“Scary” Spice Girl Mel B — Melanie Janine Brown — gave birth to a 5.5-pound daughter Friday. She was two weeks early. According to the London Sun, Scary went into labor while eating a spicy Indian curry meal near her London home. The child, named Phoenix Chi (it means fire aura), is “the child of the future,” her dad, Melanie’s husband Jimmy Gulzar, proclaimed. “It was true girl power,” exclaimed Posh, Sporty and Baby Spice. “We are all Spice aunties now.” Next up in the maternity ward: Victoria “Posh Spice” Adams, who is due to give birth in a week.
