Pregnant Mel B Hosts Baby Shower

Regardless of who the father is, Mel B, is going to treat her and her baby with the good life, starting with a baby shower.

Mel B has hosted a lavish baby shower in Beverly Hills.

The former Spice Girl - who is due to give birth to her second child next month - threw the party for 30 guests at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday.

Guests were treated to champagne and a cake in the shape of a woman's pregnant stomach clad in an edible leopard-print loin cloth.

Mel began the day by getting ready with close friends in a bungalow at the hotel, before joining her guests in a private room by the tennis courts.

The 31-year-old refused to let her acrimonious split with Eddie Murphy spoil her day, even though he is still demanding a paternity test before he accepts the child is his.

Eddie's new girlfriend Tracey Edmonds has insisted he will play a role in the child's upbringing if he is the father.

Tracey said, "Without me getting too deep into it, they had a quick relationship before I got together with Eddie. So that's their business.

There'll be a paternity test and if it is his then he will be responsible."

In December, Eddie was asked about his relationship with Mel and her pregnancy. He angrily replied, "We're not together anymore. And I don't know whose child that it is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."
