Although Spice Girls singer Melanie Chisholm – who is of course better known as Mel C – is currently single, she’s revealed that she’d love to have another baby…
However, her four-year daughter Scarlet apparently wants three sisters, and as Mel has revealed that at 40, she’s aware of her body clock ticking, she’d best be getting on with it!
Mel, who recently sang a duet with former X Factor winner Matt Cardle on his new single Loving You – which was accompanied by a fairly steamy video – told the Daily Star Sunday, “I am getting a little older now and I would love to have a sibling for Scarlet…”
She added, “I am having loads of fun being single. It’s been a good time for me to be connected to my friends, and I’ve made lots of new ones recently since doing more sport.
“But I would love to have more children.
“Obviously there is no man on the scene at the moment so it could be a bit tricky!”
She continued, “Scarlet’s said she’d like to have three sisters, but mummy isn’t allowed to have a boyfriend – so I think I need to teach her something there!”
Mel went on to say that she loves being a mum, adding, “It’s changed me in so many ways…
“Scarlet has made me more confident, happier and, I think, content.
“Your priorities change. I’m much more relaxed about things [but] do I suffer from guilty working mum syndrome? Absolutely”
However, she added, “As long as Scarlet’s OK, then everything is OK.
“She’s made me want to say yes to more things and not shy away. I’ve felt more courageous.”
But Mel revealed that it’s not always easy to strike the right balance between work and home.
She said, “It’s always hard to get the right balance. Work is so demanding, and my work is all over the place.
“Sometimes, I feel like the worst ¬mother in the world, and it’s hard.
“But Scarlet is wonderful and so I must be doing something right.”
Aww bless. I’m sure she’s a great mum!
