Melanie Chisholm is ready to have children

12/15/2007 at 10:10 AM ET

Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm aka Mel C, 33, is the only member of the band who doesn’t have children. But she is now ready to start a family with boyfriend Tom Starr.

I want to be a mum in the next few years. But it hasn’t been the right time yet.

Until that she is enjoying the company of her bandmates’ children.

I am enjoying the other girls’ children. They are really lovely kids, from the little babies, to Phoenix and Brooklyn. And I can give them back at the end of the day. They are lovely and I’ll have my own one day.

The other spice girls have altogether seven children: Victoria Beckham, 33, is mother to Brooklyn, 8 ½, Romeo, 5, and Cruz, 2 ½, Melanie Brown, 32, has Phoenix Chi, 8 ½, and Angel Iris, 8 months, Emma Bunton, 31, has Beau Lee, 4 months, and Geri Halliwell, 35, is mother to Bluebell Madonna, 19 months.

This is going to make me sound horrible, but I was under the impression that she was a lesbian. I may have been the whole “sporty spice” thing. heh.

Anyway. It would be great if she had kids…that would be one amazingly large extended family. It already is!

I agree! Maybe she’s bi.

She has a huge lesbian following but that doesn’t mean she is. It’s Mel B who’s bisexual.

The rumours started because she had a bit of a “Tomboy” image. She’s actually been with her boyfriend for six years its just he’s shy and she’s not the type to be posing in the celebrity magazines with him every week.

i love it when you read all their children’s names. they are all such interesting names, very different but not stupid.
