'My children will help more than my husband at baby's birth' -- Mel B

FORMER Spice Girl Mel B said she expects her daughters to be more help than her husband when she gives birth to her third child.

The star, who already has two children, Phoenix and Angel, said she was dreading the reaction of her husband Stephen Belafonte.

She told Hello! magazine: "Phoenix and Angel will be there with me during my labour, which is just as well as Stephen will be a complete nightmare.

"He'll probably pass out and require medical attention.

"I pretended to him the other day that I was in labour and he just went white; he didn't have a clue what to do.

"He'll be panicking and probably take us to the wrong hospital."

Mel, whose baby shower guests included Kim Kardashian and Denise Richards, plans to give birth in the same delivery suite where Victoria and David Beckham's daughter Harper Seven was born.

Fellow former Spice Girl Emma Bunton gave birth to her second child, Tate, in May.
