Animal instincts!

Mom-to-be Melanie Brown takes a walk on the wild side Friday, stepping out in a tiger-print maxi dress during a beverage run in L.A.

The Spice Girl, 36, says she usually gives birth six to seven weeks early and therefore expects her baby “around July, August” although she is not officially due until later.

Brown and husband Stephen Belafonte have three children between them: daughters Phoenix, 12, Giselle, 7, and Angel, 4.

I thought she would be much farther along. She doesn’t have much of a bump.

Good to see a pic of Mel B with her baby belly. Here’s a question though, of her and her husband Stephan’s kids, which ones are hers and his? (I’m just curious about how many times she’s given birth..lol! :P)

I know Mel had a daughter with her first husband…and a baby who’s bio dad was Eddie Murphy…but is that the 4 yr old or the 7 yr old in this their list of 3 daughers so far? Is this pregnancy Mel’s first child with Stephen?

Yes, it will be her first baby with Stephen.

Giselle is his daughter from prevous relationship and the 4 year old is her daughter to Eddie Murphy.

Maybe a boy to throw into the mix this time?!, although if she has history of early bubs (I had to have my son almost 7 weeks early due to pre-eclampsia, nearly 7 yrs ago now, weighed only 3pds 9oz, and it was a pretty scary time as a first time mum!), sure they’re mainly hoping for a healthy baby….

I’m surprised she sounds so nonchalant about having her babies six to seven weeks early.

Annie W.: Some people just end up going into labor early. I have a cousin who gave birth around 6 weeks early to both of her kids and her doctors don’t know why she went in to labor early. Both were healthy and didn’t need to spend time in the NICU.

for every baby that early that doesnt spend time in nicu there is 1000 of babies that do and that may have serious issues. Having a baby 2 months early can be dangerous and is nothing a mother should wish for
