Mel B says her fellow Spice Girls cried at the news of her engagement ThePipaNews


Mel B has said her Spice Girls co-stars Emma Bunton and Mel C cried when they heard the news of her engagement to hairdresser Rory McPhee.

the 47-year-old singer, whose full name is Melanie Brown, is set to marry for the third time after confirming her engagement to McPhee last month.

Talking to Hey! magazine about the proposal, Mel B said: “For the first time in my life, I’m engaged to a beautiful, honest person who makes me feel protected, cared for and so loved, and I want to enjoy that.”

She said her fellow Spice Girls have given McPhee their stamp of approval, saying: “Emma (Bunton) cried, so did Mel C.

“Everyone was happy for us and said, ‘We love Rory, he’s amazing’ and they’ve all sent congratulatory cards.

“I care about their opinions and it’s really special to me that they like Rory so much, because they’ve never liked any of my boyfriends and they’ve been pretty clear about that.

“They actually pushed me against Rory for ages before the two of us became romantic, but I would tell them ‘It’s not like that; he’s just a really good friend who makes me feel safe.”

The pair have known each other for more than two decades, after Mel B met McPhee through her cousin, actor Christian Cooke, who had been good friends with McPhee since school.

Scary Spice also gave details of the engagement ring McPhee proposed with, saying: “He designed it all by himself and then kept it hidden in his sock drawer for three months.

“I still can’t believe he managed to keep such a secret for so long.”

Mel B filed for divorce from ex-husband Stephen Belafonte in 2017, following allegations of abuse.

They have one daughter, Madison Brown Belafonte. Mel B also has two daughters, Phoenix Chi Gulzar and Angel Iris Murphy Brown, from two previous relationships.

McPhee proposed at Cliveden House in Berkshire.

Mel B told how McPhee got down on one knee: “We went for a walk around the grounds with the dogs before dinner and on the way back Rory suddenly said: ‘I’m going to go back to the room and put the fire on’.

“I didn’t think about it, but I got this funny feeling in my stomach.

“Then, when I walked in the door, he got down on one knee.

McPhee said: “I was so nervous, my lips were trembling.

“I had spent ages writing down all these things I wanted to say, but when it came down to it, I just babbled.”

The full interview with Mel B and Rory McPhee is available in Hello! the newspaper now.
