Two became one for real for Sporty Spice.

Melanie Chisholm, 35, and her boyfriend of more than six years, Thomas Starr, welcomed a baby girl Sunday afternoon in London, according to the Spice Girl's personal website.

"The baby weighed 8 lb 3 oz," the site says. "Both Mum and baby, named Scarlet Starr, are doing fine."

In addition to learning the ropes of motherhood—Scarlet is the "Wannabe" singer's first child—Mel C is working on her fifth solo album.
