Spice Girl Mel C says daughter, 13, is ‘a handful’ in rare parenting chat

Melanie Chisholm – otherwise known as Sporty Spice – has opened up to OK! about her relationship with her 13 year old daughter Scarlet.

Mel C, 48, tells us: “Any parents of teenagers will know exactly how much of a handful they can be. But she’s absolutely wonderful. She really is my best friend.”

When asked if she could envisage her daughter, whose father is her ex-partner Thomas Starr, following in her footsteps, Melanie admits she can’t tell at this point.

“Scarlet’s not a singer and she’s not sporty,” she says. “She’s on her own path. Where that will lead, who knows? But I’m very proud of her," she said.

Melanie – who has been in a relationship with music executive Joe Marshall for seven years – currently splits her time between London, Liverpool and Los Angeles as she juggles her music career with being a mum.

It's been a busy summer for Mel as she reflected on performing at Glastonbury in June. She sang Spice Up Your Life and 2 Become 1 with the band Blossoms.

And Melanie teased a Spice Girls comeback for 2023 as she shared: "I was down in those fields in the midst of those magical festival feelings and I thought, we need to make this happen.

“I’d love to be back on that stage with the girls. And we know it’s what the fans desperately want."

She continued: "You can count me in, but I think others might need more convincing!

"There’s nothing we’d love more than to get Victoria back."

And as much as Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Horner want Posh to return alongside them, a source previously told us she has been feeling apprehensive ahead of her big return.

“Victoria does recognise the Spice Girls as being a huge success and she did enjoy it," the source said.

"People think she’s snubbing them or thinks she’s above them but there was a real confidence issue there, she’s very self-conscious."

“She is nervous because she knows the world will be watching her out of all of the girls.”

They added: "Posh Spice and Victoria Beckham are two different people and that is how it has been for a long time.

"A lot of people look back on their younger life and can’t believe they were the person they were then and that’s what it is with Victoria."
