She came into notoriety as one fifth of the British girl group Spice Girls, and yesterday (February 22) Melanie Chisholm welcomed a baby girl into the world.

The former Sporty Spice and her boyfriend of six years Thomas Starr named their 8-pound 3-ounce daughter Scarlett Starr.

And according to Mel C’s website, both mother and baby “are doing fine.” Back in August Chisholm announced her pregnancy, telling press “We are very happy.”

Melanie is the final Spice Girl to attain Spice Mom status, as Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Melanie Brown, and Emma Bunton all have little ones as well.
