The singer had previously opened up to Parents about motherhood, saying, "There's nothing like taking the responsibility or creating the responsibility of bringing a human being into this world and helping it in its first years."
"It doesn't matter the equation that gets you there or what you are to that person. It doesn't matter at all. It is the bond between you and the child."
Melissa is also mother to 13-year-old twins Johnnie Rose and Miller Steven, who she shares with ex Tammy Lynn Micheals.
