Mel B has shared a gorgeous new picture of herself and daughter Phoenix Chi ahead of the teenager's 16th birthday.

X Factor judge Mel snapped the selfie last night after picking up Phoenix from an evening out and it appears she's in denial about the milestone celebration...

While Phoenix understandably cannot wait to mark her Sweet 16th, Mel is clearly feeling a little uneasy about her daughter being so grown up!

Sharing the photograph on Instagram, Mel told her followers: "Just picked up @phoenixisphoenix right now and she will not stop telling me she turns 16 in a few days, my face says it all..."

Oh dear!

Mel was the first Spice Girl to have a baby, welcoming Phoenix into the world with her then-husband, Dutch dancer Jimmy Gulzar, on 19 February 1999. The couple divorced a year later.

The singer has since gone on to have two more daughters, Angel - who she had with actor Eddie Murphy, and Madison - who she shares with now-husband Stephen Belafonte.

Mel is also step mother to Stephen's daughter from a previous relationship, Giselle.

Although Mel is not looking forward to her little girl being all grown up, we bet she'll be throwing a mega Sweet 16th party for Phoenix!
