Pics: Splash

After seeing these pics of Mel B in labour yesterday, we knew it wouldn't be long before she gave birth. And it's now been confirmed that the Spice Girl gave birth to a little baby girl - her first with husband Stephen Belafonte - last night.

The couple released a statement saying: "This evening Melanie Brown and husband Stephen Belafonte welcomed their new baby girl in Los Angeles.

"This is the first child for Mel and Stephen and both mum and baby are happy, healthy and doing well."

No other details about the new arrival have been released - so we guess we'll have to wait for the name!

The poor lass looked like she was in a lot of pain last night. Mel had previously taken to Twitter to complain that she was uncomfortable and desperate for the baby to make an appearance.

She said: "Ideally I want it to come naturally, but I've tried everything. I've tried the hot food, the running, the sex and violence. I've tried it all."

The violence? Eh?

Moving on...we're waiting on tenterhooks to hear what Mel decides to call the tot. She already has two daughters, called Phoenix Chi and Angel - she'll have to come up with something pretty impressive to beat those!
