Eddie Murphy is expecting his 10th child.
His partner since 2012, Australian actress Paige Butcher, debuted her baby bump this month while out and about in California. This will be the couple’s second child together, and a rep for the comedy icon says that Baby Murphy will arrive some time in December.
Murphy’s eight other children range in age. Eric, 29, is his child with Paulette McNeely, and he has a 27-year-old son named Christian with Tamara Hood. Bria (28), Miles (25), Shayne (23), Zola (18), and Bella (16) are his children with his ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy. He also has an 11-year-old daughter named Angel with former Spice Girl, Mel B.
The Murphy children have spent time together in the past. In 2016, Bria posted an Instagram photo with some of her half-siblings and their father for the holidays.
“Merry Christmas!!! #MurphyFamily” said the caption.
“I really got lucky with my kids,” Mr. Murphy said in 2016 of his ever-growing brood. “There really isn’t a bad one in the bunch, everyone turned out to be really good people. None of my kids are like me, and I’m sure parents say this all of the time, they are all totally different from each other. None of them are chips off the old block. They all have their own thing, They’re good kids.”
