Geri Halliwell has bought Mel B a 7,000 necklace to celebrate Eddie Murphy being named father of her daughter. Geri was said to be ecstatic when DNA tests proved the Hollywood comic is three-month-old Angel Iris' father and wanted to give Mel a gift to celebrate. A source said: "Being a mother herself, Geri really felt for Mel during her ordeal and designed a special diamond and white gold necklace as soon as she heard the good news."
Earlier this week, a paternity test revealed Eddie was Angel Iris' dad. The 'Dreamgirls' star, who already has five children, had consistently denied he was the father.
Mel - who was dumped by Eddie while she was pregnant after a whirlwind romance - expressed her relief. A source said: "Mel is now looking forward to moving on with her life with her new baby." After splitting from Mel, Eddie said at the time: "I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a test."
