Divine Brown is having more sleepless nights -- only this time -- the job is motherhood.

The former prostitute, who was infamously busted in a car on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard with British movie star Hugh Grant, has had a baby girl, 19-month old  Derionna Nyla.

“She is my joy, my life, I couldn’t ask for anything else,” Brown, 40, exclusively tells

Fifteen years ago today, we were waking up to the unfolding drama of one of the biggest showbiz scandals of the time.

On the night of June 27, 1995, Brown -- whose real name is Stella Marie Thompson -- was performing oral sex on the much loved Brit, in his BMW.

Unfortunately for Brown and Grant, outside were two police officers, on a routine patrol in the red light district of the Strip.

The cops’ attention was aroused after Grant repeatedly pressed the brake pedal of his vehicle with his foot, causing the brake lights to flash — and consequently, his world to unravel.

That $50 “trick” landed Brown and Grant, who at the time, was romancing long-term lover Liz Hurley, in the slammer.

“I think about it, it is something that I could never forget,” Brown recalls to

“That’s part of my history, that’s part of me.”

Grant pleaded "no contest" to a charge of lewd conduct and was ordered to pay $1,180 and given two years' probation.

But Brown suffered a bigger blow: she was sentenced to six months in jail.

“How do I look back upon it? I look back upon it and I keep it moving,” she exclusively tells

“I think about it, but s*** happens.”

The former pro insists her days working the streets are long gone -- “history,” she says.

In fact, her brush with fame has given her the fortune -- Brown reportedly earned $1.6 million from publicity alone -- to pursue the career she once only dreamed about.

Having moved from Hollywood to Atlanta in search of the “settled life” with her baby daddy Richard Fettuccini, the pair are working as music producers.

But it’s her main role as a mom that she is savoring.


“It’s the best experience in the world... I just love being a mother.”

We couldn’t help but pose one question: on this auspicious anniversary, what would she tell Grant, if she encountered him today?

“Let’s go and have a baby,” Brown jokes.

“I’m still the same woman, I’m still a good girl... There’s nothing wrong with me, I’m a breeder.”
