Mel B Gives Birth in LA; Father Unknown

Mel B welcomed her second child this week, with the healthy birth of a baby girl in Los Angeles.

The as-yet-unnamed infant “is completely healthy with a good head of hair,” Brown’s spokesperson commented. “No name has been decided on as yet, and she is purely known as Baby Brown.”

The former Spice Girl, who has chosen to focus on acting in recent years after her solo career flopped, faces a paternity battle with her former boyfriend, Hollywood star Eddie Murphy, after he very publicly declared the child might not be his.

“Now you’re being presumptuous because we’re not together any more,” Murphy said in an interview last year, just days after Brown had commented their relationship was going well.

“And I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn’t jump to conclusions, sir.”

“I have no idea why anybody would want to conduct themselves in this kind of manner about such a personal matter in such a public way,” Brown said in her rebuff.
