I’m happy that she’s starting a family – she’s by far the best of the ex-spices.
She’s radiant…just as she should be 🙂

She looks really amazing – definitely better than ever, as others have said! Pregnancy really suits her, and she looks very happy. 🙂

i don’t mean anything… but i FOR SURE thought she was out… and here she is w/ a boo and a baby… lol…

i guess that means nothing because anne heche was TOTALLY w/ ellen and now has a new baby on the way too… at any rate.

the POINT of this was to say how PRETTY she looks… she always looked so “hard” as a spice girl, which made sense as she was “sporty” spice… but now… she looks REALLY pretty… soft… ladylike… i’m not saying the right word… she looks really pretty… let’s leave it at that… lol

is that Elisabeth Hurley in the Red behind Mel? how can you ‘see it in her face’ that she’s having a girl?

Liz Hurley has brown hair, so I don’t think that’s her, J. As for the face, I’m not sure what Bubbles meant, but there are some old wives’ tales about pregnancy and the face. I think if your face gets fuller during pregnancy it means you’re having a girl and if you “lose your prettiness” in your face you’re having a girl. Not true of course, but fun things to look for to guess about the gender.

Mel and I are due right around the same time so I think it would be so cool if we have our babies the same day. She was always my favorite Spice Girl! 🙂

Fay – she’s never come out of the closet. She’s always said that she’s straight. She’s been with Tom for nearly 7 years. 🙂

I agree with you all, very pretty. I like her dress a lot as well.
