FAMILY PORTRAIT: THE BELAFONTES
The Belafontes were picture perfect in this family portrait that showed Melanie and Stephen along with daughters Phoenix,13, Angel,5, and Madison,1, together for Christmas. Mel B and her family celebrated their first Christmas in Australia last year with Stephen cooking up a storm for his clan.
“He cooks for about 20 people and there’s only five of us in total and Maddy doesn’t even really eat what we eat unless we blend it,” said Mel of her husband this past Christmas season. “He cooks steak, a chicken, a turkey and then all the trimmings, and usually a bit of pork, and the food lasts for days and days. I have to have my sprouts and I love sage and onion stuffing.”
The former ‘Spice Girls’ singer focused on her feelings as a child during the season of giving and wanted to give her kids nothing short of a wonderful experience. “Christmas was magical when I was a kid. We would all do the tree together, we’d make baubles from when I was about four years old that my mother still has. It is just a nice time for everyone to gather together and where I grew up, everyone visits everybody else’s house,” explained the singer.
Madison is Mel and Stephen’s first child together. The couple parent four kids in all.
