This is it: The 36-year-old was scrunching up her face in pain while Stephen held onto her hand offering his support

Earlier this week she revealed she had tried everything from spicy foods to sex trying to induce labour.

But the former Spice Girl didn’t have to wait too long and early this morning Mel B was rushed into hospital.

The 36-year-old was seen being helped by her husband Stephen Belafonte and a bodyguard as she made her way to a hospital in L.A. with the baby very much on the way.

It's coming: Mel B was rushed into an L.A. hospital in the early hours of this morning after going into labour with her third child

The mother of one appeared to be in pain from contractions and was seen scrunching up her face as she was helped to the hospital.

The singer, real name Melanie Brown, was dressed causally in a pair of light blue linen trousers and a blue hooded jumper with a pirate print on it.

At 4am Mel had complained to Twitter that she couldn't sleep and that her husband was kindly rustling her up a snack.

And breathe: Mel struggled to cross the road despite having the support of the two men and tried to concentrate on her breathing

Despite the early hour Stephen made her a healthy meal and she posted: '@Stephenthinks1 is cooking me chicken and greens,i have the best hubby EVER!!'

And it seems that the food did just the trick as within a few hours Mel was in the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills with the baby on the way.

Yesterday Mel had revealed that she was ready to meet her newest arrival and was doing everything that she could to induce labour.

Nearly there: When Mel was just a few feet away from the hospital door it looked like she might not make it and Stephen looked concerned

The star has been trying various activities to induce labour, including exercise, eating various foods and another well known tactic: sex.

'Ideally I want it to come naturally,' continued Mel B.

'But I've tried everything, I've tried the hot food, the running, the sex, the violence, I've tried it all. It just seems to be stuck and hibernating in there getting bigger and bigger, so it's coming out this week for sure.'

Growing brood: Melanie is already mother to Phoenix Chi, 12, from her marriage to Jimmy Gulzar and Angel, four, from her relationship with Eddie Murphy

Melanie is already mother to Phoenix Chi, 12, from her marriage to Jimmy Gulzar and Angel, four, from her relationship with Eddie Murphy.

The singer and reality star announced that she was pregnant with her third child, her first with husband Stephen on Twitter in March.

A spokesperson for Mel was unavailable for comment earlier today.
