Scary Spice

Pregnant With

Eddie Murphy's Baby

10/17/2006 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, is four months pregnant with Eddie Murphy's baby. The news comes amid rumors that the couple will marry next month.

Melanie Brown and Eddie Murphy
A source tells TMZ that Brown came into the hip Le Bra Lingerie boutique in West Hollywood on Saturday and was gushing about her impending birth.

Brown, who has a 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, is a frequent shopper at the store and admitted the pregnancy had her feeling tired. Brown added that she was concerned she may be carrying twins since, she noted, they run in Murphy's family.

While on her shopping spree, Melanie picked up nearly $5,000 worth of Eres lingerie for herself and about $300 worth of La Perla men's undershirts and underwear for Eddie.

In April, Murphy's divorce from his ex-wife Nicole became final. The "Daddy Day Care" star has five children with Nicole and another son from a previous relationship.

Murphy's rep told TMZ "We do not comment on Mr. Murphy's personal life."

Calls to Brown's rep were not immediately returned.

People fail to realize that we are all human and we can make mistakes. Nobody is perfect and as Jesus said " he that has no sin cast the first stone".

FOR ALL SINGLE WOMEN WHO WANT CHILDREN: Forget the sperm banks ! Simply have a few dates with Mr. Murphy; you are guaranteed at least one child. (P.S. Spice Posh? Really Eddie.....)

I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THESE BLOGS ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE FOR PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS ISSUES. IT SEEMS THAT MOSTLY PEOPLE THAT ARE UNHAPPY, MISERABLE, WITH HATRED, ETC., ARE SURFING THESE DIFFERENT BLOGS TO LET OUT ALL OF THEIR MISERY ABOUT PEOPLE THAT THEY DON’T KNOW FROM ADAM. IT’S JUST A WAY FOR THEM TO VENT HOW UNHAPPY THEIR LIVES ARE. I BET IF THERE WAS A BLOG ABOUT "JESUS CHRIST", SOME OF THESE PEOPLE WOULD MAKE SOME HATEFUL COMMENTS ABOUT HIM ALSO. SO SAD!!!

My God like baby number seven or something, get a leash on that thing. Yet another person who make yet another baby before really knowing if the relationship is going to work. What irresponsible crap.

So? They are having a baby together, I don't understand all the negativity. He's divorced, so its not like he was cheating on his wife. Yes, his wife was gorgeous but they still got divorced. If him and this woman care for each other good. All of you who are making hateful comments sound like its bothering you on a personal level. Also, its not like they can't afford to have a child. Good for them, I wish them luck and a healthy baby.

What a complete bonehead. She doesn't have a basic understanding of biology, but she's bringing yet another child into the world? I can live with the fact that they aren't married, but for her to say that she's afraid she might be carrying twins because they run in his family is just...well, SCARY (pun intended). Also...at four months, she should have had prenatal care and would know if she was carrying twins. Or maybe stupid obstetricians run in Eddie's family?

Lealay...

Twins occur when one of two things happen: either one sperm and one egg unite to form a zygote and then it splits to form two identical embryos (these are identical twins and this happens complete spontaneously...it has nothing to do with genetic predisposition), or two eggs are released by the MOTHER and they are both fertilized by two separate sperms cells. There can be a genetic predisposition for this, but it ALWAYS has to occur when the mother releases more than one egg. There are millions of sperm...that has nothing to do with it. This is what happens sometimes when people take fertility drugs. So no, the male side of it has nothing to do with whether or not a couple has twins.

WOW - where I come from, this is a child born out of wedlock, and is destined to live on welfare. What a difference being a "celebrity" makes....A "rose" by any other name......

I think we should just wish them well, because what ever is to be will be.
