Nuzzling her beautiful new baby daughter Madison, Melanie Brown is basking in the glow of new motherhood.
“She is so gorgeous and such a chilled baby,” says the star, as she tells us how she laughed her way through her 15-hour labour on September 1 with loving husband Stephen Belafonte and her 12-year-old daughter Phoenix by her side.
“Phoenix had one leg and Stephen the other… they were winding each other up. I was cracking up so much I didn’t need to push,” she says.
Little Madison is a third daughter for the 36-year-old singer and TV presenter, joining her older girls Phoenix, from her marriage to Jimmy Gulzar, and four-year-old Angel, from her relationship with Eddie Murphy.
Completing the family is seven-year-old Giselle, Stephen’s daughter from a former relationship, who is a regular visitor to the couple’s Los Angeles mansion and joins the exclusive ! photoshoot.
