Mel B has confirmed she is expecting her first child this summer with hubby Stephen Belafonte. Mel and Stephen say they are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming a new addition.
‘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,’ she told HELLO! magazine
The couple, who began trying for a baby around Christmas and became pregnant soon right after, say they were surprised it happened so fast.
‘The power of wanting a baby, I think, can sometimes just work to your advantage. I didn’t think I would get pregnant that quickly.’
Of finding out the baby’s sex, she reveals:
‘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.
Mel B’s former band mates Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton are also expecting.
The singer has two daughters – Phoenix Chi, 12, from her first marriage to backup dancer Jimmy Gulzar, and Angel, three, from her short-lived relationship with Eddie Murphy.
Stephen has a six-year-old daughter Giselle from a previous relationship.
