Murphy's daughter doesn't call him dad

Former Spice Girl Mel B says her youngest daughter does not call Eddie Murphy dad because she considers Mel's current husband, Stephen Belafonte, as her father.

Mel used a DNA paternity test to prove that her daughter, three-year-old Angel is in fact Eddie Murphy's child.

She explained: "I moved to the beach when I was pregnant with Angel and my mom came to live with me. Obviously the situation was a bit tricky but I just got on with it. I'm not one to wallow. I might for a few hours but then I'll snap out of it. I have a great life. Eddie and I have been in contact on and off for the last three years.

"He's been playing a part of her life for quite some time now, but Angel sees Stephen as her dad. Obviously he's not her biological dad but she calls him daddy."

The 35-year-old singer admitted she thinks her new reality TV show, Mel B: It's a Scary World', will give people the opportunity to see how her family - including her eldest daughter Phoenix, 11, and Stephen's six-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Giselle - "blends" together.

She told new! magazine: "You'll get a really good picture of how we do things and how we function as a blended family with three kids who have different moms and dads. You'll see how we work together."
