Mel C would like to have more children.

The former Spice Girls singer split from the father of her three-year-old daughter Scarlet, Thomas Starr, in July after 10 years together and is worried she has missed her chance to give her daughter a sibling.

The 38-year-old singer told the latest edition of new! magazine: ''It would be lovely to have more children but I don't know if that's going to happen for me.''

Mel C sees Scarlet as her ''little buddy'' and she loves spending time with her doing girly things like shopping and painting her nails.

She gushed: ''She's amazing. She makes me laugh all day long. She loves singing and dancing and she's really good at art as well - she loves to paint. She starts school next year so she's at nursery at the moment.

''She'll be four in February so she's at that wonderful age where we have lots of really good chats. It's lovely to have my little buddy. We go clothes shopping together and I paint her nails.''

The brunette star is currently busy touring with musical 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and misses Scarlet when she's away, but they stay in touch via Skype and says she is well looked after by a nanny and her father.

Mel said: ''Scarlet sees her daddy a lot as well and I've had a nanny since she was seven months old.''
