London, Aug 3 : English singer songwriter Melanie Chisholm or Mel C as she is known, has no plans of joining the other Spice Girl members in becoming a yummy mummy.
Even though she adores children, Mel C is in no hurry to have any of her own, despite her age or her relationship.
"Arggh!" News of the World quoted her as yelling.
"Don't mention the 'B' word! Everybody asks whether I'm going to be next or whether I'm trying at the moment.
"I hate to disappoint people, but the answer is 'no'. Everyone thinks that because I'm 34 and in a serious relationship, I'm desperate to start a family.
"But I'm not. I love kids and one of the best bits about touring with the Spice Girls this time round was getting to know everyone's babies.
"I think people expected me to start feeling broody, but I didn't and I still don't. I'm sure at some point babies will be part of my future, but I don't think there's anything wrong with feeling happy without them," she said.
Chisholm's relationship with property developer boyfriend Thomas Starr has been going on for six years, and she has homes in London and Wales, and is feeling chilled about life. But motherhood can wait.
"It's great the other girls are mothers, but we all have different paths in life, and mine doesn't include babies right now," she said.
"And while I'm being so honest, I'd better say my current plans don't include marriage either. Maybe one day, but right now neither of us is in any rush to change things," she added.
