After months of intense media speculation, US funnyman Eddie Murphy has finally confirmed his romance with British singer Melanie B. The silver screen veteran has reportedly been dating the former Spice Girl for over three months, but until now he has remained studiously tight-lipped about the relationship.

The renowned comic made his revelations during a business meeting in Beverly Hills. "I am madly in love with Mel," he said, "but there are no wedding plans."

Eddie divorced his wife Nicole, with whom he has five children, in April this year. His new girlfriend meanwhile has a seven-year-old daughter, Phoenix Chi, from her marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar.

Just last month the two performers were spotted along with their children as they enjoyed a break at the exclusive Four Seasons Hotel in Maui, Hawaii.
