Mel B not keen on 'skinny' Alba

Former Spice Girl Mel B thinks Jessica Alba's post-baby body is "too skinny"

Mel B thinks Jessica Alba is "too skinny".

The former Spice Girl - who gave birth to daughter Angel Iris in April 2007 - doesn't feel pressurised to look as thin as other celebrities, and would never resort to dangerous diets to lose weight.

Looking at a picture of Jessica looking svelte just three months after having daughter Honor, Mel said: "God, I didn't do any exercise during my last pregnancy. Jessica looks a bit too skinny if you ask me. I didn't rush back to the gym afterwards because I liked that I was all mushy and cuddly. I've never felt under pressure about the way I look."

The 33-year-old singer - who also has nine-year-old daughter Phoenix-Chi and helps to raise her husband Stephen Belafonte's daughter Giselle - insists she has a sensible attitude towards weight loss, choosing to exercise more if she wants to slim down.

She added to Britain's Glamour magazine: "If I don't like something I'll change it. If my legs don't look great, I'll go running more. If my six-pack vanishes, I'll do more sit-ups. I've got three kids and beautiful houses all over Los Angeles, and there's more to life than obsessing about yourself."

20 years on, the pop Wannabes are still performing together. Well, mostly.
