Prince's former wife Mayte Garcia has turned to Eddie Murphy's ex for parenting tips after adopting a baby girl.

The singer/dancer became a mum earlier this year (13) and she has chronicled her transition to parenthood on new U.S. reality show Hollywood Exes, which also features mum-of-five Nicole Murphy.

So, when it came to seeking out tips, she knew exactly who turn to.

Garcia says, "We talk about it. It's a beautiful bonding experience between the women and I, and I'm enjoying every moment of it. She (daughter) had a little something on her eye and (Murphy) was like, 'It'll go away, don't worry about it'."

Appearing alongside Garcia on U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live on Monday morning (15Jul15), Murphy also offered up a great tip to breastfeeding mums, stating, "When you're breastfeeding a baby, you're like a walking pharmacy. If they have, like, rashes or anything like that, you take the breast milk and you (rub it on)."

And Garcia, who lost a child she had with pop superstar Prince, admits she wrestled with the idea of becoming a mum after members of her family let it be known they did not think it was a good idea.

The 39 year old added, "(My mum) was not having it and it was really hard for me to make that decision, but at my age and being around all these women (on Hollywood Exes) I decided I want to be a mum and I was gonna go against her... It's just a beautiful experience."
