No, you're not delirious: legendary comedian Eddie Murphy's family is getting even bigger!
Murphy, 57, is officially expecting his 10th child. Earlier this week, the news broke that his partner of six years, Australian actress and model Paige Butcher, is once again expecting after she was photographed in Los Angeles sporting a fairly visible baby bump. Murphy and Butcher, 39, already share a two-year-old daughter, Izzy.
Proud papa-to-be Murphy is no stranger to the dad game. He shares five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy: Bria, 28, Miles, 25, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, and Bella, 16. He has one son, Eric, 29 with Paulette McNeely, and another son, Christian, 27, with Tamara Hood. He also has a younger daughter, Angel, with Melanie Brown, formerly Scary Spice from the popular 90s group, The Spice Girls.
Murphy rose to fame as a brilliant stand-up comedian in the 1980s and went on to famously star in Beverly Hills Cop, The Nutty Professor, and of course, Saturday Night Live, just to name a few. These days, it seems pretty evident that he has passed down his love of acting to his children. His oldest daughter, Bria, for example, has starred in a number of recent films including Daddy Day Care (with Murphy) and most recently, Amateur Night alongside Jason Biggs and Ashley Tisdale. At the premiere of Amateur Night back in 2016, Murphy was spotted supporting his eldest daughter alongside his current partner, and ex-wife Nicole. Nicole has also been no stranger to the spotlight herself and was a prominent figure in all three seasons of the short-lived reality series Hollywood Exes, which ran from 2012-2014.
Although they didn't start dating until 2012, Butcher and the iconic entertainer met in 2006 while she was filming the comedy Big Momma's House 2 starring Martin Lawrence. She has also appeared in the 2003 comedy, Something's Gotta Give. Butcher seems to have already formed a close relationship with several of Murphy's older children. In addition to being invited to Bria's 2016 premiere, Butcher and his daughters have been frequently photographed together, running errands and enjoying each other's company around town.
The latest member of the Murphy clan is set to make his or her debut this December.
