you’re pregnant. I think it’s healthy.”
The sex of the baby is not known at this time.
Mel B, whose full name is Melanie Brown, and Stephen have three children from previous relationships. Mel B is mom to Phoenix, 12, and Angel Iris, 3. Stephen is dad to daughter Giselle, 6.
