She was rarely been seen out and about during her family's time in LA.

But Mel B's beautiful daughter Madison certainly made an impression as she left US shores yesterday.

The 5-month-old looked angelic in a Harper Beckham-style headband as she, her mother and father Stephen Belafonte made their way through LAX, beginning their journey to Australia.

Mel looked likewise stylish in jeans, tan leather boots, and grey silk jacket.

She and Stephen gazed lovingly into each other's eyes, as he manfully carried Madison in one arm and towed the luggage with the other.

The Courier Mail in Australia has reported that the singer is thinking of making the country her permanent home.

Mel – who gave birth to her third child, Madison, in September – worked there for much of last year as a judge on the country's version of The X Factor.

'Mel and her family all fell in love with Australia and the Aussie way of life.'

The pop star has three daughters – Phoenix Chi, 12, Angel, four, and four-month-old Madison.

Mel had previously admitted she had a horrible time in LA after an affair with funnyman Eddie Murphy ended in a bitter court battle.

Her former lover Eddie Murphy failed to acknowledge he was the father of their baby daughter.

She said being pregnant with Angel Iris was a 'horrible time'.

Following a DNA test, Murphy has been
ordered to pay 35,000 a month until the 22-month-old girl reaches 18 – a
total of about 7million.
