Former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@melaniecmusic) on Thursday (August 21), revealing she and her construction manager boyfriend Tom Starr are expecting their first child. Melanie C writes:
Some Happy News!
Well, I can now announce that Tom and I are expecting a baby and we are very happy.
As I’m sure you’ll understand we needed time to wait for results and tell our families. Thank you for all your kindness, good wishes and support (even if it was based on speculation!).
You all know how much I value my privacy so I’m sure I can rely on you to respect that, particularly at this time.
I will be taking it easy but am also excited to start writing for the fifth album. I’ll need some time off to be a mum but, before you know it, we’ll be back.
Also check back on the site over the next week or so – Uncles Paul, Greg, Nick, Scott, Vinnie (and me) are planning a UK gig somewhere ‘up north’ for a great cause (rocking out is not easy at the moment so it’ll be a full band acoustic gig).
Love Melanie xx
