Singer Mel C gave birth in the same room as her former Spice Girls bandmate Mel B
Mel C's baby was born in the same room as Mel B's daughter.
Mel B was amazed when her former Spice Girls bandmate texted her to say she had given birth to daughter Scarlet Starr in exactly the same place she had welcomed her first child into the world nine years previously.
Mel B said in Britain's Closer magazine: "The other day I texted her asking how she was and she replied saying she was in the middle of texting me to tell me she'd had the baby! She actually had the baby in the same hospital room that I had Phoenix."
Mel C, 35, was the last member of the Spice Girls to have a child.
As well as Phoenix Chi, Mel B has 22-month-old daughter Angel Iris. Emma Bunton is mother to 18-month-old son Beau, Geri Halliwell has two-year-old daughter Bluebell.
Victoria Beckham has three sons - Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, six, and four-year-old Cruz.
Mel B added the former bandmates are hoping to get together with their ever-growing broods soon.
She said: "Now there's a new baby in Spiceworld we'll have to get all the kids together - but it's a logistical nightmare! It'll be amazing when we do get round to it though."
