Former Spice Girl Mel B has announced that she has given birth to a baby girl.
She was taken to hospital on 1 September, welcoming her as yet unnamed child at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
It is the Australian X Factor judge's third child, but her first with husband Stephen Bellafonte.
Melanie's spokesperson confirmed the news in a statement:
"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."
The 36-year-old singer also took to her Twitter page to give a more personal account of the arrival, posting:
"Finally our baby arrives, Stephen nearly passed out, Phoenix screamed, I laughed so hard the baby popped out!!! She is just sooo amazing!!"
Mel, who was three weeks overdue, previously told Hello magazine that she "can't wait" to meet her next new arrival:
"The whole family is beside themselves. Both Phoenix and Angel arrived six weeks early. I've never been this pregnant before."
Mel already has two children from previous relationships, 12-year-old Phoenix Chi and Angel, four.
