Hollywood star Eddie Murphy and girlfriend Tracey Edmonds, the ex-wife of R&B legend Babyface, are engaged according to a representative for the couple. “Tracey and Eddie were engaged last Wednesday,” Edmonds personal assistant told People. “Tracey and Eddie are both very much in love and are excited about spending the rest of their lives together.” Murphy’s spokesperson also confirmed reports he proposed to his film producer partner with a yellow diamond Cartier sparkler last week. The couple, who have been dating since last year (06), were rumored to have split earlier this month (Jul07) after Murphy was named the biological father of Spice Girl Melanie Brown’s three-month-old child Angel Iris. But Edmonds denied the claims of the break-up, branding them “absolutely not true”. OK magazine first reported the engagement, when the couple was spotted at the July 23 premiere of “Who’s Your Caddy,” which is from Edmond’s Our Stories Films. Edmondâs was wearing a diamond ring on her left ring finger, prompting questions about whether it was an engagement ring.
