All Saints Mel Blatt Gives Birth, Bandmates Pull Out Of Charity

All Saints singer Melanie Blatt has given birth as expected by Caesarean section early Friday morning London time to a 6 pound, 6 ounce baby girl named Lily Ella.

Britain's PA News reports that father Stuart Zander, a former member of Jamiroquai (see "Bassist Stuart Zender Leaves Jamiroquai"), was present . A spokesperson for Blatt told the news services that mother and daughter were doing well.

Meanwhile, Blatt's bandmates have cancelled a scheduled charity appearance with crooner Tony Bennett at the giant annual Children In Need marathon benefit citing lack of rehearsal time. The Spice Girls, B*Witched and Boyzone are among the acts still slated for the show kicking off tonight in London.

The Spice Girls will be offering up the first live performance of their new song, "Goodbye," while B*Witched will be doing the same for their latest single, "To You I Belong."
