The star, who's best known as Sporty Spice, noted that it's "taken an incredibly long time" for her to feel "ready" to tell her story.

"The last few years have given me an opportunity to reflect on the incredible career I’ve had and the huge obstacles I've managed to overcome," she explained.

"Melanie is an icon and an inspiration to so many people; and, given the incredible life she’s led, I would always have wanted to publish her book," shared Oliver Holden-Ream, the editorial director of Welbeck Publishing Group. "But hearing her talk about what she’s been through and the message of strength and hope that she wants to convey, it has made me more excited to bring Who I Am to readers and fans everywhere. It’s a privilege to help her tell her story to the world."

Chisholm is the last member of the Spice Girls to release a book, as Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown have also released memoirs, with Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton having published works as well.
