Heavily pregnant Spice Girl Melanie Brown has checked into a Los Angeles hospital to give birth to her third child.
The singer-turned-TV personality recently revealed she was facing an induced labour if she hadn’t given birth naturally by Sunday.

In a radio interview on Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, she said, “It’s coming out this week, one way or another it’s coming out this week…

“Ideally I want it to come naturally, but I’ve tried everything. And it just seems to be stuck and hibernating in there getting bigger and bigger, so it’s coming out this week for sure.”

And it appears Brown will get her way after all – she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the early hours of Thursday.

Brown was photographed looking in pain as she leaned on her husband Stephen Belafonte and a bodyguard, who helped to escort the star from her car to the facility.

The dash to the hospital came shortly after Brown complained about her inability to sleep.

In a series of posts on her blog, she wrote, “can’t sleep arrrhhhh!!!! gonna go to my kitchen and eat,that always helps!!! in LA right now it’s 413am.”

The child will be Brown’s first with Belafonte. The singer, also known as Mel B, is already mum to two daughters from previous relationships.
