LONDON: Singer Mel C says singer Geri Horner's pregnancy healed the popular pop group Spice Girls rift.
The band was split into two camps after Mel and Victoria Beckham refused to join Mel B, Horner and Emma Bunton for a reunion to celebrate the group's 20th anniversary, but Mel C says finding out Horner and her husband Christian Horner are expecting a baby made them come to their senses.
"Thank God Geri is pregnant because it's made us go, 'Oh my god, this is what's really important'. Let's face it, we are all in our 40s, we are all mothers, we all have partners, we all have careers," Mel C told dailystar.co.uk.
"Of course, it's been awkward - relationships have their ups and downs. I haven't spoken to Melanie B for a while though. It's not that I'm not speaking to her but I haven't spoken to her for a long time.
"Some of my relationships with some of the girls in the band have been difficult at times but I will never not love them," she added.
