Mel B Gives Birth to Baby Girl, Gets Flack for Having Multiple “Baby Daddies”
Melanie Brown, aka, Scary Spice, aka, the sole black girl and only Spice girl you loved back in the day, has just had another baby!
The baby girl, whose name hasn’t been released as of yet, was born on Thursday in L.A. Brown and her growing fam seem to be geeked up about the new arrival, with the former Spice Girl tweeting the following:
“Finally our baby arrives,Stephen nearly passed out, [daughter] Phoenix screamed,I laughed so hard the baby popped out!!! She is just sooo amazing!!”
“I am SOOOOOO blessed my heart is melting!!”
While the arrival of a new baby is always supposed to be an exciting and precious time, the haters have come out of the woodwork to be judgmental unfortunately. One commenter on E! News went in a little hard on the choices of Mel, who now has three daughters by three different men. Oldest daughter Phoenix, 12, from a relationship with a Dutch dancer, and of course, little Angel Iris, 3, who was proven to be the child of comedian Eddie Murphy. This new little girl is her first with husband Stephen Belafonte, who also has a 6-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Call them the Brady Bunch! The individual who hid behind an avatar on the entertainment news website said the following:
“There is NO need for a women to have 3 kids by three different men!! NASTY and how will she tell all three of her daughters they have different fathers??? Hope her girls learn a lesson from their “scary” mother!!!”
Harsh much? While I’m not necessarily a fan of women having multiple children with multiple men, I feel that as long as a woman can adequately take care of said children, who are we to judge? Just like people gave Erykah Badu flack for enjoying having children–and having them with different brothas, if they are well taken care of and the little ones are able to have a relationship with their fathers, then folks should mind their business. Brown and Belafonte have obviously found a way provide a great home for all of the children in their lives, and they all have a father figure in Belafonte. I say let Mel B celebrate this birth, and if you don’t agree with it, just do yourself a favor and don’t do the same thing.
But what do you think? Are people wrong for going at Melanie Brown for having three different “baby daddies?”
