In an interview with Essence.com, Mel B explains that the pregnancy with Eddie Murphy was in fact planned. Read some of this interview because Mel B goes hard, like a mother should with a dead-beat dad.
ESSENCE.com: It’s truly sad to hear such things.
MEL B: My thing was to look at the bigger picture: for a Black guy in 2007 to even go there. As a Black man with “X” amount of kids, you already have a horrible stigma attached to you. Do yourself a favor and be classy.
ESSENCE.com: Have you ever run into Tracey Edmonds?
MEL B: No, never. And if I did I wouldn’t be horrible, I’d be polite. At the end of the day, she¹s in that situation and I’m in a whole different situation.
ESSENCE.com: Did you call Eddie after watching the clip of the show?
MEL B: I did. I called him and we had a really brief conversation and it went something along the lines of, “I’ll call you back”—and he never did.
ESSENCE.com: Was Eddie ever excited about your pregnancy?
MEL B: Oh this was a completely planned pregnancy. This wasn’t some random, “Oops I fell over and I’m pregnant.” I don’t live my life like that. I’m a responsible parent and have been a responsible single parent since I got divorced. This is the one thing that really annoys me. If I wanted to have a baby I would have had a baby a long time ago. I wouldn’t have waited eight years to have another one.
ESSENCE.com: Wow. So you two sat down and decided to have a child?
MEL B: Yes, of course. As soon as I had my IUD removed we proceeded to get pregnant. It happened quicker than we expected but it was perfect timing.
