Lil’ Suzy and her husband Marc Melone welcomed their daughter, Angelica Juliet Melone, yesterday, Sunday, October 28th, at 3:43 pm.  She weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. and is 20 inches.

Check out our exclusive interview and photoshoot with Suzy, posted just days before she gave birth!

Thanks to CBB Reader Soledad.

At a time when most kids are playing tag on the playground, Suzanne Casale Melone (otherwise known as Lil’ Suzy) was shooting her first music video at one. As one of the queens of the hugely popular 80’s and 90’s music phenomenon Freestyle, Lil’ Suzy was the youngest artist in the music genre to earn the coveted title of Billboard Magazine’s Best New Dance Artist. Today, Lil’ Suzy, 28, is expecting her first child, and talked to CBB about Freestyle, family and being famous at age five.

How did you get your start?

How was it being in the music industry at such a young age?

Take Me in Your Arms was such a huge hit, and still gets played on the radio. What was it like being 12 and shooting your first music video?

Even still, the average 12 year-old isn’t out touring. How did you balance a career with being a normal kid?

You’re literally a child of the Freestyle movement. How would you explain the success of Freestyle, and its ability to still be so mainstream?

Do you think that being labeled a Freestyle artist is a moniker or something positive?

In addition to being a Freestyle artist, you’ve worn many other hats, too.

How did you meet your husband, Marc?

Was he star struck about dating Lil’ Suzy?

And now you’re expecting your first baby. How has the pregnancy been?

How did the fans react to the pregnancy?

What are your plans for the future?

And if baby Angelica shows any musical aspirations?
