*Melanie “Mel B” Brown has checked into a Los Angeles hospital to give birth to her third child.

Mel was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center early this morning with labor pains. Paps caught her looking distressed as she leaned on her husband Stephen Belafonte and a bodyguard, who helped to escort the star from her car to the facility.

The dash to the hospital came shortly after Brown complained about her inability to sleep.

In a series of tweets, she wrote, “can’t sleep arrrhhhh!!!! gonna go to my kitchen and eat,that always helps!!! in LA right now it’s 413am.”

The child will be Brown’s first with Belafonte. In addition to Iris, the singer has another daughter from a previous relationship.
