Mel B has announced her third pregnancy in the hope it will make people remember she exists.
Keen to not be overshadowed by her former bandmates Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton – both currently expecting –the ex-Spice Girl posed with hubby Stephen Belafonte and her swelling bump in the new issue of Hello! magazine.
She gushed: “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.”
Mel – real name Melanie Brown – explained they had decided to try for a baby shortly before Christmas.
She also gave “the power of wanting a baby” as the highly-scientific explanation as to why she fell pregnant so quickly.
The couple already raise three children together: Mel’s daughters Phoenix and Angel from previous relationships, and Stephen’s daughter Giselle.
Scary Spice also broke the terrible news earlier this month that she is keen for her old pop band to release new material.
She told Contactmusic: “I’d love to get back with the Spice Girls. I’ve always championed more Spice Girls concerts, DVDs and music.”
But she then added: “We haven’t had that conversation as a group yet and I can’t speak on everyone’s behalf.”
