Melanie C, aka Sporty Spice, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend of six years.
She is the last Spice Girl to have a baby – Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton all have babies or are pregnant.
Here’s what she had to say on her official website:
As I’m sure you’ll understand we needed time to wait for results and tell our families.
‘I will be taking it easy but am also excited to start writing for the fifth album.
‘I will need to take some time off to be a mum but, before you know it, we’ll be back.’
