Scary Spice and Eddie Murphy’s Daughter, Angel: More Like Mom or Dad?
Remember back in the day, when Scary Spice was pregnant with Eddie Murphy’s baby? The celebrity couple’s rumored relationship was all over the tabloids in 2006, and sassy Spice Girl — also known as Mel B — welcomed daughter Angel Iris on April 3, 2007.
At first, Eddie was uncertain if he really was Angel’s father, but a DNA test proved it. Mel is the one raising Angel, though Eddie does see her from time to time. These days, daddy’s little Angel is just months away from celebrating her seventh birthday. So what does she look like now?
Mel took Angel, along with her older half-sisters, Phoenix, 15, and Madison, 2, to the grand opening of Sugar Factory in Hollywood back in November 2013.
Based on her shiny iridescent blue pants and big blue bow, there’s no doubt that Angel inherited her mom’s taste for wild, eye-catching fashion. But her eyes, and all her facial features, really, are much more reminiscent of her famous father.
Just look at those wide eyes and that mischievous grin! Angel’s relation to famous funnyman Eddie is pretty hard to ignore. It’s worth noting, though, that some kids will look more like their fathers in their early years. (Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue, as well as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North, both seem to fit the bill.)
But as the kid gets older, it’s very possible that Mama’s features will start to take over. It’s obviously too early to tell if this might be the case for Angel, but it’s definitely a possibility.
Are you surprised by how similar Angel looks to her famous papa? Or do you think she actually looks more like her mom?
