Melanie Martin, Aaron Carter’s fiancée, recently celebrated her first holiday without him… and she and her family found a way to honour the late singer.
According to Carter family sources… Melanie and Prince, the son she shared with Aaron, celebrated Thanksgiving with her family. Prince recently celebrated his first birthday.
We’re told Aaron used to be in charge of cooking the turkey, so Melanie and her family took on the task in Aaron’s honor… doing their best to match his culinary skills.
Melanie also continued another of Aaron’s Thanksgiving traditions by watching both “Home Alone” and “Iron Man” on Turkey Day, which Melanie and the brood did.
Obviously, the first holiday following the death of a loved one is quite difficult… Jennifer, Melanie’s sister, brought a four-legged friend to the family gathering: Aaron’s dog Zelda.
The news was first reported by TMZ… The day after Aaron died, Jennifer and her fiancé Max adopted Zelda, a 3-and-a-half-year-old German shepherd. Melanie was overjoyed to see the dog.
Melanie survived a difficult Thanksgiving, but she is dreading December, which is filled with holidays and milestones. Aaron’s birthday and their anniversary fell in December.
Melanie is still trying to come to terms with Aaron’s death… one day at a time.
