Former Spice Girls star Melanie Brown has given birth to a baby girl.
The singer-turned-TV personality delivered her third child in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday evening (01Sep11), with her husband Stephen Belafonte and 12-year-old daughter Phoenix at her side.
Melanie Brown, who is also mum to four-year-old daughter Angel, took to her Twitter.com page to announce her happy news, revealing she coped with labour much better than nervous Belafonte.
She 'Tweeted', "Finally our baby arrives, Stephen nearly passed out, Phoenix screamed, I laughed so hard the baby popped out!!! She is just sooo amazing!!"
A spokesperson for Brown added on Thursday, "This evening Melanie Brown and husband Stephen Belafonte welcomed their new baby girl in Los Angeles. This is the first child for Mel and Stephen and both mum and baby are happy, healthy and doing well."
Melanie Brown is the third ex-Spice Girl to become a mum this year (11) - Emma Bunton gave birth to a son, Tate, while Victoria Beckham is now mum to a daughter, Harper Seven.
