Mel B has given birth to baby girl after being admitted to hospital last night.
The former Spice Girl and her husband Stephen Belafonte welcomed their first child together at around 5am at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
Mel's publicist confirmed: '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.'
Amazingly, Mel, 36, managed to log on to her Twitter profile within hours of the birth to update followers. 'Finally our baby arrives, Stephen nearly passed out, Phoenix screamed, I laughed so hard the baby popped out!!! She is just sooo amazing!!'
As yet there is no news on a name or weight for the new addition to the Brown-Belafonte clan, but of course there are two older sisters – Phoenix Chi, 12, and Angel, four – waiting to meet her.
Ronan Keating was among the first to send the proud new mother a congratulatory message.
He tweeted at her to say: '@OfficialMelB Congrats So happy for ya All , See ya soon In Oz for #xfactorau'
Her former bandmate Melanie C has also tweeted to pass on her good wishes.
She wrote: 'So so happy for my dear friend @OfficialMelB and @stephenthinks1 another girl #girlpower woo hoo! Congratulations x x x'
Earlier this week Mel revealed she had tried everything from spicy foods to sex in a desperate attempt to induce labour.
'Ideally I want it to come naturally,' continued Mel B.
'But I've tried everything, I've tried the hot food, the running, the sex, the violence, I've tried it all. It just seems to be stuck and hibernating in there getting bigger and bigger, so it's coming out this week for sure.'
But it wasn't until last night that Mel B finally went into labour with her third child and was admitted to hospital.
The singer was seen being escorted by her husband Stephen Belafonte and a bodyguard as she made her way to hospital..
And as our photos show Mel appeared to be in pain from contractions as she was helped to the hospital.
She was dressed causally in a pair of light blue linen trousers and a blue hooded jumper with a skull and crossbones design.
Some 21 hours ago Mel had complained on Twitter that she couldn't sleep and that her husband was kindly rustling her up a snack.
Despite the early hour Stephen made her a healthy meal and she posted: '@Stephenthinks1 is cooking me chicken and greens,i have the best hubby EVER!!'
And it seems that the food finally did just the trick, just a few hours later Mel was in the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills with her third daughter on the way.
