Comedian Eddie Murphy and Mel B, formerly known as Scary Spice of the Spice Girls, are reportedly having a baby.

British newspaper The Daily Record quotes a source close to the couple as saying the baby was conceived shortly after the couple began dating, making Mel four months pregnant.

The two of them are said to be happy about their big news. Mel reportedly "hasn't stopped grinning" and was said to have sported her bump while in Leeds last week.

She is now back in Los Angeles with Eddie.
