The Fantastic Four beauty and her husband, film producer Cash Warren, are the proud new owners of a seven bedroom, eight bathroom mansion in Beverly Hills, California - and she has her father, Mark, to thank for helping them seal the deal.

The couple bought the pad, which also boasts a guesthouse and swimming pool, from former TriStar and Orion Pictures movie executive Mike Medavoy.

According to TMZ.com, Mark Alba, a former military officer, will pocket around $250,000 (£197,500) from the deal after splitting the five per cent commission with Medavoy's real estate broker.
