Eddie Murphy is now a proud father of 10 children.The American actor welcomed his newborn son already named Max Charles Murphy with fiancee Paige Butcher on Friday, his publicist announced. The boy’s middle name is a tribute to Murphy’s older brother and fellow comedian Charlie Murphy, who died of leukemia last year.
This is the second child for Murphy, 57, and Butcher, 39, an Australian model and actress, who both have been together since 2012. The couple already have a 2-year-old daughter, Izzy. Eddie Murphy’s other children are 29-year-old Eric with Paulette McNeely; 28-year-old Bria, 25-year-old Miles Mitchell, 23-year-old Shayne Audra, 18-year-old Zola Ivy and 16-year-old Bella Zahra with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy; 27-year-old Christian with Tamara Hood; and 11-year-old Angel Iris with Mel B.
“The mother and her baby are doing well,” a spokesman said in a statement to the American press, including Page Six.
It is the second child of the couple outside the eight children of the actor. At 57, Eddy Murphy is dad for the tenth time and he is very happy.
The actor does not have time to work. Between his professional career and his family life, the famous actor has a busy life.
From his relationship with his ex-wife Nicole were born 5 children, Bria (29 years old), Miles (26 years old), Shayne (24 years old), Zola (18 years old) and Bella (16 years old).
Then there is Eric (29, whose mother is Paulette McNeely), Christian (28, whose mother is Tamara Hood) and Angel (11, born from a short story with Mel B).
It’s a very emotional year for Paige Butcher and Eddy because after the announcement of her second pregnancy, the couple got engaged.
