Melanie Brown has given her baby daughter the surname of ex-boyfriend Eddie Murphy, the former Spice Girl said in a statement Tuesday.
Brown, 31, gave birth to Angel Iris Murphy Brown on April 3 in Santa Monica, Calif. She listed Murphy’s name on the birth certificate.
She said the name was inspired by a number of things.
Murphy, 46, has said he’s not sure he’s the father.
Brown, known as Scary Spice when she was in the megahit group of the ’90s, has an 8-year-old daughter, Phoenix Chi.
Murphy, whose screen credits include “Dreamgirls,” has five children from his marriage to Nicole Mitchell Murphy.
