Here's something far less shocking than the release of Harry Potter spoilers:

Results of the DNA test taken by Eddie Murphy on June 11 were reportedly received by Melanie Brown on Thursday. And, lo and behold, here's the father of her baby!

Almost Naked

"He's the baby's father, it's official. The baby is undoubtedly, 110 percent his," a source said and Access Hollywood reported regarding the Brown/Murphy saga. "There was no doubt in people's minds anyways, least of all [Brown's]. It wasn't a surprise to her. She knew all along."

The 32-year-old singer gave birth to Angel Iris Murphy Brown on April 3. On the birth certificate, Brown listed the child's last name as Murphy. The little one, like Dannielynn, should be happy to finally have a real papa now.

A rep for the complete and utter deadbeat father Murphy declined to comment on this latest report. But The Hollywood Gossip will speak up: Be a man like Larry Birkhead and take responsibility, Eddie.

Is Eddie Murphy is the dad of former Spice Girl Melanie Brown's baby, Angel Iris Murphy Brown (really, that's her name)?

This paternity question hasn't attracted anywhere near the attention given to Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern (now Dannielynn Birkhead when Larry Birkhead was named the father), the adorable daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith.

But it's still in question... for not much longer. Eddie Murphy, who Brown, 32, has always insisted is her child's father, is due to appear in an L.A. court on Monday to submit to a paternity test.

"Mel knows the baby is Eddie's and can't believe it has got to this point where she has to force him to acknowledge there is a chance he could be the father," a source tells The Sun.

The comedian, who is now with Tracey Edmonds, has so far refused to admit paternity of 2-month-old Angel Iris, born in April.

During an appearance last December on the Dutch talk show RTL Boulevard, Murphy, 46, was asked if he was happy with Mel "since she's pregnant with your child."

"You're being presumptuous because we're not together anymore," Murphy said. "And I don't know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."

On a similar note, don't believe that Britney Spears and Lynne Spears have buried the hatchet just yet. Much as we are all praying this is the case, we must exercise temperance.

Murphy is reportedly supposed to be in London promoting Shrek The Third with costars Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers, but insiders doubt that he would skip out on the DNA test.

"If he tries to duck out of this test, there will be all hell to pay," says the source.

Melanie Brown (a.k.a. Mel B, a.k.a. Scary Spice) is also scheduled to attend the hearing.

If Murphy shows up, it will be the first time the former couple has come face to face since the Dreamgirls actor dumped her for Edmonds, a film producer, last year.

The source adds:

"At least this way they will know officially whether Eddie is the daddy or not and move on from there. This is about Angel knowing for sure who her dad is."

Or whether Brown can make serious bank off Murphy, who makes $20 million a picture. Even for films like Norbit. But that's neither here nor there.

All of a sudden, Victoria Beckham looks like one of the more sane Spice Girls. As much as we poke fun at her, there's no doubt those kids are the spawn of David Beckham.

Eddie Murphy might know a lot about comedy.

But he could learn a thing or two dozen about being a father from Larry Birkhead.

Nearly Nude Spice

Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, who gave birth to her daughter Angel Iris a month ago today, claims that not only does Murphy know that he's the dad of her baby, but the pregnancy was planned!

Last December, Murphy had the nerve to publicly deny that he fathered the child, telling a Dutch television station Brown had something in common with Anna Nicole Smith: "We don't know whose child it is until it comes out and has a blood test."

Now, Brown tells Extra that Murphy is refusing to take a paternity test.

"The crazy thing is, this baby was planned, and he knows it's his," Brown said. "This is what is mind-boggling."

"Be responsible. It's as simple as that," Melanie rightfully told her ex-boyfriend.

And you can't fault her for saying so. The comedian's behavior is stranger than how another former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, flaunts her giant boobs.

The baby was even born on the Murphy's birthday, prompting Brown to joke: "I think my child has a cosmic sense of humor."

Perhaps. But no way she's funnier than Ruby Sweetheart.

Dannielynn may soon have company in the land of troubled tykes.

Despite the fact that Eddie Murphy has denied fathering her baby, former Spice Girl Melanie Brown has named her new daughter Angel Iris Murphy Brown... in honor of the comedian.

Peepshow Performer

"Melanie spent a while deciding on the baby's name," a friend of the singer tells People magazine. "It was inspired by a number of things."

On Tuesday - before meeting up with other Spice Girls - Brown, who lives in Los Angeles, explained the name in a brief statement released through her London reps.

"Angel, as she was my little angel through my pregnancy," she said. "Iris, as it's my grandma's name, Murphy because [Eddie Murphy] is the dad and Brown because I'm the mum!"

Angel Iris is the second child for the former Scary Spice. She has an 8-year-old daughter, Phoenix Chi, with her ex-husband, dancer Jimmy Gulzar.

In March, Murphy's new girlfriend, film producer Tracey Edmonds, told Chicago's Power 92 radio station of Murphy: "There'll be a paternity test and if it's his then he'll be responsible."

Once that takes place, we just hope Eddie takes the sort of action that Larry Birkhead has so notable followed through on.

It's a great big Spice World out there.

At least it felt that way at a London church Saturday, when 11-month-old Bluebell Madonna, the daughter of Geri Haliwell, got a hand from her hot godmother, Victoria Beckham, at her christening.

Victoria Beckham Out and About

The event marked a near-complete Spice Girls reunion: Posh Spice made the ceremony along with Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice).

The only no-show on this day was Melanie Brown (a.k.a. Scary Spice and possible Eddie Murphy baby mama), who was unable to attend after just giving birth.

A source close to the pop pals told People, "It was a special Spice day."

For all the talk about Victoria Beckham's large breasts and the general absurdity surrounding her and her husband, David Beckham, there is little doubt that the girls had a lovely time Sunday.

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.

We know, we know. This one's no contest in terms of scarinessor cuteness, but both of these beautiful baby bumps carry with them a little controversy. See below.

Bridget Moynahan Nude

At left, an eight-months pregnant Melanie Brown steps out in Beverly Hills Tuesday, proudly showing off her big belly. The ex-Spice Girl, known simply as Scary Spice to dozens of adoring fans, recently celebrated a festive baby shower.

She says the baby's daddy is Eddie Murphy. He denies it, is demanding a paternity test be conducted and seems to enjoy dating Tracey Edmonds. So it goes.

At right, a four-months pregnant Bridget Moynahan waves to photographers at LAX airport. There's no doubt who knocked up this actress - Tom Brady - but what's scandalous is the fact that he recently broke up with her and that his new squeeze, Brazillian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, may also be pregnant.

No one's criticizing the Patriots QB's taste in women, but may need a better role model than Kevin Federline. Fool apparently doesn't believe in using protection.

Which baby bump's better? Leave a comment and let us know.

If only all pregnancies and births went as smoothly as those for Jayden James Federline.

This hasn't been the case for former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, however.

Mel B.

After a public break-up, the singer still insists ex-boyfriend Eddie Murphy is the father of the baby she's carrying and says she can't imagine why he would openly question the child's paternity.

"I am obviously upset and distressed at some of the comments made by Eddie Murphy to the media," Brown, who is in the second trimester of her pregnancy, said in the statement released Thursday. "I have no idea why anybody would want to conduct themselves in this kind of manner about such a personal matter in such a public way.

"My main concern is for the well being of my (seven-year-old) daughter Phoenix and of course the baby. I was astonished at what Eddie said â€" there is absolutely no question that Eddie is the father."

Brown only learned that her relationship with Murphy had ended when she landed in Los Angeles and received voicemails from friends telling her about the TV interview in which the comedian questioned the baby's father.

That seems almost as awkward as James Blunt being criticized by a puppet.

Meanwhile, that same night at the New York City premiere of his movie Dreamgirls, Murphy stepped out with his new girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds, a movie producer and the ex-wife of singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds.

"This was extraordinarily brazen what he did," a friend of Brown with a good vocabulary said. "If he had fallen in love with somebody else, that would have been pretty bad anyway, but to then wheel her out in public for a deliberate photo op, when Melanie's pregnant! That's a rat, frankly."

Ouch. A rat. Between that and the use of "slut" by Bette Midler in reference to Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, we're at least glad people aren't holding back their feelings these days.

We thought that Eddie Murphy and Scary Spice (aka Melanie Brown) were set to get married ... or at least bear a child together.

After revealing that he and the former Spice Girl have broken up, however, Murphy also seemed to question whether or not he actually was Brown's baby daddy. That's never good.

The Dreamgirls star was asked on a Dutch TV show this weekend if he was happy with the pregnant Melanie, to which he responded:

"You're being presumptuous because we're not together anymore. And I don't know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."

Well ... alrighty then. A meeting between Peter Cook and Christie Brinkley sounds less awkward than this interview.

The couple started dating in June, just two months after the actor's divorce was finalized. Between the pair, Murphy and Brown have seven children. It remains to be seen, however, if they'll beat out Flavor Flav and conceive an eighth as a unit.

Stay tuned and find out!

Evidently, a nude Victoria Beckham is an ugly sight. That sucks for the former Posh Spice.

But what about Scary Spice in the buff? You'll have to ask Eddie Murphy. In case there was any doubt the comedian has seen his singer girlfriend naked, it should now be erased:

TMZ has learned that former Melanie Brown is four months pregnant with Murphy's baby. The news comes amid rumors that the couple will marry next month.

Brown visited the hip Le Bra Lingerie boutique in West Hollywood on Saturday, gushing about her impending birth and purchasing more underwear than Lindsay Lohan goes through on a typical Saturday night.

Melanie picked up nearly $5,000 worth of Eres lingerie for herself and about $300 worth of La Perla men's undershirts and underwear for Eddie.

Melanie admitted the pregnancy had her feeling tired and was concerned she may be carrying twins because they run in Murphy's family. But at least she could bond over that with Kim Porter.

In April, Murphy's divorce from his ex-wife Nicole became final. The actor has five children with Nicole and another son from a previous relationship.

While Murphy's rep told TMZ ,"We do not comment on Mr. Murphy's personal life," the same doesn't hold true for The Gossip:

Way to go, Eddie! With seven kids, you're now one drunken tirade away from being the next Mel Gibson. We wish you the best of luck.
