<p><span></span>Proud mom <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=mel%20b&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Mel B</strong></a> introduces her new daughter, Madison, for the first time and gushes about her little bundle of joy in the new issue of <em>Life & Style</em>, on newsstands Wednesday.<br />
"I had been pregnant for so long!" Melanie tells Life & Style in an exclusive interview. "I was ready to meet my baby. It was like, Finally, she's arrived!"
The 36-year-old former Spice Girl welcomed Madison Brown Belafonte on Sept. 1. The little girl joins Melanie's daughters, Phoenix, 12, and Angel, 4, from previous relationships, and dad Stephen Belafonte's daughter, Giselle, 7.
"I thought she would come out manic because we're so hyper. But she's calm," beams Melanie. "I'm up every three hours at night," she says. "You think you're going to sleep when they sleep, but you don't. I just end up staring at her."
For all the exclusive pictures of Melanie, her daughter and the entire family, pick up this week's issue of Life & Style on newsstands Wednesday!
