Scary Spice Melanie Brown is pregnant for third time
Because The Juice* feels some sort of perverse duty to the decade of the 1990s, we have to announce that former Spice Girl Melanie Brown is pregnant again. That makes three of the former girl group preggers all at once -- the others being Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton. Can the Earth handle such a confluence?!?
"We're really thrilled," the 35-year-old tells Hello magazine of she and her husband of almost four years, Stephen Belafonte. "We wouldn't have planned and waited for four years to have a baby if we weren't excited and ready for it."
Indeed, the erstwhile Scary Spice probably had to think of it for awhile: Her first daughter, Phoenix Chi, came from her first marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar in 1999, while we all remember she was knocked up and abandoned by Eddie Murphy in 2006, giving birth to Angel Iris the following year. She's probably just been planning how to keep Stephen in line before announcing it.
