Former party girl Mellie Stanley from Gypsy Sisters has given birth! Baby boy Richard Joe Whetzel Stanley came into the world June 30th at 1:09 pm, weighing 6 pounds 2 ounces, according to Radar Online. She’s previously tweeted that Whetzel would be the baby boy’s nickname.
A couple of months ago Mellie told Starcasm that she’s glad God “blessed me with a child cause it has changed my life completely.” She also opened up that when she used to drink, it wasn’t to have fun, it was to stop thinking about the pain in her life. Mellie’s had difficult childhood and past abusive relationships, a pattern that often leads to self-medication through alcohol.
She told Radar Online: “I don’t miss drinking. My mother instincts are kicking up in me, and I’m not going back to my being crazy. I don’t want to be a bad mama.
“I wasn’t ready for no kid. But it grows on you. And I figure I was old enough to lay down and spread my legs, so I’m old enough to spread them and have a kid.”
