Melanie Brown Adds a Baby Girl to the Spice Girls Playgroup

Melanie Brown, the artist formerly known as Scary Spice, gave birth to a baby girl Thursday night in Los Angeles.

The ex-Spice Girls singer, along with husband Stephen Belafonte, announced the news early Friday. "Finally our baby arrives," she said on Twitter. "Stephen nearly passed out, Phoenix screamed, I laughed so hard the baby popped out!!! She is just sooo amazing!!"

The singer's rep confirmed the news with PEOPLE, adding that "both mum and baby are happy, healthy and doing well." The baby girl's name has not been revealed.

This is the first child for the couple, who married in 2007. Brown is mom to Phoenix, 12, from a previous marriage, and 4-year-old Angel, whose father is actor Eddie Murphy.

Two of Brown's fellow Spice Girls gave birth recently, Victoria Beckham's daughter Harper, 7 weeks, and Emma Bunton's son Tate, 4 months.

In recent years, Brown participated in a 2007-08 reunion with the Spice Girls and placed second during the fifth season (2007) of "Dancing With the Stars." His partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, offered his congrats already via Twitter: "Wishing your newborn all the health and happiness!"
