Mel B Opens Up About ‘Strict’ Approach To Parenting

Section: Celebrity Mums

‘Scary Spice’ Mel B opened up about motherhood on Sunday’s Oprah: Where Are They Now? show, and revealed that she’s a ‘strict parent’.

When the Spice Girls star isn't jetting around the world or judging on talent shows, she's a normal mum - just like the rest of us.

‘I'm a strict mom, but I have a lot of fun with my kids,’ she said. ‘I'm all about routine, especially during the week when it's a school day, I help them with their homework, but then on a weekend, we'll get to hang out with Justin Bieber.’

As well as a fixed routine, Mel – who’s mum to Phoenix, 15, Angel Iris, seven, and Madison, two – Mel makes sure she gives them lots of love.

‘I'd like to think that what I give my kids is a lot of confidence and a lot of love,’ she said. ‘I always tell them I love them. I think that's really important.’

The singer is currently one of this season’s X Factor judges, alongside Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh, with the series returning to our TV screens in the autumn.
