Mel B has spilled the details of her engagement to her boyfriend of three years.
On a special episode of Celebrity Gogglebox, the former Scary Spice performer told her friend, comedian Ruby Wax, all about the romantic proposal arranged by her now-fiancé, Rory McPhee.
The 36-year-old hairdresser popped the question while on a getaway in Berkshire, England.
“He said, ‘I love you, you’re my best friend and I want to spend the rest of my life with you,'” Mel B, real name Melanie Brown, recounted.
“There were rose petals everywhere, a log fire, a hotel – which was Cliveden. It was very romantic. I love flowers.”
A source shared the news with The Sun earlier this week, adding that the singer said yes to a pear-shaped diamond ring.
“Mel is so happy and this is such a big deal for her because she has been though such a lot.
“It has taken a huge amount for a man to get her to trust him and to believe in love again.
“Rory is from her home town Leeds, he’s known her for years. He’s the absolute opposite of so many of the guys she had relationships with,” the source shared, adding that McPhee is a “normal down-to-earth guy with good morals.”
The pair originally met in 2018 in Los Angeles but got serious a year later when Mel B returned to the UK for the Spice Girls Reunion Tour.
The couple now work together on The Masked Singer Australia, with McPhee creating iconic looks for his girlfriend.
This will be the 47-year old singer’s third marriage following a two-year marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar from 1998 to 2000, and a ten-year marriage to film producer Stephen Belafonte from 2007 and 2017. She also dated actor Eddie Murphy for nine months in 2009.
She has three daughters, one from each of those relationships – sharing 23-year-old Phoenix Chi with Gulzar, 15-year-old Angel Iris with Murphy, and 10-year-old Madison with Belafonte.
