Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown welcomed a baby girl early Tuesday.

"The baby is completely healthy with a good head of hair," a rep for Brown said in a statement. "Mother and baby are now resting. No name has been decided on as yet and she is purely known as Baby Brown."

Hey, that's a better name than most celebrity babies end up with.

Scary Spice, 31, was taken to Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., at around 5.30 Monday and the baby was born just after midnight Tuesday.

The new arrival - who weighed in at 5 lb., 4 oz. - joins 8-year-old sister Phoenix Chi, Brown's daughter with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar.

The paternity of the new baby, however, is in question.

Brown has said that her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Murphy - who shares a birthday with the infant and turned 46 Tuesday - is the father. But he has disputed that claim.

"I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test," Murphy said on a Dutch TV show (possibly the same one just frequented by Snoop Dogg) in December when asked about impending fatherhood.

"You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."

Brown later released a statement saying she was "upset and distressed" by Murphy's comments. In March, Murphy's new girlfriend, film producer Tracey Edmonds, told Chicago's Power 92 radio station of Murphy and Brown:

"Without me getting too deep into it, they had a quick relationship before I even got into that, before I got into a relationship with Eddie... So that's like their business that's going on. There'll be a paternity test and if it's his then he'll be responsible."

This paternity test battle comes just as Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern are embroiled in a similar fight over the rights to the late Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter Dannielynn. Only they both want to be the dad.

Regardless of what happens with Melanie Brown's situation, The Gossip would like to welcome another beautiful celebrity baby. We're sure former Spice Girl and fellow new mom Emma Bunton shares that sentiment.

Here's what newborn celebrity babies, such as Dannielynn Hope, have to look forward to:

Lots of time spent in bed while their parents get drunk downstairs.

Okay, that may not be entirely accurate, but Gwyneth Paltrow says she and her fellow famous moms often get together for what are probably the world's most stylish play dates.

"I have friends like Stella McCartney or Madonna, and very often our children get together to play," Paltrow tells Spanish Vogue. "Although usually we leave them in bed and stay to drink a glass of wine."

The actress and husband Chris Martin are parents to Apple, who turns 3 in May, and 11-month-old Moses. She also somehow supports Lindsay Lohan.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have Lourdes, 10, and Rocco, 6, and are in the process of adopting David Banda, 17 months; and McCartney and husband Alasdhair Willis have a son, Miller, 2, and a 3-month-old daughter, Bailey.

Paltrow took the last few years off of making movies to focus on raising her kids, and recently called being a housewife "amazing."

And she still has a sense of awe when it comes to her children. "When I look at my daughter's skin, it's the most beautiful and perfect in the world," she tells the magazine.

Older men may disagree, citing Antonella Barba as possessing the best skin on the planet - but we see where Paltrow is coming from.

We don't see, however, how underrated baby Kingston Rossdale got left off the play date list. Give Gwen Stefani a call, Gwyneth.

It's been quite the week for celebrity babies.

Yesterday, it was Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross cranking out two of them! Today, we're happy to report that Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip star Amanda Peet, 35, has given birth to a baby girl.

Alex Rodriguez, Cynthia Rodriguez and Kids

Sources say Peet went into labor on Tuesday, resulting in the debut of Frances Pen - named after Peet's mom, Penny.

Yeah, it's a little strange, this name. But it's no Thijs or Heaven Rain.

The actress and her screenwriter husband, David Benioff, 36, were married in September 2006, shortly after Peet announced she was preggers.

This is the first child for both. Next up on the celebrity baby watch - Aussie actress Naomi Watts, former Felicity star Keri Russell and TV's lovable, now-married Bachelorette, Trista Sutter.

Congrats to Amanda and all these expectant ladies.

Tom Brady may have memorized the New England Patriots' playbook. But it looks as though he's failing at God's instruction manual.

Bridget Moynahan Nude

The quarterback broke up with actress Bridget Moynahan last year - but reports are now surfacing that the All-Pro knocked has knocked up his ex-girlfriend.

The pregnancy was first reported by the New York Post columnist Liz Smith.

While Moynahan, who is over three months pregnant, is said to be "healthy and excited," we're not sure how Gisele Bundchen feels about this development.

The actress, a former model who starred in the ABC drama Six Degrees, and the star quarterback, ended their three-year relationship at the end of last year.

This will be the first child for both.

Let's hope it has a brighter future than that of Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern.

Okay, so Diddy likes to check out Jessica Biel. While he could learn a thing or two about social tact, it's hard not to be enamored with that booty. And a little ogling never hurt anything.

As for Diddy partying (and possibly sleeping with) Sienna Miller, there's probably not a lot to that rumor. Seriously, who isn't rumored to be hitting that these days? Heck, even the nerdy guy who runs The Hollywood Gossip server has probably been linked romantically to the hard-partying, often nude actress by now.

Diddy, Yo

By and large, Mr. Sean Combs seems to have his priorities in line - seeing as he's a rap star and entertainment mogul, that's no small feat. Check out these cute pics of Diddy, longtime girlfriend Kim Porter, and their adorable newborn twin daughters, D'Lila and Jessie.

Wow. Those are some cute kids. Eat your heart out, Suri Cruise.

We love kids here at T.H. Gossip. All of them.

But there's no doubt certain celeb spawn dominate the press. Suri Cruise is huge (and Asian). Every move of Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is fawned over. And the fact that the identity of Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern's daddy is still in question does little to quell the fascination with that little bundle of joy.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

That said, here's one of the celebrity babies we definitely don't see enough of. With fiancé Peter Sarsgaard at the Sundance Film Festival to promote their short film High Falls, Maggie Gyllenhaal and 3-month-old daughter Ramona kick back at Sunday brunch with a pal.

Wow, she's a cutie. We love Sarsgaarenhaal.

Rock Star: Supernova host Brooke Burke has other things on her mind aside from choosing the next Chris Daughtry.

The beauty her fiancé, former Baywatch star David Charvet, welcomed their first child on Monday at St. John's hospital in Santa Monica, California.

Cat Woman Costume

Her name is Heaven Rain Charvet. She weighs 6 pounds, 8 ounces and 18 3/4 inches long. Seems to us that this newborn and the baby son of Matt Lauer, Thijs, would be a match made in ... nevermind.

"Mother and baby are doing very well and are now resting comfortably at home," Burke's rep said. "Everything went well with the delivery, and Rain looks just like her mother."

According to a source, Burke and Charvet chose the name because "rain grows everything."

Perhaps Ellen Pompeo should go stand under some in that case. She could grow a shrinking waistline.

The two, who have been friends for several years, began dating in 2005 and became engaged in August of 2006. The new parents plan to marry this spring.

Charvet told Us Magazine: "I am the happiest man alive!

But the dude in this Katie Rees picture might have something to say about that.

He's underrated within the world of celebrity babies.

But even Maddox Jolie-Pitt and that cool hair may need to take a backseat to a new cuteness contender:

Say hello to Harry Letterman.

The toddler is seen here playing with his father, David Letterman. While little is known about the toddler's mother, this much is known about Harry himself: the kid is adorable.

Suri Cruise has some serious competition all of a sudden.

Welcome to the ultimate cuteness showdown. As the year draws to a close, we thought you might enjoy a photo comparison of three of the sweetest humans to join the population in 2006. Talk about a toss-up! We present TomKat spawn Suri Cruise (left), Gwen Stefani's son Kingston James McGregor Rossdale (center) and Brangelina product Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt (right) with her mother.

Suri Cruise and Babar

Three babies. 10 names. Infinite cuddliness. Who would you rather spend time with if you had the chance? It's a complete toss-up as far as T.H. Gossip is concerned, but we will say this much: There is absolutely no way in hell that Tom Cruise is Suri's biological dad. Look at that little Asian cutie! Something's up here.

They've gone through some rocky times - are they divorced? are they not divorced? - but Matt Lauer and his wife, Annette, are now happy and healthy ... with a new born baby at home.

Matt, Annette Lauer

The couple's third child, a son named Thijs, was born earlier today.

"The baby was born this morning at 9:37 a.m. in New York City. He weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz.," Today spokesperson Megan Kopf said. "Mom, Dad and baby are all doing well."

The baby's unusual name - pronounced "Tice" - is a shortened form of Matthijs, which is Dutch for Matthew. No, it doesn't make sense for us, either. How normal does Jayden James Federline sound now?

"Annette is Dutch and in following with her heritage, the baby was given a Dutch name," said a source. Or maybe we should say, "a thsource."

Thijs joins brother Jack, 5, and sister Romy, 3. Despite the name mockery, we are very happy for Lauer and the Mrs. We hope they're as happy as Petra Nemcova and James Blunt.
