Spice Girl Mel B Keen For Daughter To Enjoy Childhood

Former SPICE GIRL MELANIE BROWN is keen for her daughter to remain a child for as long as possible - and so is careful with how much of her showbiz life she exposes her to.

The WANNABE singer, 29, is determined her five-year-old daughter PHOENIX CHI enjoys her childhood - and is selective at how much she'll let her child know about her entertainment career - including her current stint on Broadway in the musical RENT.

Brown explains, "Because Phoenix has travelled the world with me I'm careful about how much I involve her with my work. I've shown her the theatre where I work so that if she wakes up and I'm not there she knows where I am.

"But I try not to involve her too much in the business because at the end of the day, she's a kid."

The British singer is relishing her time in America and is delighted her own mother is helping her with the childcare chores.

She adds, "This is the longest time I've spent with my mum since I left home. I don't really believe in nannies and stuff like that. You can't be too careful when it comes to your kid.

"And my mum doesn't get to see very much of Phoenix, and she is her first granddaughter, so this arrangement couldn't be better."
