Eddie Murphy and
Tracey Edmonds engaged


On Wednesday, Eddie Murphy surprised his girlfriend of less than a year, Tracey Edmonds, with an engagement ring. According to Eddie’s rep, the couple is “very much in love and are excited about spending the rest of their lives together." The two were not free to marry until a month ago, when Tracey’s divorce to singer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds was finalized. Meanwhile Eddie’s previous relationship was with Spice Girl Melanie Brown, who told essence.com last week, “I’m happy if he’s happy.”
