Mel B pregnancy riddle
13:30 18 October 2006
Mel B is reportedly pregnant with twins.
The former Spice Girl - who is romancing Hollywood actor Eddie Murphy - gushed to staff at West Hollywood's Le Bra Lingerie boutique that she was four months pregnant.
A store spokesman, Andy Behrman, confirmed: "Melanie Brown came in and was telling everybody she was four months gone.
"She said she suspects twins because they run in Eddie's family."
The singer, real name Melanie Brown, who is a regular visitor to the hip boutique, spent nearly $5,000 on Eres lingerie for herself and a further $300 on La Perla men's undershirts for her actor partner Eddie.
Melanie - who has a 7-year-old daughter, Phoenix Chi, from her marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar - also admitted to store assistants that the pregnancy was making her feel tired.
The pop star started dating Eddie - who has five children with ex-wife Nicole and another son from a previous relationship - in the summer. They are rumoured to be getting married next month.
Eddie's representative refused to comment on the pregnancy news, saying: "We do not comment on Mr. Murphy's personal life."
