Mel C: Daughter gave me confidence
Dec 5, 2012, 4:01 GMT
Mel C credits her daughter for helping her to become 'more confident and courageous'.
The 38-year-old singer - who split from her three-year-old daughter Scarlet's father, Thomas Starr, earlier this year after 10 years with him - admits she experienced 'difficult times' when she first became a mum, and is surprised at just how much her life has changed since giving birth.
She said: 'I'm so much happier, more confident and courageous and it's all thanks to her.
'There were difficult times. In the middle of the night when she'd cry, then I'd start crying - but the rewards are fantastic.
'I knew when I got pregnant that things would never be the same again, but I didn't realise just how much things would change for me.'
Mel admits she found it 'really tough' being away from Scarlet to tour musical 'Jesus Christ Superstar' - in which she played Mary Magdalene - and while she always feels 'guilty' when she is away from her little one, she admits work is like a break because she is 'so exhausted' from looking after her daughter.
She told Britain's OK! magazine: 'I had to go away for two weeks with the 'Jesus Christ Superstar' tour. It was really tough. I don't want to do something like that again.
'Being a stay-at-home mum is probably the hardest job because it's so exhausting looking after children.
'Sometimes coming to work feels like a break! But when you go to work, you do have this guilt. It's hard'.
