Melanie B was photographed wincing in pain on her way to the hospital, and dear god, I am never having children.
The former Spice Girl arrived at a Los Angeles hospital early Thursday morning, before the sun was even up, being carried by her bodyguard and husband, Stephen Belafonte. And I don't know anything about this man, but I can tell you, he's a horrible, horrible person. Just look at Mel's face. Writhing in unbearable pain. This man is responsible for that.
She Tweeted on Wednesday: "The baby will come when it's good and ready, so for now working as usual to keep my mind off being over due!!"
Then, in a radio interview, Mel B said that it was due time for her to go into labor. "I’ve just had my doctor on the phone…It's coming out this week, one way or another it's coming out this week."
This will be the singer's third child.
In 1999, Melanie Brown became the first Spice Girl to have a baby, giving birth to daughter Phoenix Chi. Mel was married to dancer Jimmy Gulzar at the time.
In 2000, the couple split and battled publicly for custody of their daughter. Three years later, Mel moved to Los Angeles with her Phoenix. She began dating comedian Eddie Murphy, and shortly after, Brown announced she was pregnant with Murphy's child.
"We're in love and get on really well. All the children have met and get on too – it's like a great big happy family. I can't wait to spend Christmas with him and I can't wait to have this baby."
Mel named her daughter Angel Iris Murphy Brown. I'm guessing she was naming it after Eddie and not the TV show. But you never know, it was a pretty good show.
But after the pair split, Murphy questioned whether he was the child's father. Not cool. That's when it got ugly. Brown said, "the less said about the Beverly Hills Cock the better."
Brown and Belafonte have been married since 2007, having celebrated their fourth anniversary this summer.
Just hours before going into labor, Mel kept tweeting about how she couldn't sleep because of the baby.
"can't sleep arrrhhhh!!!! gonna go to my kitchen and eat, that always helps!!!"
“@Stephenthinks1 is cooking me chicken and greens, i have the best hubby EVER!! (sic)”
Congrats to the couple. Can't wait to see Mel with her beautiful, non going-into-labor face.
