Eddie Murphy Pops the Question

7/29/2007 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Dreamgirls" star Eddie Murphy proved that girlfriend Tracey Edmonds is his favorite girl of all, by presenting her with a ginormous yellow diamond engagement ring this past week.

The ring was massive, but don't expect a blowout wedding. Murphy's first wedding to Nicole Mitchell in 1993 (they split in 2005), was a lavish $1.5 million affair, and is ranked by Forbes in the top ten most expensive celeb weddings of all time. This one, a friend told OK! magazine, "will be a private wedding. Something low key and very romantic."


Murphy is currently embroiled in a bitter battle with former girlfriend/baby mama Scary Spice aka Melanie Brown, with whom he has a child. He and Mel split right before he met Edmonds.

Just Makes You Say Hmmmm!    

So they got engaged. What is the hurry? It hasn't been that long since Eddie and Nicole broke up. In that time he has had relationships with two other women/that we know of (one resulting in a child), and is now engaged. I believe that Tracey and Babyface broke up after or around the same time as Eddie and Nicole. My math tells me that it has been just about twelve months since Mel got pregnant (her baby was born in April/per no prematurities, complications, etc.). Eddie and Tracey began dating before Mel had the baby, which hasn't been a year yet. And here it is that they're engaged. I say again what is the hurry? I would think that both of these people, having been married before, would be encouraged to take a step back and get to know each a other a little better, before rushing into marriage. I gave Tracey more credit for being levelheaded, and Eddie for being more mature ---- but maybe not in their personal lives. Eddie is involved in a paternity situation with another woman, not his fiance'. And why is there a situation? Why did he claim that the baby is not his? Seems like it has been proven that it is. If Tracey thinks that this will in no way affect their relationship, then she is in denial. These people are not teenagers that can't live without one another. Slow down!

Eddie Murphy is a freak show!!! He needs to grown up! I cant believe Tracy Edmonds (and why has she not changed her name... FAME WH*RE!!!) is marrying him. Maybe she too is a nut job. He needs to own up to responsibility he has a baby with Melanie B. Im glad she exposed him and his ridiculous behavior!

Eddie great actor + Tracie good movie producer does not equal a good marriage. As for Nicole, ex-wife is getting her alimony and child support and dating Michael Jordan. And as for Scary Spice Mel, I'm not throwing any benefits for her either. She had no business having unprotected sex with some man, even Eddie Murphy, without protection AND birth control. Mel thought having a baby would keep Eddie, well she has found out what every woman SHOULD know --- a man only stays if he wants to stay.

Murphy is a dead beat and needs to have his _ick tied in a knot so he can't father anymore children. Edmonds should be embarrassed with her high and mighty speech of supporting black women, directors on the red carpet the other night. She is an awful roll model for her sex and her race.

I hope the child finds a strong male role model, if not than I hope the Mother can make up for the lack of this influence.

I hear the ring is huge. And he's got enough money to support any child of his. And don't the courts know it!

Takes more than money to support a child. Too many of these kids have this and are messed up. Kids with little can have strong male influences in their lives turn out great.

Tracey, why would you want a man who denied his child and degraded the mother of his child (Scary Spice) publicly by saying that her child could be by anyone? He's a spineless douch bag. Someone need to remind him that he was the one that was caught with a transvestite, and the transvestite is now dead. What is up with that? According to his first wife, he is not the most affectionate man in the world & he has five or six kids from his 1st marriage. He has too much baggage. You need to run from this so called man as fast as you can....

Ms. Know-it all, Reji, and Dee need to shut up. think before you type. You don't know Mel-B. She got cheese too. Ain't nobody hatin on Eddie for the simple fact he is a very talented person. Remember just because he's famous he isn't exempt from society's expectations. Even if it was a brother who lived in the hood we would talk the same way. it pisses people off more because he is supposed to be a role model for the young men out on the block having to sell crack to take care of their kids. He got mad money and aint tryin to step up. So what is it telling our young men? thats its okay to hop from woman to woman no matter what the time frame is and to have all these kids runnin around seein they daddy on the red carpet with different women when it should be their mother. So get ya mind right. Big Ups to MEL-B and Norbit was funny as hell. Oh yeah i grew up watchin Beverly Hills Cop cause my momma in love with Eddie. We have seen it all.

Who cares who Tracey's snobby ass marries. She only wants to be with high profile fools. She's over the hill herself and has to get in where she fits in. So all she can get is a closet freak. I would rather have Charlie than Eddie any day.

By the way, it's funny how all the women Eddie choses look like guys in drag!!!!!!!!! Why doesn't he get what he really wants - A MAN!!!!! At least she will know where Eddie is at night - DOWN ON SANTA MONICA BLVD.

Forget Scary Spice too! She's no big deal or why would she have messed with Eddie in the first place. She knew he had a slew of kids when she got with him and liked Trannys. As far as Nicole is concerned and saying Eddie isn't affectionate, well why did her ass have 7 or 8 kids with him? All these women got wth Eddie because he is a rich star. If any three of them saw him as Joe Blow on the street they wouldn't give him the time of day. So I hope Nicole, Scary and Tracey (all golddiggers) get what they deserve from him in the end. Also I hear there is no bigger dog in Hollywood than Babyface Edmonds.

Yes Eddie picked up a Hawaiian Transvestite and got caught blowing the Tranny and yes he had her killed because the Tranny said to others and others knew that Eddie had been going out with her and to other GUY friends of that Tranny and she was about to tell all and Eddie did his thing I guess....Sick...But the kicker is he will come into this crazy disfunctional family that tracy has. They are all FAT and weird and the mother and son had gastric bypass surgery but the sun got fat again...its a sad sad family!
