No further details about the birth are yet to be released, but Mel is also believed to be doing well.
Mel and Thomas, who have been dating for six years, are set to marry this July.
The 35-year-old singer previously revealed she was "delighted" about the couple's impending arrival, insisting she always knew she would have children.
Mel - full name Melanie Chisholm - said at the time: "I love kids and one of the best bits about touring with the Spice Girls this time round was getting to know everyone's babies. I'm sure babies will be part of my future."
She is the last member of the Spice Girls to have a child.
