Former Spice Girl Mel B has reportedly listed Hollywood star Eddie Murphy as the father of her daughter on the baby's birth certificate.

According to People magazine, a source close to the singer, whose real name is Melanie Brown, said: "He's definitely been named on the birth certificate".

Mel B and Murphy ended their relationship before the baby was born on 3 April.

Before the birth Murphy questioned the paternity of the baby, saying: "I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test."

The singer responded by saying: "I was astonished at what Eddie said – there is absolutely no question that Eddie is the father."
