London: Former Spice Girl Mel C says being a mother is difficult but a brilliant job nevertheless.

The 38-year-old singer, who has a three-year-old daughter Scarlett with partner Thomas Starr, said whenever she looks at the kid she feels it is the best thing to have happened to her, reported Contactmusic.

"It`s like a ray of sunshine every day. I think the best part of my day is waking up in the morning and going to see her, then having breakfast together.

"There`s no doubt it`s the hardest job in the world and there are moments when it is so, so tough, but you can`t get over how brilliant it is having a new person in your life who is so young and energetic.

"It`s getting harder as Scarlett is starting to form her own opinions," she said.
