Madison Brown had a smashing birthday party filled with animals, thanks to mom. Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Mel B, turned her home into a zoo in honor of her daughter’s third birthday earlier this month. The ‘X Factor’ judge had the most popular wild animals on display at the celebration.
“There were 25 different animals and they educated them about where the animals were from, what they eat,” said the star of the bash. “We had a turtle, a lizard, little baby rats. We had every animal you could possibly think of. They were holding the tarantulas, they were holding the snakes, pythons and chinchillas. It was great, just the five of us.”
Although her kids were thrilled to interact with the wild beasts, Mel B wasn’t as excited to pet a few of the animals. “I was the one that was terrified,” said the star, “the kids loved it. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the snakes.”
Madison was born on September 1, 2011. She is Melanie and husband Stephen Belafonte’s first child together. Mel B has three kids in all.
