Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm Expecting Her First Child

Melanie Chisholm (aka Sporty Spice), 34, and her boyfriend of six years, property developer Thomas Starr, confirmed their baby joy on her Web site Friday morning.

“Some happy news,” she wrote. “I can now announce that Tom and I are expecting a baby and we are very happy.”

Melanie follows in the footsteps of her former Spice Girls bandmates – Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton – who have all become moms.

A source said: ‘The girls are so pleased for her and have said they’re only a phone call away to pass on any parenting tips.

Baby buzz building began last week, when Chisholm wore a baggy dress during a show in Liverpool last week.

“As I’m sure you’ll understand, we needed time to wait for results and tell our families,” she explained on the site.

Even as she prepares for motherhood, the singer says she’s “also excited” to begin writing songs for a new solo album.

“I will need to take some time off to be a mum,” she wrote. “But, before you know it, we’ll be back.”

Best Wishes!

    Congrats to Melanie! I used to follow the Spice Girls and I always felt that she was the most sensitive of the bunch and the only one in it for the music – not just to be famous for being famous. And I was right because she honestly continues to put out music in earnest, even if it isn’t going to result in a number one.

    Ha! I think it’s time to call in the fashion police. I wouldn’t even wear that thing for my burial.

    But seriously- the hair looks like a wig and the pantsuit is awful!
