London: Melanie Brown is pregnant with her first child with husband Stephen Belafonte.

The former Spice Girl already has 12-year-old Phoenix Chi and three-year-old Angel Iris from previous relationships, while Belafonte also has six-year-old daughter, Giselle, from a former partner.

"We`re really excited. We wouldn`t have planned and waited for four yours to have a baby if we weren`t really excited about it and ready for it. Even though you can never really be truly ready," she told Hello magazine.

The couple, who have been married for three-and-half years, celebrated the news with a glass of champagne, reports

"I promptly got a bottle of Cristal champagne and said, `Baby, enjoy this glass because you can`t drink anymore!` I must tell you, she really enjoyed that glass of Cristal," said Belafonte.

The singer also revealed they are not eager to know the sex of the child.

"I haven`t fully decided if I want to know or not. I`m over the first trimester, so I`m past the shady three months and on to safe territory. The first three months, I was pretty sick and tired, to be honest, which I`ve never been before."
